 The Uptown Jazz Tentet is a dynamic large jazz ensembles founded in 2016 and co-led by trumpeter Brandon Lee and trombonists Willie Applewhite and James Burton III. The band includes some of the most venerable young sidemen in all of jazz, many of whom have been Dizzy’s Club headliners—trumpeter Tatum Greenblatt, alto saxophonist Andy Gutauskas, tenor saxophonist Jon Irabagon, baritone saxophonist Carl Maraghi, pianist Adam Birnbaum, bassist Clovis Nicolas, and drummer Aaron Kimmel. Influenced by the writing styles of Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Quincy Jones, Gil Evans, Wayne Shorter, the Wynton Marsalis Septet, and J.J. Johnson’s ten-piece band from the mid-1960s, the Uptown Jazz Tentet puts a fresh stamp on some jazz’s essential styles. Don’t miss their debut performance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola!
