if the title isn't jazz enough for you... this will be a once-only collaboration between five great improvisers, long-time far-flung friends...

competition finalist etc.)

carl dewhurst - guitar (winner Ike Issacs International Jazz Guitar competition)
mark lau - bass (nyc)

A beautiful singer with a great voice who understands the groove. Bri has been playing all over town this year, and she deserves the great rap she's getting - but this is her farewell gig before she leaves for some jet-setting, so get your last fix...
Briana Cowlishaw (Voice)
Ken Allars (Trumpet)
Greg Coffin (Piano)
Brendan Clarke (Bass)
Nic Cecire (Drums)
