“Ken Peplowski is arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist”  Russell Davies, BBC2
Ken played his first pro gig when in elementary school.  After a year of college, Ken joined the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and, in 1984, Benny Goodman’s new band.
Peplowski recorded close to 20 albums as a leader.  He’s collaborated with greats like:  Mel Torme, Peggy Lee, George Shearing, Rosemary Clooney, Bill Charlap, and is blessed with a great sense of humor!

“Diego Figueiredo is one of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life…”  George Benson
Diego is a stunning new star on guitar!  Born in Franca, Brazil in 1980, he has released 23 CDs, and played in more than 60 countries around the world.  He’s also a composer, producer, arranger…  and you’ll be floored by his virtuosity and musical skills!
