Jazz sextet featuring original compositions by Ryan Cohan. The music ranges from expansive, orchestrally influenced multi-movement works to tone poems propelled by the raw improvisational power of the group's members. The instrumentation consists of two woodwinds (doubling between soprano and tenor saxophones, flutes and bass clarinet), trumpet/flugelhorn, piano, bass and drums. Guggenheim Fellow Cohan has released three CDs leading his sextet and received three Chamber Music America New Works Grants that produced the critically acclaimed One Sky (2005) and The River (2008) [inspired by Cohan's tour of Africa] and a New Work (2014) be premiered in 2015 scored for sextet plus string quartet. Available for concerts and clinics.
