Don Braden and Mark Rapp's new CD, The Strayhorn Project, is climbing the charts and getting great reviews. 

"Tenor saxophone veteran Don Braden and trumpet up-and-comer Mark Rapp take a creative, freewheeling approach to Billy Strayhorn’s enchanting compositions here, with the accent on lively group interplay, rich textures, spiky rhythms, and some funky strutting…” – Review by Paul de Barros, May issue of DownBeat Magazine.

Personnel: Don Braden on saxophone and flute, Mark Rapp on trumpet, Grammy-nominated Gerald Clayton on piano (Gerald will have his Litchfield Jazz Fest debut on August 7th), Sachal Vasandani on vocals, Rene Hart on bass and Greg Gonzalez on drums.
