THE FAMILY

a4270127758_10 (1)

This short-lived all-star assemblage of European talent only released one LP, and this is it! A large group that wears its size lightly, there is a lot of space for solos and smaller group work, while also allowing for some tremendously beautiful, all-in crescendos. And don’t let the “workshop” of the title lead you astray: this is a band with a full understanding of the repertoire, and complete command of the material. Come join The Family!
