This music trio has been on the jazz scene in the New Jersey area for several years and individual members have been on the NJ music scene for much longer. The group specializes in straight-ahead and bebop jazz, having devised its own unique arrangements of standards while still allowing its members to improvise freely. Strong musical style influences from artists such as: John Coltrane, Count Basie, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ray Barretto, Herb Ellis, Tito Puente, Lester Young, Ron Carter and others have led the group down a path of creative musical discovery.
The group was founded and is led by drummer Bill Noren and includes Bob Funesti on bass and Alex Bryant on guitar. They perform regularly at The Stonehouse in Warren, NJ, The Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ, The Old Riverhouse in Clinton, NJ, the Jazz in The Square series in Easton, PA and the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, PA, among other venues. They have also been invited to perform for The Seton Hall Law School, The Chubb Corporation and The Hunterdon Medical Center. Their past performances have been noted by the Newark Star Ledger and NJ's premier jazz station WBGO, 88.3 FM. This is their inaugural appearance at the intimate Jazz It Up @ Tony's Cafe event and they are looking forward to making it a regular stop.
The management and staff at Tony's Cafe strive to make sure that every visit to this unique cultural experience is better than the time before.
