Experience some of the best jazz talent our region has to offer with the return of JazzWorks, including new music & arrangements by members of this all-star band! Featuring Howie Smith, John Klayman, Jack Schantz, Chris Anderson, Theron Brown, Aidan Plank, Bob Ferrazza, Reggie Jackson.

JazzWorks was originally founded in 2009 to be a resident ensemble of Tri-C JazzFest with a working collective of Northeast Ohio musicians showcasing their skills as composers, arrangers and performers. Since 2009, JazzWorks has re-imagined the works of legendary artists such as McCoy Tyner, Dexter Gordon, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Jim Hall and The Liberation Music Orchestra with Charlie Haden.

While the presentation of repertoire material is part of the vision, there has always been an emphasis on presenting the new music and/or arrangements by members of JazzWorks. The following is a chronological look at our past performances at Tri C JazzFest:

2009: The Music of McCoy Tyner
2010: The Music of the Liberation Music Orchestra featuring Charlie Haden
2011: Miles & Trane featuring Benny Golson and Ndugu Chancler
2012: Original Music by members of JazzWorks
2013: Tribute to Dexter Gordon featuring Javon Jackson
2015: Tribute to guitarist Jim Hall
2016: Tribute to Chick Corea

JazzWorks frequently performs in jazz clubs and concert venues in N.E. Ohio and its members are very active as educators, adjudicators, and guest artists throughout the United States.

Featuring Howie Smith (alto sax), John Klayman (tenor sax), Jack Schantz (trumpet), Chris Anderson (trombone), Bob Ferrazza (guitar), Theron Brown (piano), Aidan Plank (bass), Reggie Jackson (drums).
