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.
