The Art Felluca Group is a 6-horn, 4-piece rhythm section rooted in the modern mainstream of jazz. The group's instrumentation is 2 trumpets, alto/soprano sax, tenor sax, trombone, bari sax, guitar, piano, bass and drums.



Currently

The group released its debut album Inward in January 2011, featuring six of Art's compositions and his arrangments of Dave Brubeck's "Strange Meadow Lark" and Wayne Shorter's "Fee Fi Fo Fum."


Jazz writer Scott Yanow says, "Inward is a very impressive debut, showing that Art Felluca is one of the top up-and-coming arranger-composers in jazz. The music rewards repeated listenings."
