Bio

After touring internationally with the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, woodwind artist and vocalist Damian J has returned to the Miami of his youth to establish a new and singular voice dedicated to the preservation, development and education of jazz. The Damian J Project was created in 2013 following a series of local collaborations with bands such as Suenalo, French Horn and many others. A need for a network created specifically for musicians seeking to play jazz music was necessary and thus the first open source musical collaboration was the result. Since 2013, the Damian J Project seeks to perform with whomever, whenever and wherever jazz is welcomed. Each small ensemble in the project focuses specifically on a different time period in jazz and thus presents the history and future of this music chronologically beginning with the TRAD305,( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPrEcEis3L4 ) expanding the era of traditional jazz or "trad jazz" from 1914 until the rise of swing in the 1930s, that is where the Swingin' Sensations ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3gTRVL0Rjw ) take over illustrating the era of the big band until the 1940s where Los Havana Knights ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj3z-p7mb5c ) introduce the Latin tinge to American jazz in 1946 when Dizzy Gillespie traveled to meet percussionist Chano Pozo. These origins of Latin jazz take us up until the era of fusion and our Sessions 33 1/3 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpxgPtl4FPo&t=343s ) crew takes over performing all types of genre crossings and rhythmic complots. The final chapter takes us to today with the era of the modern day DJ and electronic music. Made from Scratch ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqMBwfXAAfs ) illustrates exactly what we think the future of jazz will be. A modern day scratch artist, Guti Talavera and the vintage jazzman, Damian J face off in a bout of improvisation with a modern twist as done only by the project. The project can birth any number of collaborations but these are the most popular. The beauty of this network of musicians is that we can cater to any type of event or venue.
