Special, swinging arrangements with Ed on Trombone plus Piano & Bass. This video features John Beasley on piano and Edwin Livingston on bass and was recorded February 2012 at Vitello's in Studio City CA.
A 17 piece ensemble featuring the highest caliber of creative musicians, performing intricate compositions mixed together with improvisation, incorporating the techniques of “classical” (both past and present) composers, plus solo and group improvisation with jazz and world grooves, create a scene where classical (“serious”) musical devices, playful jazz rhythms and improvisation can flourish together.
Recorded our first CD called "Into the Now". CD's are available for pre-purchase here.
