JazzMN Presents NextGen Jazz!

Join the JazzMN Orchestra for a special Sunday Matinee performance that highlights the future of jazz! The March 5th concert will feature saxophonist R.W. Enoch, vocalist Alex Nester and hip-hop artist Elmer Demond from the group Urban Renewal Project

These young Los Angeles artists bring experience with projects in film, TV (American Idol), and performances with music icons Santana and Tito Jackson. The unique Urban Renewal Project style has been described as encompassing original soul, hip-hop and jazz grooves with a big band sound.

“Urban Renewal Project incorporates a variety of sounds: pop, funk, soul, rock and more to allow the listener to experience everything all at once. In the course of a couple of years, Urban Renewal Project has become a force to be reckoned with.”
