This special live recording at WHUS studios features some of Hartford's finest young musicians. Recent graduate of University of Hartford's Hartt School of Music, Dane Scozzari leads the band on the drums with several of his arrangements and compositions. Another Hartt graduate from the class of '10 is accomplished pianist Matt DeChamplain demonstrating his killer chops on the keys. Sophomore at Hartt, Matt Dwonszyk plays well beyond his years on the double bass, really holding down the bottom. Just graduating from the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts are Lomar Brown (entering his freshman year at Berklee College of Music) on alto sax and brother Keaon Brown (will be attending Temple University) on trumpet.
Dangerous Dane and the Human Race performs excerpts from 2010: Profile of Humanity as well as other jazz classics. The performance is archived here (mp3), or listen via the flashplayer below.
