Jim's Interview 6:540:00/6:54
TranzitionzJazz is back! Familiar faces and some new ones. Jim Thomas, TJ leader, on jazz flute, Nick Arseneau back on bass and Stu Mein returning on drums. Two wonderful musicians are new to TranzitionzJazz. Victor Xu on keyboards and jazz vocalist Johanna Lyn. We play lots of great songs and blend songs together into compelling variations that people love to hear. We perform jazz standards and jazz versions of well-known tunes.
We continue to play and seek out shows at clubs, festivals and other events. We will continue to do music for good causes as we did before and during the pandemic. Causes like Parkinson’s, Food banks, Alzheimer’s, front-line health care workers. If you want an evening or afternoon of great musical entertainment, give us a call.
