The Swing Collective

The Swing Collective is a new quintet of enormously talented young musicians representing five countries of origin: Chilean tenor saxophonist and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Melissa Aldana, Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles, Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca, Japanese bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and Ulysses Owens, Jr. of Jacksonville, Florida. To witness these artists on a single stage is an exciting prospect, but tonight’s performance will be particularly special as they each debut new works composed specifically for this occasion.
