Bassist Wayne Roberts has been performing and teaching his many transcriptions from several sources but perhaps most notably from the Duke's 50-year musical legacy.
Pianist, Miro Sprague really needs no introduction to this tri-state area – we recognize him as a jazz pianist, composer and band leader known for his dynamic performance style and inspiring creativity.
Saxophonist, Michael Zsoldos is well known in this area as a fabulous musician, composer and arranger. michaelzsoldos.com
In 2010, Zsoldos released his debut CD with Miro, drummer Matt Wilson and bassist, Martin Wind. named "Off the Cuff."
