In addition to compositions by Powell and Gordon, a special focus will be paid to the contributions of prominent sidemen from this time and place, people like Kenny Clarke, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pederson, Kenny Drew, and Pierre Michelot.  These nights will be filled with swinging, driving hard bop, with a few select ballads (always a staple for Dexter), to provide cool moments of counterpoint.

Joining Jeremy on stage for this residency series is: Derek Banach (trumpet), Dave Hanson (piano), Mark Simon (bass), Todd Reid (drums*), Mike Marlier (drums on 3/22).
