SEBA MOLNAR QUINTET-
Seba Molnar is a saxophonist, composer, and educator, based out of Boston, Massachusetts. Seba has had music in his life from a very young age and has been gigging on saxophone and clarinet since the age of twelve. He went on to study at the College of Music. While at Berklee, Seba had the opportunity to study with world-renowned saxophonists George Garzone, Bill Pierce, and Tia Fuller.
Though his music is heavily rooted in jazz, Seba’s curiosity for new sounds and innovation has enabled him to create a wide array of music that transcends genre. Since graduating in 2016, Seba has made a name for himself as an in demand saxophonist by leading his own jazz groups, as well as playing regularly with bands like Java Jukebox, The Collective and The New Review.
In March 2020, Seba released his debut album “Level Up”, featuring mentor George Garzone, with Jens Sweeting, Soso Gelovani, and Clemens Grassman.
JENS SWEETING JUNKANOO JAZZ FUSION PROJECT -
Jens Sweeting is a jazz pianist and composer from Freeport Bahamas. He has worked as a professional musician for the past 14 years starting in Freeport, then moving to Florida, Boston and New York city before coming back to Freeport in 2020. During that time he was teaching, touring, composing, and performing music regularly with a variety of bands, artists and styles, including jazz, fusion, gospel, funk and reggae. He also created his own brand of Jazz and Junkanoo fusion music.
After earning a BA from Berklee College of Music for performance and composition, he continued his studies at Manhattan School of Music to earn a masters degree in Jazz piano, composing and arranging. While at MSM, Jens studied closely with Grammy nominated pianist and composer Elio Villafranca, whose music features a blend of Cuban rhythms and Jazz.
Jens' pianistic style is rhythmic and improvisational, reflecting his experience as a drummer and beller, rushing in Junkanoo groups during his youth. Being of mixed heritage - Bahamian, American and Danish - the blending of cultures has always been a natural form of his musical expression.
