Scott Rosenberg: IE

Scott Rosenberg: IE

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, reedist Scott Rosenberg relocated to Chicago a couple of years ago, and has been very active in promoting his music since. "IE" is an ambitious project for a 27-piece orchestra which focuses on Scott Rosenberg as a composer (as an instrumentalist, he is only featured on contrabass clarinet on the opening track).

Judy Roberts: Circle of Friends

Judy Roberts: Circle of Friends

Judy Roberts is a Chicago treasure. She plays great piano, has an innovative approach to singing and has the charisma that everyone enjoys and wishes they had some too. Judy's consistently draws listeners to her gigs; it seems that there is no end to Judy's energy. A friend of mine once told me that if Judy gets on a bus, the bus would fill with friends and fans!

Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Pianist Eddie Higgins has been in Florida for many years but a great deal of his career was spent in Chicago. He still returns, most every year, to play for those that he touched at London House and numerous other Chicago clubs. This album showcases the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, sans “Ipanema” and the other well-known hits. The point is that although Jobim composed hundreds of tunes, the masses only remember one or two of the hits and most musicians only a few more.
