Ensembles led by James Sanders:
Conjunto is James Sanders’ main project to unite his classical training and theory with the freedom of jazz improvisation, all grounded in the lively rhythms of the Caribbean: rumba, bomba y plena, bolero and more.
With Proyecto Libre (Free Project), Sanders combines his Caribbean heritage and command of Afro-Latin idioms with a forward thinking, purely improvisational aesthetic by bringing musicians from both genres together in a freewheeling musical experiment.
Blue Violin Quartet
Blue Violin is the culmination of a two decade plus exploration of the art of jazz. James Sanders, a Chicago based musician and bandleader, calls it his tribute to the masters of the jazz violin tradition.
