FIVE PLAY, the sister group of the world-renowned DIVA Jazz Orchestra, was formed in 1999. The quintet is comprised of the large ensemble's rhythm section and two of its foremost soloists.
FIVE PLAY is rooted in the jazz tradition and is fueled and inspired by the members' collective, creative vision to swing through the 21st Century. The quintet's repertoire is comprised of innovative arrangements of classic and contemporary standards, as well as original music composed and arranged by band members. The group's library was conceived to highlight the distinctive styles of each individual and to create a unique, fresh, exciting and powerful ensemble sound.
FIVE PLAY has performed at many of the most prestigious concert halls, music festivals, universities and jazz clubs in the United States, including Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center
