Impressions Jazz Group

Friday, June 15 @ 5:15pm
Old Market Square

Impressions Jazz Group performs original compositions by Daniel Hollenberg — saxophonist, composer, and group leader. This creative ensemble is influenced by a diverse mix of musical and cultural traditions that give the group its unique sound. From the jazz world, compositions played by the group draw from bop, avant-garde, blues, and modal jazz. The group is also inspired by diverse traditions including Australian Aboriginal, South Asian, Jewish, and West African. The music creates a rich musical tapestry that inspires improvisation. The energetic and inspirational sound of the group’s music is also readily accessible to those unfamiliar with jazz, lending the group wider audience appeal. As noted by its group name, the main musical concept is that music is not a fixed phenomenon, but reflects only impermanent “impressions” of sound and rhythm that are constantly changing and “in flux.”
