Buy "Dan Karlsberg 'Nati 6"

Inspired by Cincinnati jazz groups such as The Modern Jazz Disciples, and the Cohesion Jazz Ensemble, Dan Karlsberg assembled The ‘Nati 6. The band is made up of seasoned veterans on the jazz scene today, all of which are leaders of their own ensembles. The members of the band have also served as mentors to Mr. Karlsberg throughout his career, for which he is very grateful.

The Music on the album is a re-imagination of the classic jazz sextet instrumentation (trumpet, sax, trombone with rhythm section). There is a mix of original compositions, along with arrangements by Mr. Karlsberg of a diverse group of composers: Stephen Foster, Maurice Ravel, Miles Davis, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Personnel:

Dan Karlsberg - piano
Jim Anderson - bass
Art Gore - drums
Marc Fields - trombone
Brent Gallaher - tenor, alto, soprano sax
Kim Pensyl - trumpet and flugelhorn
