Featuring a mix of high powered instrumentals spotlighting great soloists, powerful ensemble work, and exciting vocal performances, Hard Drive includes charts ranging from swing, to straight ahead jazz, to rock—from up-tempo 'burners' to touching ballads. Included arrangements are from the iconic bands of Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Stan Kenton, Tom Kubis and Gordon Goodwin. Also spotlighted are unique compositions, arrangements and adaptations from the band’s lead alto sax player and librarian, Scott Tringali.
The band re-recorded a selection of the tracks off their album Hard Drive in 2016 in order to feature lead vocalist Marina Evans, whose strong, sultry vocals and impeccable timing bring new life to the old standards of the American songbook.
