The Diva Jazz Orchestra is back with a new CD, DIVA + The Boys, on Pittsburgh’s MCG Jazz Label. The “Boys” are monsters. Five male soloists recorded with the all-women orchestra-clarinetist Ken Peplowski, Maurice Hines, Brazilian trumpeter Claudio Roditi, guitarist Marty Ashby, and trombonist/arranger Jay Ashby. The DIVA Jazz Orchestra is beyond honored to be part of this extraordinary recording celebrating 30 years of MCG Jazz. It was a genuine thrill to perform with jazz greats Claudio Roditi, Ken Peplowski, Jay Ashby and the magnificent Marty Ashby. The music is original, fresh and exciting, and features the boys and DIVA members with equal fire, finesse and swing!
