Jean Caze Quintet at Arts Garage June 30.
Friday, June 30 at 8 PM: The Jean Caze Quintet Comes to Arts Garge. Winner of the 2006 International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition, and the 2004 National Trumpet Jazz Competition, Jean Caze has emerged as one of today's most exciting voices in jazz. Jean has performed with jazz icons such as Herbie Hancock, Najee, Arturo Sandoval , Roberta Flack, Al Jarreau, and George Duke to name a few. While still in high school, Jean performed with the legendary rock group "Chicago" live on NBC. In 2007, the Haitian-born trumpeter won second place in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.
Jean has received abundant praise from critics, peers and jazz enthusiasts alike who have taken to Jean's lyrical tone and tasteful ideas. He has been hailed a "True Improviser" and even compared to Miles Davis by fellow trumpet player Carl Saunders. Though his roots are solidly planted in jazz, Jean can flawlessly switch between genres. "Strong, and unexpectedly diverse, Mr. Caze confidently evoked Miles Davis on a pensive ballad, 'Old Folks,' and a brisk anthem, 'My Shining Hour.' " -Nate Chinen, The New York Times
