Waltz Frisk 13:05


Chris Kelsey on straight alto saxophone; Jack DeSalvo, electric guitar; Lewis Porter, on Kimball electric combo organ and Crumar Roadrunner electric piano; Joe Gallant, six-string electric bass; Alan Lerner, drums are some of the most versatile and passionate musicians on the New York City creative music scene…1UP1DOWN’s music reflects the inclusive nature of the jazz we all grew up loving – a music that ruled everything in and nothing out, whilst maintaining the rhythmic thread connecting the music from Armstrong to Ornette. It’s all good. It’s all jazz.
