This is a unique ensemble co-directed by bassist Ron Wasserman and composer Miho Hazama. It's got an experimental outlook; its first two performances have found the group blending jazz with classical, rock, and music from all around the globe. Each performance also features a different guest artist, and this one is no different! We will be premiering some works by legendary composer Jim McNeely, who will also be sitting in on the piano chair for parts of it. Miho Hazara will also be premiering some works, and we'll be joined by an additional guest soloist: oboist Randall Wolfgang.
