John Reynolds (a.k.a. Dr. John) assembled this ensemble as a means of showcasing some challenging & rarely performed compositions from the latter half of jazz’s existence. The group features John Reynolds (trumpet), Peter August (tenor saxophone), Paul Holtz (piano), Doug Walker (upright bass), and Charles Weller (drums). Our debut performance payed tribute to some of Wynton Marsalis’ early compositions. You will soon hear selections from the Clifford Brown/Harlod Land legacy. Many more prolific composers will be featured on gigs to come. We will be recording this summer and have several shows lined up.
