PLATINUM is a professional and versatile ensemble that speaks four musical languages. It's mother language is jazz, but the band also speaks soul, and pop, and rhythm and blues, all with a sophisticated, easy to enjoy, jazz accent! The sounds of Platinum are fluent with expertise, rich with nostalgia, and filled with style – Platinum's goal is to reach your soul with music you love.
Starting with a stylish emphasis on jazz and the familiar standards from the great American songbook, the group also performs many wonderful newer songs, standards-to-be, that enrich our lives today. Platinum is versatile – always adding new songs that fit within the concept of the group. Many of the best songs they play are the standards of the future – those performed by artists like Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Billy Joel, Carly Simon and James Taylor. And as always, while there are copious vocal numbers, there are always featured instrumentals in the play lists and this band is quite capable of getting "down and dirty."
The Platinum concept is available in several sizes of ensemble, starting with the basic Platinum Quartet, then adding horns for the excitement of a Quintet or Sextet. The Platinum Nonet provides a cool jazz overlay to the basic quartet, adding guitar, trumpet, trombone and two saxes, and is ideal for dancing or concerts. For the big events, the Platinum Jazz Orchestra awaits with 10 brass, 5 saxes added to the quartet, playing exciting music from the big band era plus contemporary arrangements bringing big bands into the 21st Century!
The musicians are professionals, soloists themselves, with years of experience performing with many of the most famous entertainers in the world. Listed in their résumés are recordings, television shows and live stage performances with such singers as Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Johnny Mathis, Lionel Ritchie, The Carpenters, Andy Williams, Barry Manilow, Ray Charles, Burt Bacharach, and many, many more down through the musical alphabet even to include Mannheim Steamroller, Chicago and Frank Zappa! One of the musicians has performed on the soundtracks of over 500 motion pictures. You hear and see the expertise and ease, developed through years of experience.
Platinum is quiet professionalism at work - knowing what to do, how to do it, and getting the job done with artistry.
