Samples of our music

How best to judge a band? Listen to us and watch us.

Here are some tunes that the group recorded live at the City of Fort Lauderdale SunTrust Jazz Brunch and one evening in the studio in Oakland Park, FL. These MP3s are just two-minute samples. 

Send us your comments (be honest).
 

"Stella by Starlight" One of the sweetest melodies, from the movies. By Victor Young.

"Cherokee"  We want to go to the races on this swinger, but we restrain ourselves. By Ray Noble.

"Canteloupe Island"   Jazz with an R&B feel. By Herbie Hancock.

"Joy Spring"  Horn bop that swings. By Clifford Brown.

"Footprints"  Jazz meets waltz meets improv. By Wayne Shorter.
