About

$2,799

50

This October, we spent a glorious few days at Meadowlark Studio recording some of our favorite jazz tunes with producer extraordinaire George Walker Petit. Why? To share that beloved music with all of you. Many of these arrangements are our own originals, never performed by other musical groups. 

Now we are entering the next stage of album production -- and we need your help! We invite you to invest in our album and our mission to bring jazz music to more people. 

Note: The projected expenses for this project are $5,000. We humbly request that our supporters help us raise $2500, and we will match the other $2500 to complete this project. 

Having fun in the recording studio.
