Savoy In Color
Lush, sonorous blendings of melodic horns and swinging rhythms. Top NYC talent tied together into a musical unit of extraordinary cohesion by virtue of Ben Cockerham’s imaginative jazz compositions and arrangements. Originals are interspersed with standards, laced with stylings inspired by the incredible Gil Evans-Miles Davis collaborations of the 1950s & ’60s. Take a listen . . . Get lost in time . . . In these moments, The World You’re In Is Perfect.

The mission is simple: grooves and good times for everyone.
The New Benjamin Britton
New York folk-pop duo, The New Benjamin Britton, cleverly configured their group moniker by arranging their own names: Ben Cockerham sings lead and plays guitar and bass, and the classically trained percussionist Britton Matthews hits a variety of things, including marimba and vibraphone. Unabashedly positive, with a genuine, infectious enthusiasm for the music they’re making, The New Benjamin Britton make a refreshing change in a musical landscape where ‘angst’ seems the default setting. That’s the plan, and frankly, there’s much to be said for unadulterated feelgood pop, especially when it comes with a streak of originality.
