"The Missing Link Jazz Ensemble" is:  Giovanni, saxophone/clarinet/vocals  ●   Sid Townsend, bass  ●  John Householder, piano, keyboard  ●  Romeo Presutti., drums, percussion

The Ensemble has been evolving from its amoebic form since 2000 A.D. and continues to re-define itself at each presentation offering an appealing and entertaining mix of jazz styles. Using the muse as its guide, The Ensemble has given interpretation to the writings of Hoagy Carmichael ("Georgia On My Mind"), George Gershwin ("Summertime"), Paul Desmond ("Take Five"), Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Louis Armstrong, and other notables. Integrating lively sax/vocals, lilting keyboard, and sizzling drums with jazzy melody and improvisation, this band provides unique and interesting music that appeals to a wide audience.

Our keyboard extraordinaire is John Householder who moved from Montreal, Canada just to become part of "The Missing Link". With talent and excitement for his craft, "Chief Johnny" brings a special dynamic to Columbus and the world with great improvisational interpretations, which, until now, have only been heard from other galactic systems! The members of The Missing Link Jazz Ensemble, through no fault of their own, bring musical entertainment to the public and the "Missing Link" in music to humankind.

The Missing Link Jazz Ensemble has found itself entertaining corporations, has been a featured musical guest on WCLL television, has played at the Columbus Jazz & Rib Festival - twice, the Short North Sunday Jazz Series, Worthington Concerts On The Green, Gahanna Music In The Park, Central College Church Summer Concert Series, St. Elizabeth Festival, Starbuck's Coffee, for Toastmasters, for Big Fish Networking, and recently produced its first CD at Jazzy J's Nightclub in Columbus.
