The opening group included:
Derek Nellis-trumpet, Eric Rasmussen-sax, Keith Kelly-sax, Chris Stover-trombone, Zach Gillespie-piano, Ben Hedquist-bass, Connor Sample-drums
After a brief intermission, the closing septet featured:
Mary Petrich-sax, Adam Roberts-sax, Chaz Martineau-sax, Matt Lennex-trombone, Jeff Libman-guitar, Ben Hedquist-bass, Connor Sample-drums
Each half of the event included the premiere of six new jazz compositions, written by NCC performers, specifically for the septet with which they play.
