The  Blackhawk Quintet is a project co-led by Elijah Freeman (sax) and Ariel Mejia (trumpet). Their goal is to bring authentic hard-bop to the Charlotte area and beyond. Mejia and Freeman have worked closely together performing and curating arrangements of their own originals as well as bringing to light some of the lesser-known standards and compositions from the jazz realm, specifically the hard-bop style. Past dates, spanning for all members of this group, include and are not limited to these venues: Sharp 9 Gallery, Knight Theater, Booth Playhouse, Stage Door Theater, Petra’s, etc. This group has recorded 3 albums in 2023, one of which is available on all streaming services (The Love Standards, 2023), and another in the works which was recorded at the legendary Rudy Van Gelder studio in Englewood Cliffs, NJ.
