Dawning and DaylightCharmin and Shapira
Dawning and Daylight

In our debut collaborative effort "Pure Imagination" we showcased our unique musical insight into the Great American Songbook. With this release, it is immediately evident that our group has expanded its musical boundaries and truly come into its own. We are joined by four outstanding veterans of the Twin Cities jazz scene: Nathan Norman on drums, Tom Lewis on bass, Paul Harper on tenor saxophone and Dave Schmalenberger on congas. The result is a modern approach to classic standards and jazz tunes alike.
