Mark Shilansky and his quartet play Latin-influenced jazz with lots of fun new chords added to jazz standards, and original tunes that are complex yet catchy, all served up with Shilansky's virtuosic piano playing and soulful singing. Special guest singers (Alison Wedding, David Thorne Scott, and Yumiko Matsuoka) will help render tunes from Shilansky's latest release, Join the Club, and some of Shilansky's vocal jazz arrangements, including an original Christmas tune. With Dino Govoni, sax; Keala Kaumeheiwa, bass; and Mark Walker, drums.
