new music meets chamber jazz
The Resonance Collective is a group of NYC-based string players with a diverse range of expertise who have joined forces to merge new classical music with chamber jazz. With a line-up that ranges from a string quartet to a jazz orchestra, its members are Grammy-nominated musical omnivores who have performed in major venues throughout the world such as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Library of Congress, and Wiener Musikverein. They have made music with major artists including Steve Reich, Maria Schneider, Paquito D’Rivera, Brad Mehldau, Chris Thile, Bjork, Kurt Elling, Esperanza Spalding, and Yo Yo Ma. The musicians of Resonance Collective bring their wealth of experience as jazz artists, new music champions, vocalists, fiddlers, and composers to a unified mission of more clearly defining and innovating the genre of contemporary chamber jazz. Through live performances, recordings, and new music commissions, they passionately aim to bring this under-appreciated genre to wider recognition.
