The Uptown Jazz Tentet

CD Release Event

The Uptown Jazz Tentet is one of the most dynamic large jazz ensembles to emerge in 2016.  Founded and led collaboratively by trumpeter Brandon Lee and trombonists Willie Applewhite & James Burton III, the band is comprised of ten of the most venerable and ubiquitous young sidemen in all of jazz.  The compositional styles of Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Quincy Jones, Gil Evans, Wayne Shorter and Wynton Marsalis inform the ethos of this powerhouse group, shaping the band's unique and unmistakable sound.

The power of a big band + the intimacy of a small group.
