The Makanda Project was formed in 2005 to explore the previously unrecorded compositions of Makanda Ken McIntyre (1931-2001), a prolific, innovative, and unsung multi-instrumentalist, educator, and composer whose contributions to the development of jazz from the 1960s onward remain under-recognized. Upon Dr. McIntyre's passing, 350 unrecorded compositions were discovered - a significant body of work that would have remained unknown to the public without the Makanda Project's efforts. Leader/arranger/pianist John Kordalewski, a former McIntyre student, has arranged over 60 of these compositions for the large ensemble.
