Maple Jam is a Vermont-based jazz a cappella band. These seven talented singers reinterpret favorite jazz and big band melodies with lush close-harmonies, cool percussion grooves, and soulful trumpet solos using only their voices. That's right: no instruments! From the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Neal Hefti and Miles Davis to Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Antônio Carlos Jobim and more - Maple Jam's got it covered!
"I always enjoy listening to Maple Jam. Their clever -- often amusing -- arrangements, sweet close harmony, and jazz swing make for an irresistible blend. It's a cappella singing in the finest tradition."
~ Walter Parker,
Vermont Public Radio Classical
"Your joy in singing and your synergy and energy come through loud and clear!"
~ Phyllis M., Bennington
