PUNCH, STING, RIFF!!…Nope…this isn’t an episode of vintage Batman! These are the horned wonders of The Grace Project. We were treated to a couple different squads of horn players…one an experienced studio quartet (Tim Perdue – trumpet, James Seitz – tenor sax, Christopher Burge – alto sax, and Christopher Cromley – trombone), and the other a group of eager new graduates of Capital University in Columbus (Dave Cary – alto sax, Ben Sherburne – tenor sax, Matt Smith – trombone and Bryan Bolyard – trumpet). Along with some sweet oboe from Dan Ripple, these guys added a great deal of energy to some of the funkier tunes on the album.
