Dan has appeared on more than 80 CDs, including eight of his own which have received critical acclaim and international airplay. GEORGE CABLES - PIANO George Cables is a significant figure in the jazz scenes of Los Angeles, where he first resided, and San Francisco, where he also lived. Collaborations and recordings with tenor saxophonists Joe Henderson and Sonny Rollins, trumpeters Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw, and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson made Cables’ wide-ranging keyboard skills, often on electric piano, amply evident. He has performed and recorded with Joe Henderson, Roy Haynes, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Sarah Vaughn, Tony Williams, Bobby Hutcherson, and Dizzy Gillespie, among others.

PETE CHRISTLIEB – TENOR SAX Pete Christlieb was introduced to the sounds of jazz through the recordings of Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker, John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley.

Gerald has had the honor of performing with Lewis Nash, Al Foster, Terrell Stafford and Clark Terry. From 2006-2008, Gerald toured extensively with Roy Hargrove in his quintet, and is currently a member of the Clayton Brothers Quintet.  But it is Gerald’s own trio, based in New York City, which provides him the most direct opportunity to explore and expand his own thoughts in music.

JEFF CLAYTON - ALTO SAX Reed specialist, Jeff Clayton is a versatile performer, bandleader, and studio musician whose diverse recording credits include work with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Madonna and Earth Wind & Fire.
