Winner of the 2006 International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition, and the 2004
National Trumpet Jazz Competition, Jean Caze has emerged as one of today’s most
exciting new voices in jazz. At the age of twenty-seven Jean has performed with the
likes of Herbie Hancock, Najee, Arturo Sandoval , Roberta Flack, Al Jarreau, and
George Duke to name a few. Jean also played with the legendary rock group “Chicago”
live on NBC (while in High School), and has opened for the Wynton Marsalis Quartet.
Most recently, the Haitian-born trumpeter won second place in the 2007 Thelonious
Monk International Jazz Competition.
