The group recently recorded Meet Me At Minton’s – a compilation of classic big band hits amongst a string of scintillating originals. The album features the late jazz poet laureate Jon Hendricks, alongside Grammy-award winning vocalist Andy Bey, Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition winner Jazzmeia Horn and co-founder of legendary funk duo Sister Sledge, Kathy Sledge, the aptly titled Meet Me At Minton’s displays a powerhouse of esteemed vocalists, ranging from emerging prodigies to accomplished veterans of jazz.
