Portrait In Jazz:

In some form, Portrait In Jazz has been together since 1993 when Ellenberg was working on his Master's Degree in Jazz Composition at New England Conservatory. The group began as a trio of guitar, bass and trumpet and grew from there. As the gigs required, saxophone, drums and vocals were added to fill out the sound. Portrait In Jazz has performed hundreds of gigs over the years and continues to perform throughout New England at private and corporate events as well as publically at various clubs and restaurants. The flexibility in instrumentation allows this group to play everything from smaller, more intimate functions where ambience is essential to high-energy dance related events as weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Corporate events. Though the primary focus of Portrait In Jazz is performing jazz standards, we can easily and comfortably cover many Motown and rock classics for upbeat, extended dance sets.

The Brad Ellenberg Quintet:

This band was put together in 2008 and grew out of Portrait In Jazz. Though the members are the same, the focus of the band is on performing many of Ellenberg's original jazz compositions. Rendezvous, their first cd released in January of 2010, was the culmination of these initial efforts. Their second cd of original music was released in March or 2014. Currently, the band continues to add new originals to their playlist with over 45 and growing. Performances by The Brad Ellenberg Quintet occur in more of a concert environment at clubs and public venues.

Portrait in Jazz is a amazing group of musicians who brought life to our holiday party. First of all, their music is fantastic. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed their playing. And - even when I didn't know exactly which style and selection of music to ask for, Brad Ellenberg used his good judgment to select pieces that were just right to fit the mood and the tone of our event. Beyond this, each of the musicians was a consummate professional. They arrived at our event ahead of schedule -which was a great comfort to me as the event planner. In addition, they were so accommodating - checking in with me at every step.

We were thrilled with Portrait In Jazz. They showed up early, looked great, were so accommodating and the music was out of this world. Everyone at the event raved about the music and it really made the event have a fun and lively feel. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Top Notch.
