Jazz Writers' Collective and Thinkin' Big

Jazz Writers' Collective and Thinkin' Big are two cooperative bands inspired by the same goal: performing the compositions and arrangements of emerging Jazz writers. Founded by Jazz Composer and Arranger Lorenzo Carrano, the Jazz Writers' Collective has been showcasing the writing of some of the most talented composers in the Boston area since the summer of 2010. The band, that originally only featured three horns plus rhythm section (guitar, piano, bass and drums), eventually expanded its instrumentation to include three saxophones, two trumpets and a trombone.
