Born and raised in Harlem, Annette St John stands out in a neighborhood of many show business notables. She grew up watching her mother and aunt perform as top dancers, and her uncle play the drums, which would inform her musical style--equal parts jazz, blues, standards, and gospel. She has appeared all over Manhattan, including at the Apollo, the Blue Note, The Cotton Club, the Village Vanguard, Sugar Bar, and Tavern on the Green, and has sung back-ups for Lou Donaldson, George Benson, Al B Sure, and Beverly Crosby. In recent years she has led her own groups at Smoke, the Red Rooster, and on many performances for the Jazz Foundation of America. Annette always says, “It’s Not Work If You Love What You Do!”

Saxophonist Arthur Green has a deep, soulful tone. With roots in Virginia and then playing trumpet in the Navy Band, he has come into his own in New York City under the tutelage of King Curtis, Rodney Kendricks, and Barry Harris. In high demand for cover gigs, due to his searing tributes to Motown's Junior Walker, Arthur leads his own band The Green Machine, featuring an appealing blend of jazz, funk, blues and R&B that is all his own.
