Larry McKenna, John Swana & the Tim Brey Trio

with John Swana and Tim Brey

One of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players, Larry McKenna has just released “Larry McKenna From All Sides,” a new CD of original instrumental and vocal compositions and several jazz standards, supported in part by a Subito Grant from the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Composers Forum.

John Swana

John was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, and began studying trumpet at the age of 11. He was drawn to jazz at the age of 17 after hearing Dizzy Gillespie, and the interest developed into a passion while he was in collage, where he began transcribing the solos of Freddie Hubbard, Clifford Brown, Miles Davis, and Tom Harrell.

Tim Brey

Tim Brey is an amazing pianist and an adjunct at Temple University
