Both Simon and his son Tom, are big fans of Conte Candoli's playing. And throughout his career he teamed up with his older brother Pete. Pete was primarily a lead trumpeter, but a true jazz player in every sense of the word. Both trumpeters shared the love of jazz that Simon and Tom do. The band pays tribute to the many colaborations 'The Brothers Candoli' had. This is pure and simple jazz. The Devils music. Music that musicians understand and audiences enjoy. We both love playing standards from the great American songbook, so theres nothing too way out here, just great music!
