Connect. Create. Transform.
For trumpeter, jazz musician, and educator Jon Ailabouni, these three goals define his approach to music. Whether Ailabouni is touring in Brazil, Puerto Rico, or France, improvising with the likes of Kurt Elling and Paquito D'Rivera, or directing his jazz and concert bands at Luther College, in Decorah, Iowa, Jon is pursuing the musical connection, the generative spark, that manifests sound and emotion in the creative space, and transforms the musician and the listener in meaningful and unexpected ways.
