Question: What do you do when 5 All Star musicians with resumes like these perform on one stage?
Tom Scott - celebrated saxophonist with 34 solo albums, 14 Grammy Award noms, 3 Grammy Award wins renowned for his work with Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Join Mitchell, Steely Dan and musical director for the Academy Awards, Emmy Awards and his own band....the man has done it all! John Novello - well known for his many keyboard hats, has always been on top whether as musical director for Taste Of Honey, Donna Summer, founding jazz rock fusion monster Niacin or his Top 5 solo Contemporary Jazz album "Ivory Soul" which became the surprise breakout hit of 2016! Chris Standring - with a rich catalogue of numerous solo albums that showcase his unique guitar style, once again conquers the stage and charts with his latest smash "Ten" including two #1 chart topping singles "Ready Steady Flow" and "Like This, Like That". This guit man has truly got it! Neil Stubenhaus - bass player extraordinaire has kept the bottom pumping on too many hit albums to mention by greats like Quincy Jones, Tom Scott, George Benson Barbra Streisand, Don Henley and Take 6. In addition are the countless Motion Picture and T.V. scores you've heard Neil's magic touch on! Eric Valentine - on his latest album "Velvet Groove", with a who's who of featured artists, Mr. Groove demonstrates exactly why he's been such an in demand drummer for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Earl Klugh, Patti Austin, David Benoit, Lee Ritenaour, Eryka Badu and countess others!
