As a follow up to his Grammy-nominated "Convergence Zone," Phil Kelly brings together many of his friends from his days in Los Angeles for a hard-swinging look at his arrangements of standards such as "Jeannine," "Body & Soul," and Ellington's "Daydream," and originals including the haunting and lush title cut, "My Museum" featuring the vocals of Greta Matassa. Propelled by the drumming of Steve Houghton and lead players like Wayne Bergeron, Lanny Morgan, Andy Martin and Pete Christlieb, Kelly's crisp, modern take on the Big Band will inspire all lovers of the genre.
