Endemic Ensemble

Founded by bassist Steve Messick in early 2010, the Endemic Ensemble is a modern jazz quintet based in Seattle, Washington with Messick on double bass, Travis Ranney on tenor and soprano saxophones, Matso Limtiaco on baritone saxophone and bass clarinet, David Franklin on piano, and Christian Krehbiel on drums. The music, composed by Messick, Franklin, and Limtiaco, is influenced by '60s hard bop, big band, and 19th and 20th century classical music, and is described as having "swinging rhythm, great tunes and purposeful playing - always in the service of the song, and usually anchored in the blues" (Lucid Culture)

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

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.
