Klazz-Ma-Tazz

 

Founded in 2014 by violinist and composer Benjamin Sutin, Klazz-Ma-Tazz is a band with a vision to transcend boundaries of labels in music and people. Their music, rooted in the jazz idiom strives to include genuine influence from a multitude of folk music from around the world based on the various ethnic background of each band member; namely Klezmer, Balkan and Middle Eastern Folk music, Indian Classical Music, and Irish Folk Music, finding common musical and cultural identities from which these various forms are derived. Creating this musical melting pot makes NYC the perfect home for Klazz-Ma-Tazz, a city who’s entire history is based on the very idea of uniting people from around the world to create something new and distinct. Klazz-Ma-Tazz released their debut album, Tangibility, in September, 2015 on OneTrickDog* Records. The album has since received airplay on radio stations across the US and from Philadelphia to Hawaii, doubling the band’s global fan base. Tangibility was launched with sold out sets at Greenwich Village's cultural haven, The Cornelia Street Cafe to rave reviews by Fred Stal of RG Magazine, who described the music: “Wild, yet reserved, the music of Klazz-Ma-Tazz will surprise you, excite you and calm you, all in one sitting”.

J-Music Ensemble



The J-MUSIC Ensemble is an 8-piece instrumental band that is dedicated to bringing new perspectives to the world of Japanese music. Featuring blazing brass melodies and chilling saxophone solos, this band fuses its background in jazz improvisation with the catchy and brilliant nature of modern Japanese music to create powerful new versions of J-Pop/J-Rock songs, anime music, and more! The idea was conceived by Grammy-nominated saxophonist, Patrick Bartley, who grew up hearing video game and anime soundtracks while simultaneously learning jazz and other American music styles, and had a dream to someday bring those worlds together. The dream now a reality, the J-MUSIC Ensemble has been featured at anime conventions, Japanese culture festivals, and on international television, and continues to put on captivating performances that entertain and educate all at the same time.
