Tom Kirkland and Jeremy Glaser have been friends since 2007 but did not start performing together as a duo until 2014. Since that time they have made numerous public and private appearances in and near the Fox Valley area of Illinois. They usually perform standards as a vocal/piano duo augmented by Tom's bass trombone solos. This album, produced in fall and early winter 2016, is an artistic departure for them as they explored various styles and became a multi-piece group in the studio.
Tom was a music education major who switched to engineering and graduated college with a degree in industrial management. Most of his career has been spent in the industrial machinery business. His instruments are voice, all low brass and keyboards. He is a composer and arranger of both volume and variety.
