"Puttin' On The Ritz is a collection of tunes that reflects the intimacy and
rapport the trio developed by playing together frequently. We evolved ways
to present some of our favorite songs within the context of interesting
arrangements. Playing with Joel and Stephen is really fun. Both are
extremely supportive team players. Their ability to serve the music first
rather than one's own ego makes that possible. We all love a variety of
styles throughout the history of music right up to what is contemporary.
Combining that sense of history with a good groove, swing, dynamics,
compositional improvisations, and adventurous harmonic sensibilities are
trademarks of the group."
- Lynn Seaton

Lynn has participated in over 100 recording sessions, including: the Grammy
Award winning "Diane Schuur and The Count Basie Orchestra" and the Grammy
nominated "Woody Herman 50th Anniversary."
