About Darrell Grant
Darrell Grant has built an international reputation as a stellar pianist, skilled composer and committed educator. Since being introduced to international audiences in 1988 as the pianist in vocalist Betty Carter's trio, Grant has performed extensively both as a sideman with such jazz luminaries as Betty Carter, Tony Williams, and Roy Haynes, and as a bandleader and solo artist throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Grant’s 1994 debut Black Art was selected as one of the year's top ten jazz CD's by the New York Times, and his six albums as a leader have received both critical acclaim and topped jazz radio charts. Grant is an Associate Professor at Portland State University where he also directs the Leroy Vinnegar Jazz Institute.

About Dan Gildea
Incontestably the finest jazz artist ever to come from Vida Oregon, Dan Gildea is well-known as one of the most in-demand and versatile guitarists in the Northwest. Combining the blistering jazz chops of a Wes Montgomery with the bluesy soul Robert Cray he plays and records with well-known Northwest artists ranging from pop singer/songwriter Stephanie Schneiderman, jazz singer/composer Mary Kadderly, land legendary jazz drummer Mel Brown, to young B-3 master Dave Fleschner, the ensemble Rocktet, and his own trio. A veteran of New York City’s“Downtown” progressive jazz scene, while studying for a degree at New York’s City College Gildea led a trio playing club dates up and down the East Coast, and most famously, co-founded the cutting-edge band The Grassy Knoll Project with a young soon-to-be giant of the jazz bass named John Benitez.

About Dennis Caiazza
Dennis Caiazza has gone coast to coast in a 20 year career as a first-call bassist, vocalist and band leader. Hailing from Rochester, NY, he was a regular with the Gap Mangione Jazz Trio and Big Band, as well as jazz greats Clark Terry, Eddie Daniels and Marian McPartland. In1992 Dennis moved to Atlanta, where his playing and personal singing style kept him in great demand for recording sessions, orchestra work and club dates. In 1998 he formed "Swing Factory," an eight-piece swing band that became a hit on the jazz and swing circuit and recorded two popular CD's. Since relocating to Portland, Oregon in 2004, Dennis is making his mark on the west coast.
