Jazz alto and soprano saxophonist extraordinaire Sharel Cassity stepped into the spotlight last month at the Van Dyck in Schenectady in support of her recently released CD, Manhattan Romance on Venus Records. Backing her for the stellar performance were stalwarts of the Greater Nippertown jazz scene Michael Benedict (drums), Mike Lawrence (bass) and Rob Lundquist (keyboards).

Cassity and Lawrence both played on Benedict’s most recent album, Circulation: The Music of Gary McFarland.
