Joey Calderazzo is one of the best and most appreciated pianists of today. He has achieved the rare feat of going through a unique development in his career: From child prodigy to booked-out session musician to the absolute elite of the jazz world. Calderazzo began playing classical piano at the age of 8 and took his first jazz piano lessons at the age of 14. Not long after, he played at his first jam sessions and rapidly made a name for himself. At the end of the 80s, saxophone superstar Michael Brecker discovered the young pianist and brought him into his band. Brecker also produced Calderazzo's first album, which was released on Blue Note Records in 1990. From then on, a remarkable career took its course, in which the virtuoso pianist played his way into the highest spheres of the jazz world. He has worked with Pat Metheny, Kurt Elling, John Pattitucci, Jack DeJohnette, Peter Erskine, Jerry Bergonzi, Adam Nussbaum; the list goes on and on. Since 1998 he has also been a permanent member of the quartet of saxophone visionary Branford Marsalis, with whom he has received several Grammy nominations.
Multiple Grammy Nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow Miguel Zenón represents a select group of musicians who have masterfully balanced and blended the often- contradictory poles of innovation and tradition. Widely considered as one of the most groundbreaking and influential saxophonists and composers of his generation, he has also developed a unique voice as a conceptualist, concentrating his efforts on perfecting a fine mix between Jazz and his many musical influences.
Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Zenón has released fifteen recordings as a leader, including his latest, Música De Las Américas and the Grammy Nominated El Arte Del Bolero (2021), Sonero: The Music of Ismael Rivera (2019) and Yo Soy La Tradición (2018). As a sideman he has worked with luminaries such as The SFJAZZ Collective, Charlie Haden, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, David Sánchez, Danilo Perez, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Kurt Elling, Guillermo Klein & Los Guachos, The Jeff Ballard Trio, Antonio Sanchez, Brian Lynch, Joey Calderazzo, Steve Coleman, Ray Barreto, Andy Montañez, Jerry Gonzalez & The Fort Apache Band, The Mingus Big Band and Bobby Hutcherson.
Orlando le Fleming is one of the finest and most accomplished bassists in contemporary jazz. His virtuosic technique, boundless creativity and powerful beat are the hallmarks of a musician who has humbly earned a place in the upper echelon of American improvised music. Originally from the United Kingdom, Orlando seemed destined for a career in sports and was briefly a professional cricketer until he earned a place at London's Royal Academy of Music and his lifelong passion for music took over. Le Fleming's move to New York City in 2003 was timely. Shortly after arriving in the U.S., Orlando joined Jane Monheit's band and shared bass on her 2004 album Taking a Chance on Love with Ron Carter and Christian McBride; the following year, he recorded with jazz legend Jimmy Cobb on his Marsalis Music Honors album. In the ensuing years, musicians as diverse as Branford Marsalis, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Charlap, Billy Cobham, Seamus Blake, Jeff "Tain" Watts, and David Sanchez have relied on Le Fleming's steady beat and eloquent counterpoint to propel their rhythm sections.
Donald Edwards is an American drummer and composer. A professional musician since the age of 22, Edwards quickly gained a considerable reputation on the scene in New Orleans and later in New York. Edwards is an extremely versatile drummer, able to handle many styles from jazz to funk, pop, RnB and gospel, and has won several awards for his work. He recorded albums for the infamous Criss Cross Records label as a leader and worked with the top notch players on the scene such as Freddie Hubbard, Tom Harrell, Orrin Evans, Ralph Bowen, Wynton Marsalis, David Kikoski, Dave Holland, Russell Malone, Seamus Blake and many more.
