One evening. Two amazing artists! Jeff Kashiwa is one of the most compelling young saxophonists in contemporary jazz. Having established himself in the 1990’s as one of the most diverse saxmen during his decade long tenure with The Rippingtons, Kashiwa’s instincts led him to more dynamic endeavors through his solo career. It surprised many when Jeff left the group to venture out on his own, but he had things to say through his own music. Kashiwa now has nine CDs released under his own name and has continued to record as a guest artist with many other artists as well. In 2004, Kashiwa founded The Sax Pack, a trio of saxophone headliners, featuring himself, Steve Cole and Kim Waters. The group released two CDs together and charmed audiences with their Rat Pack style repartee’ in tours across the U.S. and abroad. His newest CD, Let It Ride, features a host of the greatest musicians in the world of Contemporary Jazz, including Russ Freeman, David Benoit, Chuck Loeb and Tom Schuman of Spyro Gyra.

Soul jazz saxophonist, Jackiem Joyner's release of Main Street Beat, his sixth album, coincided with his tenth anniversary as a recording artist. His 2007 debut, Babysoul, earned Debut Artist of the Year honors from Smooth Jazz News. Two years later, his sophomore set, Lil Man Soul, spawned two No. 1 singles on the Billboard chart and won the Song of the Year award for “I’m Waiting For You,” from the American Smooth Jazz Awards. His self-titled 2010 album solidified his position as a consistent hit-maker and in 2012 Joyner issued the gospel-jazz, Church Boy. Jackiem Joyner is a great addition to an evening of jazz in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.
