Rob Wilkerson, our stellar alto man, is leaving New York. This will be the last chance to catch him with Schapiro17 for some time. Come help us send him off in style. Personally, I have only deep gratitude for the contribution Rob has made with his sound, his leadership, and his approach to music and life.

- Jon Schapiro

Human Qualities REVIEWS

"Colorful, swinging, original jazz."

DICK METCALF, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

 

"Schapiro’s writing really IS innovative. He sounds like no one else while still leaning on certain established jazz forms."

LYNN RENÉE BAYLEY, Art Music Lounge

 

"A new set that hits it out of the park."

CHRIS SPECTOR, Midwest Record

 

"This is a big band album that blends both beauty and modern jazz into a refreshing, musical experience."

DEE DEE MCNEIL, Musical Memoirs
