Sara Jacovino

NYC based trombonist Sara Jacovino is an ambitious young composer and arranger who cut her teeth in the renowned One O'Clock Lab Band at the University of North Texas. Hailed by the likes of David Baker as having a completely unique compositional and performing voice, Sara has already drawn the attention of many seasoned professionals. In the fall of 2008, Sara made the move to NYC where she joined the BMI jazz composer's workshop led by Jim McNeely. In June of 2009, Sara was awarded the BMI Foundation's Charlie Parker Composition Award/Manny Album Commission after just her first season in the workshop. Earlier in 2009, Sara received the Airmen of Note's Sammy Nestico Award in jazz composition and was awarded Downbeat Magazine's Student Music Award in the category of jazz arranging. Similarly in 2008, Sara’s received two Downbeat Awards, including best Original Song and best Extended Composition. She also earned invitations to the prestigious Better Carter Jazz Ahead residency and Ravinia Steans Institute residency, while being awarded the Kai Winding jazz ensemble prize and selected as one of three finalists in the International Trombone Association’s J.J. Johnson solo jazz trombone competition. Sara can be seen leading her original quintet and big band as well as her recently co-founded jazz philharmonic, The Orchestral Reeducation Commission.
