Jazz By 5 is a musical collaboration that celebrates the eras of swing, bebop, avant-garde jazz and beyond. The performance includes a mixture of classic jazz standards coupled with original material from the members of the ensemble, who have performed with legends like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Frank Sinatra. Saxophonist Javon Jackson initially comprised Jazz By 5 in an effort to perform, tour and collaborate with his close friends, all of whom have made an indelible mark on the jazz genre.
