Flavour

Flavour was created by pairing the talents of keyboard engineer and composer Lawrence Ross, with the big sound and delightful tones of saxophonist Bryne Donaldson. Formed in 2010 in Phoenix, AZ, the idea was a small footprint band with a big sound. The purpose: to satisfy a niche in the market for venues that had no stage for a full band, but yet still wanted live music. The combination of Bryne’s old school, gospel influences and Lawrence’s new age sounds is a unique and exciting blend. The group started playing cover tunes in upscale restaurants, resorts and country clubs in the Phoenix area

David Jans

I am David Jans, a Maastricht/Luxembourg based Alto Sax player and Composer. Due to my education and influences I like juggling around many different styles but with a main focus on Jazz. Artistically, I am influenced by many artists from Jazz to Classic to Film Music and any kind of Rock Music, such as Kenny Garrett’s expressive sound on Alto Sax, or the incredibly story telling music from Hans Zimmer with the simplest melodies or even the powerfulness of metal music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
