Corcoran Holt – Bass Stacy Dillard – Tenor and Soprano Sax Josh Evans – Trumpet Benito Gonzalez – Piano McClenty Hunter – Drums As a keeper of the rhythm, Corcoran began his study of upright bass at the age of 10 with the renowned DC Youth Orchestra (DCYOP). Soon he learned that his great- grandfather, with whom he shares a birthday, was a bass player who grew up in High Point, NC and lived next door to a very young John Coltrane. Legend has it that he gave Trane music lessons. Corcoran feels called to the bass and his work is about honoring the ancestors.
