TRY JAZZ is a street roots project taking Jazz to the people, rather than playing it above them.  A deep project with growing support, TRY JAZZ hears the question 'What IS Jazz?' and responds with four bold experiences that affirm:  'Jazz Is Blue'; 'Jazz Is Funk'; ' Jazz Is Soul'; 'Jazz Is Now'

The project Artistic Director, trumpeter Mr. Derrick Gardner, is an award winning composer, arranger, international recording artist and professor of Jazz. He leads TRY JAZZ on four albums that are being recorded live to celebrate the Blues, Soul, Funk & Hip Hop genres highlighted by the presence of their Jazz ancestry.
