Al DeGregoris

After several years of writing songs for and performing with Long Island based contemporary jazz group Déjà Blue, keyboardist and composer Al DeGregoris took a major leap of faith in 2008 and set out to record his debut solo album Three Before Midnight. After receiving positive feedback on the title track from iconic keyboardist Jeff Lorber (one of DeGregoris’ chief influences) he released his first single and received significant terrestrial and internet airplay and gained fans worldwide.

Many independent artists would be content to move forward on that momentum and fan response alone, but DeGregoris ups the ante considerably on his latest album Times and Travels. Wanting to take his lively, introspective look at the places, experiences and people who have shaped his life over the years to the next level musically and production-wise, DeGregoris reached out to a handful of the genre’s most popular “A-listers” (whom he met in various settings) and sent them tracks he believed they would be perfect for on his new project. It’s a testament to the power of his grooves, melodies and stylistic diversity that guitarists Chieli Minucci and Chris Standring, saxophonists Jeff Kashiwa and Eric Marienthal and drummer Joel Rosenblatt (longtime member of Spyro Gyra, another of DeGregoris’ major inspirations) enthusiastically agreed to perform on the 11 track collection.

The Jazz Guild/ Gene Leone Sr.

Gene Leone Sr., performed throughout his childhood years as a competitive dancer achieving numerous awards including "Mr. Teen" by "Stars Of Tomorrow" on Broadway, Gene Leone Jr. set out to make his mark in the music world. During High School they added several more members which brought the number to six. They named the band "The Hip Six". The teens interpretations of old standards and Jazz improvisations were considered refreshing by their mature audiences and a novelty that was sought after by many venues.

The Jazz Guild,  The mission of the Guild is to encourage and support Jazz by providing a network for young people to share their common interest in music, "we believe this will encourage students to become proficient in music performance and also develop better friends in this process".

The teens interpretations of old standards and Jazz improvisations were considered refreshing by their mature audiences and a novelty that was sought after by many venues.

 However, the demands and commitments of High School and family life made it difficult to book gigs for the teenagers with all 6 members able to participate at the same time. So, Gene began reaching out to other young musicians to fill-in and replace members that couldn't make the gigs.
