Kat Edmonson's most recent album, Old Fashioned Gal, was released in April 2018, with NPR Music's "Songs We Love" premiering the title track. The album follows her critically acclaimed 2014 release, The Big Picture, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers, #1 on Contemporary Jazz Chart and #2 on the Total Jazz Chart. No stranger to the Billboard charts, people are taking notice of her unique sound: her 2012 release, Way Down Low, was described by The New York Times as "fresh as a spring bouquet" while The Boston Globe's Steve Greenlee heralded it as "one of the greatest vocal albums I've ever heard."

Paul Taylor has been a groundbreaking force among the sax elite in the genre since his debut, but began an exhilarating upswing with Ladies' Choice (2007) - his first #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Albums Chart. Following that success, "Push To Start" from Prime Time (2011) topped the Smooth Jazz Songs chart and hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. After more than ten albums and thousands of charismatic performances worldwide, Paul still has his antenna up: ready to absorb & be inspired. Learn more about Paul.
