Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Jazz Surge, “Within Us” is to be released on Sept. 17th 2021!!

Almost everyone that contributed to 2017’s “Whispers on the Wind” (nominated for 4 Grammys!) is back. But this year we’re also joined by the wonderful saxophonist, Steve Wilson, as well as Warren Wolf on vibes!!
