The PHIL RANELIN Jazz Ensemble "... performance is dedicated to the continuum of the great Art Form known as Jazz and to the rich history of Central Avenue and it's people. Through the continuum of the straight ahead Jazz approach, with its Blues roots and inspiration and West Africa's poly rhythms , Ranelin's Ensemble seeks to present a necessary and vital element of the African American experience. America's only original art form, Jazz." - PR

Maestro Phil Ranelin, Band Leader - trombone; Kevin Toney - piano; Dean Hulett - bass; Jonathan Pinson - drums; Joe Berry - tenor sax & Flute; Curtis Taylor - trumpet.
