The New Standard, which we offer as a quintet, quartet or trio, honors the style of jazz standards with a modern approach by reworking the music of contemporary artists (such as Sting, Phoebe Snow, Roberta Flack) as well as revisioning the music of artists such as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald and other great jazz ladies.
The musicians include:
Layonne Holmes - Vocals
Gerald Carboy - Bass
Bob Himmelberger - Keyboards
David Anthony - Drums/Percussion
Tommy LaBella - Saxophones / Flute
