Hard bop drummer Louis Hayes has been a force in jazz since the mid-1950s when he began working-as a teenager-with Yusef Lateef, Curtis Fuller, and other artists hailing from his home of Detroit. Later he played with legends such as John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and Wes Montgomery. He has released nearly two dozen albums as a leader.
Hayes's main influence during his formative years was Philly Joe Jones. His work with three groups in particular is what he is perhaps best known for: Horace Silver's Quintet (1956-1959), the Cannonball Adderly Quintet (1959-1965), and the Oscar Peterson Trio (1965-1967). Hayes often teamed up with Sam Jones, both with Adderley and Peterson, and in freelance settings.
Grammy Award winning saxophonist Vincent Herring has developed into a virtuoso with a voice that is uniquely intense and vigorous with energy and direction. He is considered one of the premier saxophonists of his generation.
Jeremy Pelt has become one of the preeminent young trumpeters within the world of jazz. Forging a bond with the Mingus Big Band very early on, as his career progressed, Pelt built upon these relationships and many others which eventually lead to collaborations with some of the genre's greatest masters.
Rick Germanson has been a highly in-demand pianist on the New York City Jazz scene for over a decade. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Rick moved to New York City on the heels of winning the GRAND PRIZE at The American Pianists' Association Jazz Piano Competition in 1996. His accomplishments have garnered much adoration from the media and led to him being chosen as Best of New Talent in 2004 by All About Jazz NYC.
Known for his musical versatility, bassist Dezron Douglas is one of the most in demand young bassists in jazz today. Composer, educator and bandleader, Dezron has established himself as a musicianís musician, respected not only for his talent but also for his dedication to the authenticity of the music.
