Emily Asher's Garden Party
Emily Asher's Garden Party
Led by Asher's tenacious trombone and sweet vocals this versatile group from New York City's vibrant early jazz scene bring a hot and charming celebration of one of the first Great American singer-songwriters, Hoagy Carmichael. Classics like "Startdust," "Georgia On My Mind," Up A Lazy River" performed in a diverse variety of styles from Louis Armstrong's enchanting Hot Fives to the funky and soulful music of New Orleans brass bands. Emily Asher's Garden Party is a Brooklyn based band with a strong Northwest heart including Seattle natives Asher, drummer Jay Lepley and trumpeter Mike Davis.

"Emily Asher's Garden Party is a deliberately prosaic name deviously calculated to describe a very exciting combo... In traditional jazz, the trombone comes closest to the human voice, although up to now it's rarely been cast as a distinctly female voice... Ms. Asher plays with both grit and grace." - Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
