A Sunday Lakeside
Jay Flippin, piano, a 2006 Governors Awards in the Arts Artist Award and Gordon Towell, saxophones, perform intimate jazz duets in a relaxed atmosphere. Their performances are comprised from a repertoire of standards, jazz standards, and original songs. All of the selections emphasize strong melodies and interesting harmonies. The performers are experienced jazz practitioners as well as teachers who can enlighten your audience about the art form of jazz and the distinct nature of its performance. They offer concerts and educational packages for any size audience.

"These guys swing and take challenges commensurate with their considerable talent. Recommended."

—Dave Nathan, 2002, All Music Guide

"Both players display comfortable control of their instruments and of their material. And once again, Towell is the almost too serene one, while Flippin plays the extrovert."

—David Franklin, 2001, Jazz Times
