Former Oscar Peterson protege and long time pianist and musical director for Dizzy Gillespie, Mike Longo, performs with his stellar sextet! The band plays a fusion between Funk and Jazz, including Mike’s Hits from the 70s!

Pianist Mike Longo teaches a university Masters Class on jazz as he bridges the gap between be-bop and the contemporary era, bringing the best traditions forward while also adding new innovations in rhythm and structure. Oasis, on the CAP (Consolidated Artists Productions) label, exemplifies this blending of old and new.

Longo started his career with Cannonball Adderly, studied under Oscar Peterson, became the pianist and musical director in Dizzy Gillespie’s band (and played regularly with Dizzy for 22 years), authored nine books teaching music, and performed onstage with countless top jazzsters over the years (Miles Davis, Milt Jackson, Coleman Hawkins, Gene Krupa, Jimmy Witherspoon, Lee Konitz, Roy ‘Eldridge, James Moody, Buddy Rich and many others).

Enrico Granafei is among the top chromatic harmonica players in the world. Most recently he has perfected the art of playing a handsfree chromatic while playing the DB guitar (bass, rhythm and lead). A polyglot, he sings in several languages, most notably original compositions in Italian and his native dialect from Cosenza, Italy and Brazilian tunes in Portuguese. He also has a degree in classical guitar from the Conservatory of L’Aquila. Enrico performs throughout the world, but Trumpets is his home base.

Kristine Massari has been singing all her life, having begun to perform on stage at the age of three.  She has toured Europe several times with the Enrico Granafei Quartet and performed at venues and music festivals throughout Italy, Estonia, Finland and France.
