The goal of the Redwine Jazz Band is the promotion, perpetuation, and performance of traditional jazz—America’s only indigenous art form. The Redwine Jazz Band performs “popular” music from the early part of the twentieth century.  The core of the band includes clarinetist Ben Redwine, bassist John Previti and Tom Mitchell.
