Jazz Jam hosted by Ted Knowlton, keyboards w/ Ken Steiner, bass Michelle Hirsch, drums & special guest: Lisa Marie, voice

"Our group starts with bass, drums, and piano. Ken & I (Ted) have been around longer than the other Jazz Jam musicians. We are probably not as "out of the box" (that's Michael's favorite term) as some of the younger musicians hosting the Jam, but we bring a wealth of jazz experience to the party." And, we love "out of the box" folks to jam with. Give us your freedom of expression; we give you a solid base of jazz experience. You draw us out; we draw you out!
