TransJazz  is  a  Metro-New  York  City  based gospel  band   that   creatively uses  contemporary jazz and  other  music  styles. This  intergenerational  and interdenominational  band   is  composed  of  nine-members  with  a  unique style that  has  been  described as “Sade,  turned on to Jesus.”   In 2004,  EBL released Transitions, the  debut  CD album of TransJazz  CD featuring their own very talented singer,  Vanessa  Daley-Johnson,  along with  guest  artists Meg Okura,  Ron Brown,  and  Ragan  Whiteside. Since  that  time,  TransJazz has   performed  at   over   seventy  events,  including   seven   concerts  with legendary  singer  Melba  Moore.  TransJazz   was  nominated  for  two  Urban Gospel Music Alliance awards.  In 2010,  the  band  released their second  CD album,  New Day, with the  theme of hope.  Recently, TransJazz  added two great   young   talented   musicians:   Franceska  Marie,   a  stand-out  gospel singer  with  gift  for jazz; and  Stephen Kopp,  a world-class  classical  pianist who also  has  a great  talent  for gospel  jazz.  Using  all this  variety of talent, TransJazz  is writing and  recording new songs  to be part  of their next  CD.
