Jazz composer, pianist, and educator Darrell Grant is a creative artist who harnesses the power of music to create change. Whether through performing, composing, speaking, educating, or organizing musical initiatives around community, sustainability, or social justice, he seeks to leverage a deeper level of engagement and connection.
Composer, trumpeter, and banjoist, Douglas Detrick's work is distinguished by its quiet thoughtfulness and its embrace of good ideas from unconventional sources. His ensembles include chamber music-jazz hybrid AnyWhen Ensemble and roots-inspired band Little One.
The AnyWhen Ensemble's signature instrumentation (trumpet, saxophone bassoon, cello, and drumkit) sets them apart, but they make their real impact through Detrick's original compositions that integrate chamber music conception with jazz spontaneity.
Little One combines Americana, jazz, and chamber music with original songs. The quartet’s unconventional instrumentation with Detrick on clawhammer banjo, voice, and trumpet, William Seiji Marsh on guitar, Lauren Elledge on viola, and Andy Rayborn on bass clarinet gives them a chameleonic ability to access a unique range of sounds and colors.
