May 27: Jean Caze. Featured with Jean are Vaughn Henry – keys, Ivan Malespin – trombone, Josh Allen – bass, David Chiverton – drums, and Harvel Nakundi – percussion.
Winner of the 2006 International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition and the 2004 National Trumpet Jazz Competition, Jean Caze has emerged as one of today’s most exciting new voices in jazz. At 27, Jean has performed with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Najee, Arturo Sandoval, Roberta Flack, Al Jarreau, and George Duke, to name a few. Jean also played with the legendary rock group “Chicago” live on NBC (while in high school), and has opened for the Wynton Marsalis Quartet. Most recently, the Haitian-born trumpeter won second place in the 2007 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.
