John Kalleen Group
The John Kalleen Group is a hot version of “Summertime,” a cool version of “Footsteps” and beautifully crafted originals! The JKG is a jazz quartet in the classic style, offering fresh compositions, echoing the admired hard bop and post-bop eras of the 50s and 60s, but infused with a modern, dynamic spark. And of course, they deliver swinging, spirited arrangements of the classics from those eras. An evening with the John Kalleen Group is a night of excellent musicianship, up-tempo energy and killer jazz with an incentive drive.
