Fresh from a recent acclaimed performance at the Jazz Education Network Conference in Reno, Nevada, the Dave Slonaker Big Band performs original music and arrangements by Dave Slonaker featuring many top Hollywood jazz and studio musicians. Their album, Intrada, received a 2013 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album.
“…contemporary in the best sense of the word, harmonically sophisticated yet always accessible thanks to an unswerving reliance on time-honored melodies and rhythms. In other words, this is big-band jazz that quickens the pulse, swings hard and enhances the tradition.” – Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
