A B O U T

The [kāj] Ensemble (pronounced “cage”) is an eclectic group of all-stars and icons from the New York new music scene. Coming together in 2008 under the direction of composer and trombonist Kevin James, the ensemble embodies the ethic and aesthetic of it’s namesake. Unabashed in its search for originality, guided by a love of improvisation, drawn to risk-taking, unafraid of theatrics, The [kāj] Ensemble fuses the unique virtuosity of it’s members into a tightly unified whole, at once subtle and spontaneous, gritty and urbane, intimate and overpowering.
