“Percussionist Rodney Green has been a fixture on the jazz scene since he was 17. Today he is a seasoned professional who has worked with the biggest names in jazz, including Charlie Haden, Ravi Coltrane, Lizz Wright, Eric Reed, Benny Green, Mulgrew Miller, Terell Stafford, Greg Osby, Christian McBride, Joe Henderson, Diana Krall, Tom Harrell, Herbie Hancock and Dianne Reeves.”

Recent recipient of the number-two spot for the 2017 DownBeat Critics Poll inthe category “Rising Star—Tenor Saxophone”, Dayna Stephens has garnered critical acclaim over the years for his playing, compositions and arrangements.  

DownBeat’s James Hale describes Gratitude, the saxophonist/composer’s eighth release as a leader, as a “highly cinematic listening experience, full of roiling seas and shifting skies.”

Jazz in the Cave is curated by St. George's Music Director Alex Nguyen 

“She has a gift for the music of words, a feel for the stories they tell and an instinct for how to drape a lyric elegantly across a vivid melody… Lawry, effervescent and riveting, imbued her singing with a freedom.”
