Lucy was featured on Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner, Vol. 1 album and has been touring with them for many years. Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League and keyboardist/arranger Henry Hey (David Bowie, Forq) co-produced her fourth solo album Til They Bang on The Door, which was released on GroundUP/Verve/Universal in 2016.In the summer/fall of 2017, she debuted her material with new arrangements from her albums à la Big Band style, performing at jazz festivals in Denmark and Holland.

With Jane's new album, The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald—the first to be released on her own Emerald City Records—the Long Island native has surprised even herself with her artistic leap. On this new offering, Monheit pays joyous tribute to Ella while sharing a definitive portrait of herself, guided by her producer, arranger, and trumpet great, Nicholas Payton.

GRAMMY-nominated composer/arranger Dave Richards is excited to bring his 19-piece big band back to Upstairs at Vitello's. Dave earned both his BM in jazz arranging and his MM in jazz composition from the University of North Texas in Denton. In addition to the North Texas tradition, his music is influenced by R&B, funk, rock, and classical styles.
