Russ Johnson is a recent Midwest transplant after spending 23 years as an important member of New York City’s jazz community. He has 7 recordings as a leader or co-leader and more than 75 recordings as a sideman. Russ has performed in more than 40 countries across the globe.
Clay Schaub has been a professional jazz bassist since 2000. He worked for years in the New York City jazz scene as a skilled sideman, performing regularly with Greg Ruggiero, Michael Kanan, Gregory Tardy, Bob Mover, Frank Morgan, and Joe Bonner, to name a few.
