SoCal Jazz Collective

SoCal Jazz Collective consists of veteran and up-and-coming jazz performers and educators from LA and Orange counties. Led by bassist Karim Yengsep, it performs the hard-swinging and high-energy sets of original material mixed with some of the classic charts from the bands like Jazz Messengers, Eastern Rebellion, et al. Currently, the Collective performs as quintet or, when possible, as a sextet.
