Open Invitation | The UCLA Jazz Ambassadors

This exciting new quartet came to be in 2010 through UCLA's jazz department, where three Californian musicians and a French drummer decided to form a band.  Brought together by their shared passion for jazz, their music is both traditional, steeped in the bebop and hard bop traditions, while still bearing the influence of the more contemporary aesthetics of gospel and hip hop.

After having played numerous concerts in the LA area, the quartet’s aim to travel and perform internationally led to their insatiable thirst for collaborations and new experiences. They have been performing for the past month in France and this will be their first time performing in Albania.

Ky kuartet i ri erdhi ne jete ne vitin 2010 nepermjet departamentit te jazz ne UCLA (University of California Los Angeles), ku tre muzikante kalifornian dhe nje baterist francez vendosen te formojne nje grup. Te bashkuar nga pasioni per jazz-in, muzika e tyre eshte jo vetem tradicionale, me baza ne bebop dhe hard bop, por njekohesisht e influencuar nga estetika me bashkekohore e gospel dhe hip hop.

Pas shume koncertesh ne zonen e Los Angeles, kuarteti ka patur nje deshire te madhe per te udhetuar, gje qe solli dhe nje etje nderkombetare per bashkepunime dhe eksperienca te reja. Ata kane performuar gjate ketij muaji ne France dhe kjo do te jete hera e tyre e pare ne Shqiperi.
