Raîson d 'Être live @ Fulton Street Collective March 2017

Formed in late 2016, Raîson d'Être is Summers's performance vehicle for her original compositions. The quintet features long-time and like-minded collaborators whose unique artistic voices serve as inspiration for Summers's compositions and blend together to form a dynamic ensemble sound brimming with interplay and intrigue.


The ensemble debuted in Chicago and has since been invited to perform as part of the 2017 Toronto Jazz Festival and the 2017 Chicago Jazz Festival.
