With an original voice and a strong connection to the lineage of jazz guitar, Sam Raderman has established himself as a popular bandleader and freelance musician. Sam’s style is equal parts bebop, blues and swing.
He performs frequently in many of New York’s top jazz venues including Jazz At Lincoln Center, Smalls, Smoke, Joe’s Pub, Swing 46, and the Blue Note. He has also appeared on the CBS Morning Show, A&E and the Turner Classic Movies Cruise.
Sam is proud to have worked with Ralph Lalama, The George Gee Swing Orchestra, The Hot Sardines, Ed Cherry, Randy Johnston, Mike Sailors, Jason Prover and many other outstanding artists and ensembles.
As a sideman, he has been featured on numerous recordings, and recently released his debut album entitled, “With Great Pleasure”.
Hailed as “a great writer and a terrific trumpet player” by legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach, and said by renowned jazz artist Dave Douglas to be “one of the finest young trumpeters”, Tony Glausi has established his voice as an international award-winning trumpeter, keyboardist, composer, and producer in New York City.
Among other accolades, Tony won first prize in the 2017 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Solo Competition, first prize in the jazz division of the 2017 ITG International Trumpet Competition, and first prize in the jazz division of the 2014 National Trumpet Competition. Tony has been recognized in two separate issues of Downbeat Jazz & Blues Magazine for outstanding improvised solos and compositions. He was the sole recipient of the 2016-17 Laurie Frink Career Grant, an award given every other year to a young brass player in honor of Laurie’s legacy as an incomparably inspiring pedagogue, mentor, and friend. Tony has also had the unique privilege of engaging in private studies with Wynton Marsalis, one of his greatest heroes and influences.
Playing over one hundred dates around the world last year and having recorded on more than two dozen albums (with already six of his own), Tony maintains a full schedule as an active performer and recording artist on the trumpet, flugelhorn, and keyboards. As a composer and arranger, Tony draws inspiration from his earliest musical influences—including Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Earth Wind & Fire—while also channeling current trends in the music industry. He has written for nearly every type of ensemble, and his works have been commissioned on over a dozen occasions to be performed and recorded by numerous world-class musicians.
