Amelia's San Diego based quartet offers a fresh take on Jazz expression with an unconventional repertoire and a sound all their own. In addition to the usual jazz standards, interpreted by many groups, this band offers creative arrangements of contemporary popular songs. Familiarity is an important factor in musical appreciation and engagement. By incorporating jazz interpretations of popular music, this group sets itself apart in a way that makes jazz accessible to a vast new audience, while honoring the innovation that defines the genre.
What connects the members of this group is a passion for music, a love of Jazz and the fearlessness of “thinking outside of the box”. They also share a solid musical education, attained both by formal training and though years of performance across the musical spectrum. They have learned all of the rules and know how to break them, enabling them to connect with audiences of various tastes and ages.
