This 8-piece crossover-jazz ensemble is comprised of L.A.s top jazz musicians handpicked by drummer and bandleader Jason Lee Bruns. They boast a virtuasic 3-piece horn section, a highly versatile rhythm section, and powerful lead vocals by singer Kevin Baché [bah-shay]. The music of this band, while rooted in the jazz tradition, mixes a variety of genres and thus is highly accessible to almost all musical tastes. The group performs at some of L.A.’s top jazz venues and has concluded their second tour to Japan this July. Their last two albums “Live at Catalina” and “Cherry Avenue” (produced by Bruns for the Panout Music Group™ label) were Top-10 charting, aired on 300+ radio stations nationwide, and the latter spun on K-JAZZ 88.1FM for over a year.
