George De Filippo and Marilyn Avenali formed Jazz Mandala in March 2013. George De Filippo is an accomplished flautist and alto saxophonist. Marilyn Avenali is a brilliant pianist. Together we form the creative core of Jazz Mandala. As as duo we cover a wide range of jazz classics, ambient, contemporary smooth jazz, groove, and Bossa Nova standards, Our talented rhythm section completes the Jazz Mandala Quartet and offers a fuller sound for special events, weddings, fundraisers, and larger venues. We would appreciate the opportunity to perform for your next event. Our goal is to provide great music from the Great American Songbook. You can expect solid arrangements, great sound, and compelling improvisations. Let us create a custom set-list that gets your attendees on their feet as they experience the electricity of live jazz.
