About the artists:
Mike Stern is regarded as one of the true guitar greats to a generation of contemporary jazz guitar aficionados. Stern made his mark with Miles Davis in the early 1980s before launching his solo career in 1985. Since then he has released 17 recordings as a leader, six of which were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards.
Drummer Richie Morales, a native of New York City, is a versatile player who has performed and recorded with a wide range of contemporary artists. He also leads his own group performing a mixture of Jazz standards and original music. Richie has been a member of the jazz faculty at Purchase College Conservatory of Music SUNY since 2000.
Bassist Teymur Phell moved to New York in 2011 and has since built a reputation as a vibrant and virtuous player. Born in Azerbaijan to a family of professional musicians — his grandmother Elmira Nazirova was a celebrated classical pianist — Teymur studied classical bass at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and toured with Palestinian singer Amal Murkus.
