Spirit Jazz Tag Line

SpiritJazz Group PhotoThe music of SpiritJazz is modern in its truest form but its melodies are derived from familiar songs and hymns that have stood the test of time. The SpiritJazz ensemble has been schooled in the traditions of American jazz style and improvisation and the musical arrangements contain all the key elements of good swing and solid jazz ensemble playing. Hearing these arrangements will give you a fresh take on classic and loved tunes of the Church. It is our mission that the music of SpiritJazz unites the richness of jazz with the hope and promise of faith in order to enhance each melody's original meaning.

Tom is currently the Music Coordinator for Salem Lutheran’s Discover Service in Minneapolis. Karen is the Music Director at All Saints Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove. Together they have created SpiritJazz, which performs throughout the Twin Cities area.
