Pianist Jeff Lashway hails from Pittsburgh — While he has played, toured and recorded with several artists, he is best known for his tenure with jazz legend Maynard Ferguson. Jeff was Maynard's final pianist. On his first release, "Reunion," he is reunited with longtime friend Vinnie Colaiuta. This is a rare straight-ahead session for Vinnie. Also on board is the amazing vocalist Jimmy Hall, formerly the lead singer with Wet Willie. This is an incredibly accessible, swinging CD, with stellar performances by all the musicians, including Jim Rotondi, John Allred and Jeff Rupert.

As he declares in his latest album's opening number, I Have ...
Bria Skonberg: So is the Day
by Nicholas F. Mondello
It's a rare talent that can straddle--and dare request membership in--the trumpet artist continuum emanating from Louis Armstrong and progressing down through his Neo Orleans" progeny: Byron Stripling, Wynton Marsalis and Nicholas Payton (whose big band trumpet section Skonberg graces). However, with her bravura performance on So is the Day, Bria Skonberg confirms that she is ...
