Doug Brown and Michelle DuVall are rapidly gaining a reputation in the Midwest for playing some of the most swinging and refined jazz around. DuVall has been called “a cross between Ella Fitzgerald and Bernadette Peters” by Madison Newspapers’ Rhythm, and “a vocalist who can take a standard and make it shine” by Isthmus. Isthmus names guitarist Brown “one of the best pickers in the Midwest” and his work with numerous artists and bands has led to performances at major music festivals in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
