Hayner host, Keigo Hirakawa will introduce us to jazz legend Craig Bailey and his Ohio Jazz Players for a spectacular Jazz in March concert. Craig Bailey emerged in the 1990s to become one of the most inventive and significant reed players of his generation. A native of Cincinnati, he earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Miami in 1984; he later earned his Master of Arts in jazz from New York’s Queens College. After moving to New York in 1985, Bailey worked with big bands led by Charlie Persip (1985–1986), Slide Hampton and Ray Charles (1987–2003). He also worked with Panama Francis' swing combos and recorded with the Nancy Banks Orchestra and Bobby Watson 's big band. Bailey joined the Tana Reid Quintet in 1991, and in 1995, he recorded his debut album as a leader: A New Journey (Candid Records).

The Moxie Strings are a contemporary string duo who will be taking the stage for Hayner’s April concert. Alison Lynn will play a newly-invented electric “bodyless” cello and Diana Ladio will be performing on her more classic wooden bodied violin. The two both began as classically trained musicians, but each found themselves involved in a contemporary movement that explores experimental instruments, audio affects pedals, genre-busting rhythms and often mainstream melodies and rifts. They offer a fun and diverse experience for the audience as they redefine the role of strings in contemporary music.
