Matt Pavolka Horns Band

When bassist Matt Pavolka had a gig and his keyboard and guitar players couldn’t make it, he hired a bunch of horn players… and the Horns Band was born. With Mark Ferber - drums, Jacob Garchik - trombone, and Loren Stillman - alto. This band features Pavolka’s great arrangement of his original music; and the arrangements remind me of Booker Little at times-really great writing and amazing players!  We recorded the group in June 2013 for a Fresh Sound Records release in June 2014, the record is self titled "The Horns Band".  Here's a link to the CD http://www.freshsoundrecords.com/matt-pavolka/6153-the-horns-band.html 

We play in NYC frequently at Smalls, Cornelia Street Cafe, Korzo and other spots, Matt has more than enough material for another CD so we'll head back to the studio soon.
