Lauren Sevian Quartet

Thursday, April 27


Grammy and DownBeat "Rising Star" award winning baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian is one of the most in demand musicians on the jazz scene today. She came to NYC in 1997 to attend the Manhattan School of Music, and soon thereafter began touring with groups such as Diva and the Artie Shaw Orchestra. She can be seen performing as a bandleader around the NYC area with her quartet, the LSQ, or LSAT, her quintet co-led with alto saxophonist Alexa Tarantino, which won first place in the “Made in NY” jazz competition in 2018. As a sidewoman, she can be heard regularly with the Mingus Big Band, and has performed with countless other groups, notably the Dizzy Gillespie all star big band, Christian McBride’s Big Band, Robin Eubanks Big Band, and the legendary Count Basie Orchestra.
