Adrian Cunningham: Professor Cunningham and His Old School - Swing In Out (ARBORS RECORDS February 9, 2018)

This album is a fabulous example of highly dance-able and strikingly beautiful swing Jazz.

Adrian ''Professor'' Cunningham on clarinet, tenor sax, flute, & vocals; Jon Challoner on trumpet; Dani Alonso on trombone; John Merrill on guitar; Alberto Pibiri on piano; Jim Robertson on bass; Paul Wells on drums.

Adrian Cunningham is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and world traveller. Originally from Sydney Australia and now based in New York, he is proving to be one of his country's top exports. With fluent command of the saxophones, clarinet, and flute, he is one of the finest multi-instrumentalists in Jazz.

When he is not busy performing in NYC with some of its finest players, he is touring the world playing jazz festivals and swing events.

In 2013 Cunningham formed a tradtional/New Orleans style outfit called Professor Cunningham and His Old School, deeply rooted in the Jazz tradition and has fast become one of the top bands in the international Swing scene, having performed at Snowball (Stockholm), SLOX (California), BABBLE (NYC), CPH:LX (Copenhagen) and Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
