News and Announcements
His influences as a pianist include Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Gene Harris, Count Basie, and Thelonious Monk. His small groups (such as the Solomon Douglas Trio) play a mixture of musical styles including blues, old-school swing, and groovy mainstream swinging jazz with tinges of bop and soul-jazz.
Alison Dreyfuss is a young vocalist from New Hampshire who has been making a big splash in the swing dance world over the past year. She has recently performed for swing dance and blues dance events in and New York, Boston, DC, Seattle, and Portland (Oregon). Her unique voice and her delightful sense of phrasing will remind some listeners of Billie Holiday and Blossom Dearie, without sounding like an imitation of anyone.
