Rajiv Halim is a saxophonist, composer, and educator from Chicago, IL. He was born to immigrant parents from Belize on September 15, 1990, incidentally the same birth day as saxophonist, Cannonball Adderley. However, it was Charlie Parker who became the beacon that sparked Rajiv’s love for improvisation and creative music. The Rajiv Halim Quintet performs regularly in the greater Chicagoland area and features trumpeter Victor Garcia, guitarist Scott Hesse, bassist Junius Paul, and drummer Michael Piolet. Rajiv’s debut album “Foundation” was released in August 2015 and is available for digital purchase worldwide.
