Truth (Outside in Music – 2014) is the debut recording by THE Seth Weaver BIG BAND, and a fine debut it is. Leader/trombonist Weaver presents an eight-song program that includes five original pieces plus “Here’s That Rainy Day,” “On a Clear Day” and “It Could Happen to You.” Weaver adds nicely phrased vocals on three tracks, “Rainy Day,” “Clear Day” and his own “What If.” The band is staffed with an impressive collection of young New York City-based jazzers who execute Weaver’s well-conceived charts with precision and a consistent swing. There are terrific solo interludes by the likes of saxophonists Lukas Gabric and Sam Dillon, pianist Addison Frei and Weaver on trombone. It is good to know that there are still young musicians wiling to undertake dipping their toes into the wonderful world of big band jazz. (www.sethweavermusic.com)

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
