Gene Perla and Scott Neumann will be in Europe during the summer of 2006, and they would like to play with you.
Their available dates are from July 16 through August 10 for concert and club performances, recordings, clinics, workshops, private lessons, consultations and/or other musical, recording techniques and music business collaborations.
This rhythm section has been playing together in various ensembles for over three years in many styles of music. They are experienced educators, and currently hold positions at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania teaching music business, recording techniques and private lessons on drums, bass and keyboards.
Recently, they played a Jazz Opera written and conducted by George Gruntz featuring a big band of top New York musicians and singers. The Magic of a Flute was performed at the beautiful Zollener Performance Center located at Lehigh University (Feb '06).
Gene Perla has performed and/or recorded with many great musicians including Elvin Jones, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Stan Getz, Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Big Band, Sonny Rollins, Stone Alliance and others. Equally at home on upright or electric bass, he likes to play all types of music and has found in Scott Neumann a soul brother who feels equally comfortable in playing jazz, Latin, pop, rock, funk and free.
Scott Neumann has a rich history of music experiences including the Woody Herman Orchestra, the Jazz Composers Collective, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Maria Schneider Orchestra and many important jazz musicians such as Eddie Gomez, David Liebman, Chris Potter and Joshua Redman.
