Jazz has never been static. While it’s core of improvisation, fellowship and soul stays ever constant, jazz music is adapting and being reshaped by the 21st century. New technologies, production methods, harmonies and rhythmic structures are rising from a deep well of creativity. Musicians from all over the globe, from disparate cultures and walks of life have joined in this renewed creative exploration. Join Joel Sena and his band as they explore this phenomenon, from its roots in the music of Miles Davis through to its current expressions. The program will also feature some of Joel’s original compositions and guest vocalist Phoebe Day

Joel’s music draws from a deep well of influences from Miles Davis to Kamasi Washington. He has released two short albums of original compositions that capture the essence of his personal experiences. On stage Joel creates a dynamic, high-octane performance exploring his love of improvisation and soulful melodies. He is unafraid to challenge the status-quo and push the boundaries between genres.
