Bringing together artists and audiences of all ages to experience the power of jazz, community, and swing!
Jazz Power Initiative presents Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam: Voices & Rhythm featuring Dr. E (Eli Yamin), Zah! Ensemble and Jazz Power with special guests Annette A. Aguilar, percussion, Michael Blake, saxophone and flute, Rubens de La Corte, guitar, and Jennifer Vincent, bass.
