New England Jazz Ensemble New England Jazz Ensemble

The New England Jazz Ensemble is a performance group, as well as a composers forum, comprising regionally-based artists in both big-band and small-group configurations. It features original and contemporary arrangements and compositions, much of it generated by the ensembles members.

The group is helping to perpetuate the uniquely American large jazz ensemble as an art medium. It accomplishes this and its other goals by encouraging the writing of new work, addressing culturally diverse audiences, educating the public about jazz, sharing the band's wealth of expertise with the public in the form of concerts, educational forums and programs, and through guest performances and recordings. The New England Jazz Ensemble thus supports the opportunities for professional jazz artists to be employed in their specific areas of expertise in order to maintain the integrity of the jazz community in the region.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
