Charley Gerard is a saxophonist, author and

composer. He is a 2019 recipient of the

prestigious New Jazz Works grant from Chamber

Music America with the generous support of the

Doris Duke Foundation. He started The Broken

Reed Saxophone Quartet in 2002. The current

group is composed of Charley on alto sax, Jenny

Hill on soprano sax, Justin Flynn on tenor sax,

and Dimitri Moderbacher on baritone sax.

Together, they transport their audience

everywhere, from Mozart to New Orleans to

Cuba, to the pages of poetry and popular culture.

As its name implies, the group is as linked by its

sense of humor as it is by its unique sound.
