Artist: Sherrie Maricle & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra
Description: Recorded live by MCG Jazz™ at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild™, Pittsburgh, PA, March 10 and 11, 2017.
The DIVA Jazz Orchestra is beyond honored to be part of this extraordinary recording celebrating 30 years of MCG Jazz. It was a genuine thrill to perform with jazz greats Claudio Roditi, Ken Peplowski, Jay Ashby and the magnificent Marty Ashby. The music is original, fresh and exciting, and features “the boys” and DIVA members with equal fire, finesse and swing! The DIVA Jazz Orchestra has been part of the MCG for 25+ years and we hold the position with great reverence. Heartfelt thank you to Marty, Renee and the entire MCG team; all of the incredible players, soloists, composers, arrangers, and DIVA founder, Stanley Kay, who brought us all together.
