Project Description

Drummer Sonny Carreño and guitarist Danny Dean met in 2013 on a recording session for an album of sacred music called Walk in Peace. They realized they shared an interest in jazz, formed a quartet right away, and began performing throughout the area. The group has since earned spots at Elkhart Jazz Festival for five straight years, performed for WNIT’s Experience Michiana and the home-grown-talent series at Merriman’s Playhouse in South Bend, hosted WVPE’s Fernwood Friday in Niles, and played countless other public and private shows over its nine years together. Repertoire is midcentury jazz standards with an irreverent edge, along with a few modern pieces and reinterpreted hymns.
