The ensemble is Nate Giroux on tenor saxophone, Colin Banks on trombone, Henry Heinitsh on guitar, Oscar Williams on piano, Daniel Duke on bass, and Anthony Benson on drums.
The group performed six songs including Miller's "Elation" and Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You," and were interviewed between songs by host Michael Bourne.
