The Jazz Thieves

Active since:

The Jazz Thieves, through personal and evocative lyrics, passionate and soulful improvisation, and thoughtful, wide-ranging originals revitalize jazz by reconnecting it to its roots. Inspired by their heroes Duke Ellington, Tom Waits, Bill Withers and Ray Charles, they "steal" the feel, fire and fervor of 70's soul, 50's R&B, church gospel, and Mississippi Delta blues, uniting it with jazz improvisation and imagination.  Their music is a modern exploration of the many stories, voices and styles that comprise and influence jazz. John Gray, the bassist, bandleader, composer, lyricist, and producer of The Jazz Thieves explores these styles in “Brooklyn Elegy”, using them to help tell his story
