On Welcome to New York, his first-ever solo-piano collection, Asherie’s mastery of various masters’ styles, from Waller and Tatum and Dave McKenna on down, puts him in the elite group of heritage pianists who rode in on the wave of Wynton Marsalis traditionalism...

Terry Myers

With his smooth, mellow-toned lucidity, tenor saxophonist Terry Myers evokes memories of swing-era stalwarts Bud Freeman and Budd Johnson. But when he lathers up—or pulls out his soprano sax—the thrust and grit of Zoot Sims come to mind. The fun begins as...

West of State Street/East of Harlem
John Burnett Swing Orchestra

Trombonist Brent Wallarab is a truly wondrous arranger, and together with trumpet/flugelhorn ace Mark Buselli, he co-leads a 12-piece band that wraps itself around each of his charts with luscious liquefaction. The B-W bandstand is also graced with half...
