The Baltimore Jazz Collective is an ensemble of Baltimore-area musicians that features each member’s musical voice, compositions, and arrangements. Though there is no single band leader, trumpeter and educator Sean Jones formed the collective in 2019. He drew inspiration from his time in the SFJAZZ Collective, where every member is responsible for contributing compositions. Many of the Baltimore Jazz Collective’s performances have been hosted at Baltimore’s newest jazz club, Keystone Korner, operated by National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Todd Barkan. Although public performances were put on pause during the pandemic, the ensemble has stayed busy and used generous support from Johns Hopkins University to write new music and arrangements, recorded in early 2021 for upcoming release.
