Freeing jazz’s borders, infusing its lifeblood, steering it towards greater freedom and more distinctive expression. More…

From that moment, she was hooked and was finally given her first saxophone, an alto, and her father began teaching her how to play. More…

REGGAE JAZZ 

It’s reggae, it’s jazz- it’s reggae jazz, and it could be said they were made for one another. The mad professors of Reggae Jazz Ensemble breathe new life into old music, leaving no style untampered with in their irreverent pursuit of tastefully enlightened musical fun. Ska, rock-steady, go-go, hip-hop, spirituals, be-bop, funk & acid-jazz collided at a party with the Beatles in Motown- and something new was born. RJE explores compositions of their own design along with those of others including Parker, Coltrane, Miles, Evans, Bonfi, Marley, Ranglin, Gaye, Lennon and McCartney.” More…
