The Cohen-Rutkowski Project


CRProjectMerrimans242The Cohen-Rutkowski Project is a high-energy acoustic jazz ensemble combining a large proportion of original compositions with classic pieces from the tradition. Listeners have drawn comparisons to the compositionally-oriented Dave Brubeck group, groovy hard-bop groups such as The Jazz Messengers as well as genre-expanders like the Roy Hargrove Quintet. The band regularly performs at Merriman's Playhouse (Fort Wayne) and in concert at the Indy Jazz Fest.
