Jay Killman and the Constellations

Jay Killman & the Constellations is an impressive and exciting modern jazz quartet, led by guitarist Jay Killman. The band performs mostly original compositions by Killman, with some arrangements of jazz standards and traditional folk songs. Killman’s compositions are truly unique as he pulls elements from a multitude of genres and inspirations – swing, indie, tone poems, blues, R&B, modern jazz, hip hop, romantic classical, folk and more. Killman’s compositions are much deeper than merely “good tunes”, with most of his original songs being inspired by and dedicated to a certain person or event in his life. The compositions intimately capture the character and subtleties of the complex subject. Killman’s arrangements and compositions have been featured at the Rose Theatre at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York to center stage at the Monterey Bay Jazz Festival in California. The Constellations brings Killman’s small group writing and composing to vibrant life. Along with Killman the band consists of Carlos Garcia on piano, David Canning on bass, and Jon Hill on drums; all of whom have been playing together for almost a decade. Because of the intimate connection and dedication of the band members each musician helps to elevate the other, push the music to new highs and actively engage the audience for a special performance each concert.
