"This new Quintet epitomizes what JAZZ at the Pizzeria is all about—creative, accomplished players with deep roots in the modern jazz tradition."—Michael Lauretano
Five of Connecticut's top jazz musicians align in the Orgone Jazz Quintet playing swinging, straight-ahead jazz. Finesse players, exciting solos, and great new arrangements of classic tunes. Saxophonist Mike Leventhal (Basie Orchestra, Manhattan Transfer, Eartha Kitt) and trumpet-player Dan D'Onofrio have both played professionally for more than 30 years. Chris Morrison is a sought-after guitarist and college instructor. Henry Lugo is a popular local bass player (Maydie Myles, Noah Baerman). Bobby Leonard (Woody Herman, Dave Liebman, Randy Brecker) is one of the area's leading drummers.
