News

New recording: "Convergency" available on August 19  

Excited to announce that my new album: the Dave Slonaker Big Band “Convergency” will be released on August 19, 2022. 
Available on Origin Records, Origin 82851, and all streaming platforms.

The Dave Slonaker Big Band…contemporary in the best sense of the word, harmonically sophisticated yet always accessible thanks to an unswerving reliance on time-honored melodies and rhythms. In other words, this is big-band jazz that quickens the pulse, swings hard and enhances the tradition.”

— Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
