Welcome to Philadelphia Jazz Project

Economy of Scale


The great bassist/composer, Charles Mingus left an indelible imprint on Jazz music. He was an incredible force of nature and a fierce believer in his dreams. He was an amazing bandleader who could squeeze intense performances out of any ensemble and an audio alchemist who truly understood the meaning of the term, "economy of scale."

But, Charles Mingus was first and foremost a student of the music. One of his lasting legacies is his influence on other students of the music. One of those studious legions is Philadelphia bassist/composer Keith DeStefano. On Friday, May 17th at 7:30pm, he brings his ensemble, Puzzlebox to the Philadelphia Clef Club 738 South Broad Street, to share some music with texture, swing, depth and voluptuousness.

Also on the bill, as the opening act is Argentina-born, percussionist, Christian Noguera and his ensemble. Don't miss this concert.

This event is FREE OF CHARGE and open to the general public.

However, you must RSVP by sending an email message to

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
