Ehud Asherie, "a master of swing and stride" (The New Yorker), is a jazz pianist who integrates the venerable New York piano tradition into his inventive style. Born in Israel in 1979, Asherie lived in Italy for six years before his family moved to New York. Though he began playing piano as a child, his passion for jazz came later—with a Thelonious Monk cassette tape—and his first visit to Smalls Jazz club in Greenwich Village. Largely self-taught, or rather, “old-schooled,” Asherie learned the ropes at Smalls, spending the wee small hours of his early teens becoming a fixture of the late-night jam sessions. Mentored by the late Frank Hewitt, Asherie began to develop “his virtuosity and his ear for clean, crisp lines“ (The Star-Ledger). Hilary Gardner is a singer and writer residing in Brooklyn. Since her arrival in New York in 2003, she's sang with orchestras, big bands, small bands, a vocal jazz quartet, and a country band. She released her debut album in 2014. Ken Peplowski is a jazz clarinetist and tenor saxophonist that hails from Ohio, known primarily for playing in the swing music idiom.
