Kazzrie Jaxen Quartet
Kazzrie Jaxen (formerly known as Liz Gorrill) is an improvising pianist, vocalist, teacher, and composer. Known for her playful exuberance, originality, virtuosity, and ability to transport an audience, her musical expression ranges from free improvisation to jazz standards, from original songs to vibrational journeys into the dreamtime. She has recorded for the Jazz Records and New Artists labels, as well as independently. The quartet consists of Jaxen on piano, Charley Krachy (tenor sax), Don Messina (bass), and Bill Chattin (drums). For more information on Ms. Jaxen and the quartet go to the following website:
