Thrill the guests at your next celebration with an hour-long instrumental set from Russ Kaplan's Broadway Jazz. Bandleader Russ Kaplan will create up to two CUSTOM ARRANGEMENTS of your choice to include in the set--the perfect way to mark a milestone occasion or honor a special someone. The set will be performed by a trio of top New York City jazz musicians.
Russ Kaplan's Broadway Jazz is the resident band of the long-running concert series Russ Kaplan's Broadway Jazz Session, in which both new and classic Broadway songs are re-interpreted as modern improvisational jazz. The band includes musicians from a diverse array of New York's best jazz, rock and world music groups. The band's 2013 album The Ulysses Cycle was released on Ropeadope Records, receiving an Independent Music Awards "Vox Populi" honor. Bandleader Russ Kaplan is also a musical theater composer and co-creator of In Transit, Broadway's Drama Desk, Lortel, Drama League and Outer Critics' Circle Award-nominated a cappella musical. He is a Fred Ebb Award finalist who has developed work at the O'Neill Theatre Center, Primary Stages, Third Rail Projects, Prospect Theater, York Theatre, New York City Children's Theatre, and more.
