Saxophonist Javon Jackson initially comprised ‘Jazz by 5’ in an effort to perform, tour and collaborate with his close friends, all of whom have made an indelible mark on the jazz genre.
Local drummer Domo Branch and his Quintet will open the concert in a program entitled Domo's Delight with Domo Branch, tenor saxophone Devin Phillips, trumpet Noah Simpson, acoustic piano Charlie Brown, acoustic bass Eric Gruber.
