Great Sounds from Local Legends
Johnny and Doug are well-known in Ithaca (and far beyond) for their original music, and fresh approaches to the jazz and swing classics. I never get tired of hearing their superb sounds -- horns and vocals -- played with heart and soul. The new album == I Have Dreamed == is another gem that reminds you of the masters of these genres, and at the same time is thoroughly unique.
