These live videos give you a taste of how 'Emergence' sounds. Taken from rough videos of our session on May 28, 2020, as well as a few subsequent sessions over June & July 2020, this will give you an idea of what it was like to be in the studio with amazing musicians, working on amazing music. Enjoy, and download the complete, final master recording today--there's a lot of "ear candy" here to enhance your contemporary jazz collection!
A front-row view of the DJO sold-out 2018 Holiday show, with excerpts from about ten of the songs played there. Donna leads the band on vocals, John leads the bone section. Amazing performers, including Rich Chiaraluce & Larry Campbell on alto sax, Eric McGregor on Tenor, a killer trumpet section led by Scott Handler and Jon-Paul Frappier, and a rhythm section with Ron Jolly on piano, Dave Rohlf on drums, Tom Virtue on bass, Tim Hurley on guitar.
If you want to get a taste of our music, this video includes 1-2 minute excerpts from each of the different songs on our latest CD, 'You & I', with pictures from our recording session and other images (okay, you will be completely sick of them by the time this is done) so you can get to know us!
Check The beautiful Donna DeVine croons on the deck of the Azamara Quest with an international collection of musicians, including John Hines on trombone, as the ship approached Dubrovnik, Croatia on June 13, 2012. Not the best sound quality, and completely unmixed, so forgive us if it is a bit raw.
The Ultraphonic Jazz Orchestra, playing live at the Lone Tree Arts Center, on Friday, June 24, 2016. Featuring John Akal on the drums, Ron Wright-sax, and John Hines-trombone jazz. John Hines' trombone solo starts at 4:38 . The Buddy Rich band arrangement-despite a couple of "live moments," it's smoking hot, and John Akal's playing will remind you of Buddy himself. Big band is alive and well in Denver!
John Hines playing trombone jazz with an international collection of musicians on board the Azamara Quest outside Dubrovnik, Croatia on June 13, 2012. Jamming (with mediocre sound) to 'A Bittadose' from the Art Blakey library.
