Conrad Herwig

    Conrad Herwig is one of the leading trombonists on today’s Jazz scene, having begun in 1980 with the Clark Terry Big Band. A four-time Grammy nominee, he has recorded 24 albums as a leader and was twice voted #1 Jazz Trombone (TDWR) in the Downbeat International Jazz Critic's Poll. The Jazz Journalists Association has also nominated Herwig for “Trombonist of the Year” on numerous occasions.

Orrin Evans Trio

    For more than two decades, Orrin Evans has made an art form of the unexpected. With more than 25 albums to his credit without relying on the support of a major label, Evans has become the model of a fiercely independent artist who's made a habit of rattling the jazz world's confining cages.
