Recording artist REGINALD CYNTJE (born in Roseau Dominica, raised in St. Thomas, USVI) is an award-winning professional musician, composer, producer, and educator. When you listen to Cyntje perform, you hear a passion for life and love in his sound. He is active on the Washington DC music scene. Currently, he leads his own groups and works as a sideman in numerous bands. He is also the founder/owner of Jegna School of Music, a school that provides music lessons, workshops and mentoring concerts for intergenerational students; the founder and creative director of Cyntje Music, a one-stop music boutique that includes booking, curating and assisting artists; the author of Stepping Stones: 15 studies in improvisation; and a professor of music at Montgomery College. He has toured the US, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean and appeared on over 30 recordings including five of his own.


Native Washingtonian, ALLYN JOHNSON, is a multi-talented musician, composer, arranger and producer whose trademark sound gives brilliance and fortitude to the art of jazz improvisation. Allyn, a prodigy who began playing piano at the tender age of five, got his start playing piano for the youth choir in his uncle’s church. There he honed his inner musical gift.

While a student at the University of the District of Columbia, Allyn was mentored by the late great jazz legend Calvin Jones, a venerable figure in the international jazz community. At UDC, Allyn was the first recipient of the Felix. E Grant Scholarship Award in jazz performance. He graduated magna cum laude from UDC in 1997 with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Jazz Studies. Now Allyn has served for more than six years as an adjunct professor of music and assistant director of the Jazz Studies program before succeeding Jones as the director in 2005.

Allyn hopes to continue Jones’ rich legacy of service, musicianship and academic excellence. Allyn is one of the nation’s most sought after musicians in the jazz community. He is revered by musical giants as well as the “;young lions” of his generation. He was chosen for the highly competitive Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program in 2001 and returned to teach in the program in 2002. As a composer-arranger, he has a growing library of works for ensembles of varying sizes and instrumentation.
