**** “The arrangements [are] as full as an orchestra twice this one’s size…individuals excite, even astonish…Over nine glorious tracks, everyone gets to shine. Live at the Jazz Gallery is a strong contender for 2007’s TOP-10 lists.” - Michael J. West - Downbeat Magazine

The band – formed in 1995 at Greenwich Village’s Smalls Jazz club - armed with many of the young creative stars on the New York scene brings joy and energy, excitement, soulfulness and beauty on this 2-CD release.
