SnapDragon

SnapDragon's 2008 debut CD, “Stealing a Moment”, features ten original contemporary jazz songs that evoke comparisons from Joe Sample to Weather Report. Two tracks feature the guitar wizardry of guest artist Richard Smith. The title track of the CD broke the Top 100 in U.S. radio airplay (Mediabase Smooth Adult Contemporary chart). One of the album's songs, “Black Onyx,” was a featured Daily Download by the All About Jazz website. EchoSmoothJazz.com chose “Stealing a Moment” as it's featured CD for April 2008.

Sam Mims is SnapDragon's music director and keyboardist, Carl Stutevoss plays bass, and Steve Glaeser is on drums. Former band member Danny Fisk played saxophones on “Stealing a Moment.”
