George W. Carrol of The Musician's Ombudsman is one of the first to review this new record saying This CD project is a true successful experiment in the art of re-composing the composition. The harmonic and rhythmic deception in both 'Satin Doll' and 'Chelsea Bridge' is in a word fortuitous and striking... The Strayhorn Project comes to fruition very deliberately and impressively with exciting digressions into the world of harmony and melody. I must address as well the musical dialogue between these fine players creating an overall tonal scheme of both subtlety and imagination."
On December 14th, the group will have their debut appearance in celebration of the digital release at the famed Blues Alley Jazz Club in Washington, D.C. For details, tickets, music, pictures and to learn more about Braden-Rapp: The Strayhorn Project, please visit bradenrapp.com
