Some of guitarist John Schofield's music fits the bill too. Its reallly fun to revisit this music and add our own twist to it. i also am trying to have a couple of new original compositions per show. The band is a quartet featuring the amazing Marty Richards on drums and the great bassist from CT. Lou Bocciarelli.
