Daryl Sherman has been a part of the New York City jazz scene since the mid-70s and she is one of the rare singing pianists equally talented in both roles. Sherman is a unique stylist with charm, quick wit , chemistry with her audiences and ability to make herself at home in any musical setting. From her early stints at Sinatra hangouts like Jilly’s, there’s hardly a jazz joint, supper club or hotel Daryl has missed. When Artie Shaw formed a new band after his retirement, Sherman was his chosen singer, calling her "a first rate singer–musician.” Highly praised for her knowledge and passion for the American Songbook, Daryl has recorded and performed many composer tributes including Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Jimmy McHugh and Johnny Mercer.

Warren Vaché is a supremely accomplished, versatile and rare performer. He has been astounding audiences worldwide for decades with his superb cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn styling’s. Through live performances and recordings, along with stage, screen, radio and television appearances, Warren conveys incredible warmth through his burnished tone and intelligent improvisations. He has performed and recorded with such luminaries as: Benny Goodman, Rosemary Clooney, Benny Carter, Hank Jones, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Ruby Braff and Bobby Short to name but a few. He can also be found in the company of such leading contemporaries as: Phil Woods, Jon Faddis, Terrell Stafford, Howard Alden, Jessie Davis, Alvin Queen, Brian Lemon, Tony Coe, Alan Barnes, Richard Wyands, Bill Charlap, Harry Allen, John Allred and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra...the list is a virtual "Who's who" in Jazz, spanning every style in the history of the music.

Guitarist James Chirillo has been privileged to work with many of the swing era’s recognized greats, including Benny Goodman, Buck Clayton, Benny Carter, Eddie Durham, Eddie Barefield, Earle Warren, Frank Wess, and Joe Wilder to name just a few, and as a charter member of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, he worked closely with musician/educators Gunther Schuller and David Baker. Today, his collaborations include appearing regularly with the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra directed by Wynton Marsalis, as well as work with such diverse artists as Paquito D’Rivera, Wycliffe Gordon and Michael Feinstein. He has been a participant on countless recordings – with Tony Bennett, Joe Lovano, Houston Person, Marcus Roberts, and Dick Hyman, on the soundtracks of Woody Allen’s Sweet and Lowdown, Everyone Says I Love You and also movies such as Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road and Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator.

For over 30 years, Boots Maleson has been one of the top in-demand bassists in New York City in nearly every genre of music.  He has worked with such jazz greats as Milt Jackson, Elvin Jones, Jaki Byard, Archie Shepp, Kenny Barron, Dexter Gordon, Stanley Cowell, Jack Wilson, and Benny Carter.  He has played in the Big Bands of Harry James, Jimmy Dorsey, Bob Alexander, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra.  He has performed for many years with jazz artist Ronny Whyte, Daryl Sherman, and Marlene Verplanck.
