The Young Lions, a modern jazz group from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, started as a small combo group created by jazz professors Robert Baca and Aaron Hedenstrom. The Young Lions originally played jazz standards, but the group grew into a collaborative effort towards writing originals, and transcribing other modern jazz arrangements. With charts inspired by John Raymond, Jakob Bro, Kamasi Washington, Ambrose Akinmusire, Robert Glasper and Marquis Hill, the Young Lions aim to create and improvise off of multiple genres and sound-scapes.
