Jazzschool Institute OrchestraTwo outstanding big bands – the Jazzschool Studio Band, featuring many of the best high school musicians in the Bay Area, and the Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, featuring many of the Bay Area’s finest studio musicians present an evening of dynamic big band music at the Freight!

 

Under the direction of legendary composer, arranger, trombonist, and educator Dave Eshelman, the Jazzschool Studio Band showcases the cream of the high school crop of aspiring jazz musicians, and has played at festivals from New York to Montreux.

 

The Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, one of the hottest new big bands on the San Francisco scene, just released their first album, Cheap Rent, which AllAboutJazz.com calls “a splendid debut, one that betokens great promise for enterprises yet to come.”

 

Madeline Eastman is a jazz singer and fearless improviser with the intensity of a torch singer and the chops of a post-bop saxophonist. The Los Angeles Times calls her work, “a prime example of what jazz singing in the 21st century can be.”  

 


The California Jazz Conservatory offers a conservatory program devoted to the study and performance of jazz and related styles of music, fostering the artistic development of aspiring professional jazz musicians and building new audiences to sustain and promote the jazz art form. The institute integrates a comprehensive, progressive undergraduate education program taught by world-class musicians and music educators, preparing the next generation for a fulfilling life in the dynamic world of the performing arts.

 

Jazz in the Neighborhood is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to the proposition that musicians deserve fair, guaranteed compensation for their performances, even when ticket sales do not cover event expenses. We present affordable jazz concerts in communities all around the Bay Area and provide opportunities for aspiring musicians to take part in the time-honored tradition of learning on the bandstand, creating a bridge between classroom and stage. Our work is made possible through the generosity of JitN's members, donors, sponsors and funders.
