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.
