"With a resume that boasts sessions and tours with the likes of Chick Corea to Eric Clapton to Steely Dan to Paul McCartney to James Taylor to Paul Simon to you-name them, Steve Gadd has put his indelible stamp on rock, jazz, blues, fusion and pop. If there's a form of music he hasn't played, chances are it hasn't yet been invented." -MusicRadar.com

Steve Gadd is one of the most sought-after studio musicians, in the world. Regarded as one the most influential drummers in contemporary music, Gadd can play anything, easily bridging different musical styles. His feel, technique, and musicality on such tunes as Paul Simon's "Fifty Ways", Steely Dan's "Aja", and Chick Corea's "Nite Sprite" were so awe-inspiring and his concepts so innovative that they instantly assured his special position in the history of the percussive arts.

Michael Landau is a prolific session guitarist who has played on a large number of albums since the early 1980s with artists as varied as Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Helen Watson, Richard Marx, Steve Perry, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis to name a few. In addition to his session work, Landau has also fronted several bands including Raging Honkies and Burning Water. Michael is also leader of the Michael Landau Group.

Jimmy Johnson is an American bass guitarist best known for his work with James Taylor, Allan Holdsworth, Lee Ritenour and Flim & the BB's. Raised in a rich musical environment, his father was a 47-year member of the Minnesota Orchestra's bass section, his mother a piano teacher and accompanist, and his brother Gordon, also a professional bassist. In 1976, Johnson worked with Alembic and GHS to create one of the first 5-string bass guitars with a low B string.

Trumpeter and flugelhornist Walt Fowler moved to Los Angeles in the fall of 1975 and formed a band with his brothers known as "The Fowler Brothers Band." In 1976, he recorded with George Duke on the "From Me To You" album, and numerous Johnny "Guitar" Watson albums. He toured with Flo & Eddie, Ray Charles, Buddy Rich's Big Band, and Frank Zappa. Walt is also featured on a massive amount of major motion picture soundtracks over the past few decades, including; Man of Steel, Inception, The Dark Knight, X-Men, Black Hawk Down, & Pirates of the Caribbean.

Kevin Hays is widely considered to be amongst the most imaginative and prolific jazz pianists of his generation with 15 releases as leader, and over 60 appearances on recordings including collaborations with Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter and Bill Stewart. In addition to leading his own trio and other special projects, he has toured with many jazz luminaries including John Scofield, Roy Haynes, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, among others.

Kat Edmonson

Tue, Feb 25 - Wed, Feb 26

On her upcoming 2020 recording "Dreamers Do" jazz vocalist Kat Edmondson explores the shared human struggle around daring to dream and it illuminates a range of emotional and psychological consequences that can happen along the way. A question gets raised in Kat’s vulnerable original, “Too Late to Dream”: “Are the messages we receive as children about following our dreams relevant through adult life?” The album is a mix of Edmonson’s original songs and re-imagined Disney songs from the mid-twentieth century and takes place over the course of one, sleepless night.

Regina Belle

Thu, Feb 27 - Sun, Mar 1

Four-time GRAMMY®-winning R&B/Pop songstress Regina Belle is a different story. Even as the New Jersey native rode high in the urban charts throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s with such urban classics as “Baby Come to Me,” “Make It Like It Was” and “What Goes Around,” faith, churchgoing, and gospel music remained at the very core of her life in the spotlight.
