The band features: Jason Marsalis/vibes, Reuel Lubag/piano and cofounders Ed Littlefield/drums & Christian Fabian/bass. Formed in 2010, the band has already had four successful tours, held its third Native Jazz Workshop in 2014, and recorded their debut CD, released Spring 2013. The CD graced the jazz charts for four month in 2014.Tour performances around the world amazed the Quartet as well as the audiences, with every venue they played asking them to return.
In the American tradition, the band is culturally diverse: Ed Littlefield is Alaska Native/Tlingit-American, Reuel Lubag is Filipino-American, Jason Marsalis is African-American and Christian Fabian is Swedish/German-American. The Native Jazz Quartet is an exciting new band, with an exciting new message that turns performances into cultural stories into standing ovations. Band members and audiences alike are very excited by the power of Native/Jazz fusion
