Greg Yasinitsky, composer, saxophonist, and leader of the YAZZ Band, is winner of the American Prize for Composition, and is a recipient of grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Commission Project, Artist Trust and ASCAP. Yasinitsky’s YAZZ Band recordings have enjoyed international radio play and critical recognition. He also served as the composer and conductor of the JEN All Stars Big Band, which included some of the most acclaimed musicians in the world, and has written music especially for David Sanborn, Sean Jones, Tia Fuller, Clark Terry, Jeff Coffin, Dave Liebman and the USAF “Airmen of Note” big band.

Chris Spector of Midwest Record writes: “Hard charging, high octane stuff that never lets you down, or even comes up for air, this is a must for big band fans and a smoking lure to bring newbies into the tent. Killer stuff.”
