Jeff Haas Jazz Quintet

DETROIT INSTITUTE OF ARTS, RIVERA COURT
FREE
 

The Detroit Free Press, describing Jeff Haas' music, wrote: "extending backward to his familial and religious roots and extended forward to his burgeoning career as a jazz musician, his blend of Jewish music and jazz offers a path lit with originality."  Jeff Haas frequently conducts diversity workshops in schools from elementary through college, using his original music as a springboard for interactive discussion about overcoming barriers and creating more awareness and understanding about people from different cultures and backgrounds.

Iconoclastic jazz master Ahmad Jamal praised Jeff Haas for "the depth of his compositional effort and the admirable use of the universal language of music."  He has written over 100 compositions. 

The evening will include a tribute to Jeff's father, the legendary radio host and founder of the Chamber Music Society of Detroit, Karl Haas, in celebration of his 100th birthday anniversary.
