Béla Meinberg has harmonic and melodic taste and sensitivity. Jordan Dinsdale is a subtle and swinging drummer who has studied the lineage of the rhythmic greats. Ori Jacobson brings beautiful sound, presence and storytelling to the table. I am so pleased to have met each of these remarkable young musicians - We play interpretations of music that we all love, including some of my own compositions. In the words of my mentor Al Foster, we strive to bring the audience 'Love, Peace, and Jazz.'"
