“What a fantastic organization the Pennsylvania Jazz Collective is!  They put together a group of musicians to play my music that was just beyond!  What a great band — what great people — and what a fun educational component they organized, too.  This organization is truly a tremendous resource for its community and for jazz at large.  I left feeling a tremendous amount of positive energy and hoping for an opportunity to return.  A big thanks to everyone at PA Jazz for all that you do!”
