Description:
Adrian Cunningham, one of Australia«s finest jazz musicians has been based in NYC and playing regularly at some of New York«s finest clubs- Smalls, Birdland, 55 Bar, Fat Cat, the Apollo Theater, Dizzy«s (Lincoln Centre) and even a private event at the hallowed Village Vanguard.


World class trombonist Wycliffe Gordon joins Cunningham presenting a musical tribute to Neal Hefti. CunninghamÕs virtuosic gifts on saxophone, clarinet and flute never overshadow his expressiveness.
