The genius of Mason Jennings' music is its honesty: Only the very young or very courageous can afford to be so frank about themselves and the world. Still, after eleven albums, Jennings continues to be true to his experience, crafting songs that are equally striking and simple. No wonder this indie-troubadour sold 30,000 copies of his first two albums without a big label or P.R. push -- the music sold itself. Now, years later and with a loyal cult following, Jennings is touring the country in support of his latest effort, the critically lauded Always Been. While building on Jennings' rugged, acoustic early work, the album explores sunnier melodies and inspiring love songs. Watch this earnest and soulful artist perform live at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. Learn More

Juilliard Jazz is one of the newest programs of performance education inaugurated by The Juilliard School. Founded in 2001, Juilliard Jazz offers degrees at bachelor, master, and artist diploma levels. The curriculum combines tailored studio and coursework with professional performance opportunities designed to successfully integrate students into a thriving jazz environment. In addition, its faculty and students conduct national and international master classes and clinics.
Today, the Juilliard Jazz Orchestra and its ensembles play more than 50 performances annually including appearances at the Detroit Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and tour to destinations such as Costa Rica, Colombia, Japan, Spain, and Brazil. The ensembles perform regularly at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola and the world-renowned Blue Note in New York City. For the past several seasons they also have enjoyed week-long runs at Jazz at Lincoln Center with guest artists such as Kenny Barron, Lew Tabackin, Gerald Wilson, Bobby Watson, Ernie Andrews, Tom Harrell and Sean Jones.
These talented Juilliard young artists are taught by today's most active, innovative, and respected jazz musicians. The experienced Juilliard Jazz faculty combines a remarkable variety of technical and musical skill, as demonstrated on stages and in recording studios worldwide. The faculty ensemble, the Juilliard Jazz Quintet, opens The Juilliard School's concert season, performing in September 2010 to celebrate the beginning of an extraordinary 10th year.
