Rodney Block Jazz Project

Rodney Block Jazz Project

The Rodney Block Jazz Project is a quartet comprised of lead trumpet, piano, bass, and drums, with extra vocalist as needed. Block, a classically trained instrumentalist, performs a unique blend of traditional jazz, gospel, hip-hop, Bebop, funk and soul. An Arkansas native, he honed his skills by playing in some of Kansas City's premier venues – Grand Emporium, Plaza III, Blue Room and Liberty Hall. His ensembles have opened for Jonathan Butler, Claude "Fiddler" Williams, Wynton Marsalis and Angela Hagenbaugh, among others. Based now in Little Rock, Block has provided music for various private and corporate events. The ensemble was recently featured in the live television recording AETN Presents: Front Row with the Rodney Block Jazz Project. The television program received outstanding reviews and was nominated for a 2007 Mid-America Emmy Award.
