UPTOWN JAZZ TENTET

Welcome to the official home for the Uptown Jazz Tentet (UJT).  We are a ten-piece jazz ensemble led, collaboratively, by trumpeter Brandon Lee and trombonists Willie Applewhite & James Burton III. The other seven members of UJT are the most reputable and desirable sidemen on the jazz scene today: Andrew Gutauskas (alto sax), Jon Irabagon (tenor sax), Carl Maraghi (baritone sax), Tatum Greenblatt (trumpet), Adam Birnbaum (piano), Clovis Nicolas (bass) and Aaron Kimmel.  

UJT is dedicated to one purpose, to make you feel good. Our music, mostly composed and arranged by our co-leaders Brandon, Willie and James, is tied together by one common-thread, joy. It is that joyful spirit in our music that we desire to be transferred and felt directly by you, our UJT community.


Our debut album, There It Is, released March 1, 2017 reached #18 on the JazzWeek Charts for radio play.
