The Sandhill Cranes are a jazz ensemble that uses a standard, acoustic instrumental line-up to perform a variety of music from the jazz tradition including early jazz, classic jazz standards, jazz fusion, and contemporary jazz and also folk music and original music. The ensemble aims to bring a fresh perspective to jazz through improvisation that is influenced by present-day music. The group is lead by Neil Daily (tpt) and features Claire Kannapell (db), Lily Finnegan (perc), Dave Puchalsky (sx), and Anthony Utehs (g).
