Making Lunch

Ken Schaphorst Big Band

The band’s 1990 debut features the cream of the late ’80’s Boston jazz scene; many of these musicians are now emerging onto the international scene, with Mercer Ellington, Bobby Previte, Don Byron, Henry Threadgill and on their own. A full plate of Schaphorst originals, plus his take on Oliver Nelson’s “Stolen Moments.”

“The most interesting and contemporary large-ensemble jazz to come out of Boston in recent years.”
Rich Cromonic, Boston Phoenix
