Rooted firmly in the tradition of big band jazz, but looking toward the future of large ensemble jazz, the Dave Slonaker Big Band performs original compositions and arrangements by Dave Slonaker, featuring a virtual all-star big band of Los Angeles jazz and studio musicians.

"Intrada" is the debut album of the Dave Slonaker Big Band available on Origin Records.
