NuJazz Alternative

Coming full circle from jazz and symphonic musician, to record composer/arranger to composer for television and film, Jerry returns to his roots bringing the eclectic adventure along with him. He brings it all together with new directions in alternative jazz – a blend of jazz, rock and symphonic techniques. The result is a sonic layering of linear melodic bursts on a rock rhythm section.

All original compositions, the project is a challenging blend of pre-programmed digital audio (synths, percussion, strings and keyboards) and 13 live musicians. The CD RUSH HOUR with Jerry Grant and the L.A. NuJazz Alternative, features L.A.’s finest studio artists. They include:
