Jazz is in the moment and each soloist tells their story through their improvised solo. Every generation of jazz musicians develops their own “voice” to tell their story bringing a brand new day keeping jazz vibrant and alive. With that in mind I want to introduce three jazz educators who are helping students find that voice and propel jazz into new frontiers. The Reno Jazz Orchestra (RJO), through our generous sponsors, provide a jazz education program at no cost to participating students or schools.
