This event has been cancelled for the safety of our audience, musicians, staff, and volunteers. We look forward to returning with live concerts in the WDNA Jazz Gallery when this passes, as all things must. Stay tuned!

Jason Hainsworth is in demand both as a saxophonist and as a composer/arranger.  As a native of Houston, Texas, he studied at the prestigious High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.  He later went on to study music at the University of New Orleans with legendary jazz educator Ellis Marsalis and saxophonist Victor Goines. Hainsworth then moved to the New York/ New Jersey area to continue his musical studies at William Paterson University while performing along the east coast.  After receiving his bachelor’s degree in music, Jason matriculated at Florida State University for graduate work where he earned his Masters degree in Jazz Studies.

As a performer, Mr. Hainsworth has led his own quartet throughout the world to critical acclaim, most recently headlining the Suriname Jazz Festival. He has also performed and recorded with Michael Dease, Johnathan Blake, Renee Rosnes, Randy Brecker, Lewis Nash, Glenn Zaleski, Tim Warfield,  and Martin Bejerano just to name a few.  Additionally, Jason is a current touring member of Ed Calle’s Mamblue (2016 Latin Grammy Winner), Tito Puente Jr’s. Latin Jazz All Stars, and Melton Mustafa Jazz Orchestra. He has performed extensively throughout the United States and South America.

ABOUT JE: Jazz Encounters takes place every, second Friday of the month. After the band performs, it’s an open jam! It’s a fun session led by vocalist, violinist and educator, Nicole Yarling. Be good at your instrument and be ready to play! All ages welcome.
