Featuring the sound of the Hammond B-3 organ, the Soul/Jazz Quintet continues to groove audiences as they have since 1996. Their first recording (the Soul/Jazz Quintet) received airplay on jazz stations across the US, and the track Fly Me To The Moon was included on a EMI-Capitol release with such artists as Nancy Wilson, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. Their newest recording (Soul Rendezvous) is playing on forty CMJ stations as well as Bay Area favorites KCSM, KSJC and KKUP.
The Soul/Jazz Quintet features the commanding vocals of Mr. Nate Pruitt, one of the original Five Satins (In the Still of the Night), and renowned scat artist. Steve Czarnecki on organ leads the group and writes and arranges the majority of its material. He has several CDs to his name on the PMP label (When I Dream of You, Sunnyside Up) and was a founding member of the popular Bay Area group Spang-a-Lang. Rounding out the line-up is the terrific tenor sax of Bob Johnson, Latin jazz expert Dan Sabanovich on drums and the soulful styling of Mike Renwick on guitar.
