Ecoffery's new band of pianist  David kikoski, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Ralph Peterson finds him in the company of musicians who are undisputedly among the best in the world on their respective instruments...both technically and creatively.

The band debuted on April of 2014 with a performance and live recording made at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City. In February of 2015 the band celebrates the release of that new recording "Wayne Escoffery Live at Smalls" with a week long engagement at world famous Village Vanguard.

Escoffery’s new band has a more acoustic sound than his previous, a change in direction influencing his writing and arranging for the ensemble. 

“Over the last few years, I’ve had a larger instrumentation and a much broader spectrum of sound color to work with, due to having both keyboard (Rachel Z or Adam Holzman) and piano. It’s inspiring now coming back to this more traditional quartet setting. I’m rediscovering things and bringing both new and old influences into the music"

James Pearson:-

Musical Director at Ronnie Scott’s and the owner of a ferocious piano technique coupled with a sense of musicality rarely heard, James Pearson is one of the most exciting musicians to have emerged from the U.K in the last 25 years. After working with him, the late jazz legend Sir John Dankworth declared: "James Pearson is an exceptionally gifted artist. His masterful playing makes him head and shoulders above the rest of his contemporaries. He shows signs of true greatness".

Sam Burgess:- 

Double Bass Despite only being in his early 30’s, already Sam is a stalwart of the UK jazz scene. As well as appearing on numerous film soundtracks such as 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and 'Hannibal'.
