A SUMMER EVENING OF JAZZ MUSIC WITH THE JAN KUS QUARTET
An exciting new musical formation by the Slovenian-born, New York-based saxophonist, arranger and comp features some of the most promising young musicians on the scene today. Merging the influences of their various native cultures and living environments (the rhythmical complexities of the Balkans, the dancing joy of the South American musical traditions, the vast open plains of South East Europe, and the backbeats of the streets of New York), this dedicated group of musicians strives to create its own unique musical landscape, taking the listener on a trip – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Location: Central Library (Jamaica), 89-11 Merrick Boulevard, Jamaica, NY 11432
