Winner of the 2015 Downbeat Readers Poll and 2016 Downbeat Critics Poll for Baritone Saxophonist of the Year, Gary Smulyan is recognized as the major voice on the baritone saxophone. His playing is marked by an aggressive rhythmic sense, an intelligent and creative harmonic approach -- and perhaps most importantly – a strong and incisive wit. Smulyan carries on the rich tradition of the jazz organ quartet, first explored by jazz heavyweights such as Fats Waller and Count Basie in the 1920s, with his own jazz organ quartet featuring jazz guitarist Peter Bernstein, organist Mike LeDonne and drummer Joe Farnsworth.

Willie Jones III (WJ3) Jazz Sextet
With an unparalleled style of rhythmic expression, Willie Jones III is one of the world's leading jazz drummers. Jones brings together five of his gifted, world-renowned friends to form an all-star jazz sextet....WJ3 All-Stars.

Tenor saxophonist, Jeff Rupert has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings with artists like Maynard Ferguson, Sam Rivers, Mel Tormé, Diane Schuur and Benny Carter.  He has performed at festivals and venues around the world. The Rupert Group blends jazz excellence with the vocal mastery of 22 year-old jazz singing phenom and runner up in the 2015 prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, Veronica Swift, along with piano accompaniment from highly acclaimed, Richard Drexler. Marty Morell on drums and Ben Kramer on bass round out the group.

Jazz pianist, composer and Grammy-winning arranger Bill Cunliffe is known for his swinging and lyrical pianism.  He performs around the world as a leader and sideman as well as a soloist with symphony orchestras.  In the Bill Cunliffe Trio, Cunliffe teams with bassist, Martin Wind, and drummer, Tim Horner, to create a piano-driven exposé of some of the most popular Jazz music today.
