Original music with Jean Fineberg's swingin' octet!

JAZZphoria is the exciting new band playing all original music from swing, to bebop, reggae, salsa, Middle Eastern funk, “and the kitchen sink!”

The Jean Fineberg-led octet bill themselves as "Groove Beat," because all of their material is contemporary and rhythm based, and their performances are up-tempo and geared toward a general audience. 

JAZZphoria wil premiere new works by Jean Fineberg, composed at her recent music residencies at The Studios of Key West, Florida; and the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Saratoga, Wyoming.

Jean Fineberg: tenor sax /flute
