Edgewood Big Band

Is there a better way to celebrate releasing your first 7-inch than by assembling a 12-piece ensemble to play a selection of your compositions from the last three decades? That’s the plan, according to saxophonist Jeff Crompton, who’s leading the Edgewood Big Band, featuring current and itinerant members of the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra. Roger Ruzow and Jeff Crouch (trumpets), Peter Sloan (trombone), Bill Pritchard (tuba), Ben Davis and Bill Nittler (saxes), Rob Rushin (guitar), Ben Gettys and Chris Riggenbach (basses), Yaya Brown (percussion), and Blake Helton (drums) comprise the lineup for a skronking, wailing blowout.
