During the last 5 years, The Relay has been honing an intimate understanding of what makes their ensemble and audience come alive. In 2021, Grammy-nominated artists Dan Pratt and Michael Eckroth formed a band to leverage this chemistry and called it The Relay. The band's first recording features primarily original compositions that go straight to the beating heart and the tapping foot of any fan of serious jazz. If you're looking for compositions with infectious rhythm, memorable melodies, and swirling improvisation with self-assured execution, you want to catch The Relay at Vic's Jazz loft. "The Relay" will release on Same Island Music in April 2022, and the quartet will support this release on the road.
