On April 17, 2005, I was delighted to hear Teddy Charles perform with the Tony DiGregorio Trio (Tony DiGregorio, guitar; Tony Oblaney, bass; Keith Dorgan, drums) at DEKK in TrBeCa. The quartet swung compellingly through a variety of jazz standards on a lovely, warm afternoon in lower Manhattan. - Noel Cohen: Noel Cohen's Jazz History Website
The Following is a quote from a New York Times article dated March 27th, 1988 by John S. Wilson:
The Swing Now Trio, three versatile musicians who have been kindling memories of the Swing Era, including the big bands and the jitterbugs, every Wednesday night for more than a year at the North River Bar in Tribeca (145 Hudson Street), brought their music but not their dancers uptown to the garment district Thursday evening to play at Terranova, a restaurant at 18 West 38th Street.
Despite the limitations of its size, the trio occasionally manages to project the spirit of the Swing Era big bands by using various combinations of the seven instruments they play -piano and string bass (John DeCesare), guitar (Tony DiGregorio) and tenor and bass saxophone, flute and rums (Bryant DuPre)
