Ethnic Jazz was formed in 2003 by Jason Uzl & Joe Rosinski, and both remain a big part of the band today. Veteran musicians Jack Beachly and Rich Benkowski were added to the group shortly after the band’s formation, and the most recent additions are Verne Maddie and Jimmy “K” Krzeszewski, who is now the leader of the band, and serves as the MC. You’ll find Jimmy’s vocals on 12 of the tracks on this recording.
