moSTLy JAZZ is an ensemble of St. Louis musicians focusing on jazz and blues. The ensemble was formed by moSTLy TAP Music Director, Phillip Russo, to be a collaborative effort with the dancers of moSTLy TAP. Each musician plays in bands around the city, varying in genres. Each brings personality and polished skill as well as professionalism, humility, & tact. The beauty of this project is that it is reminiscent of what tap dancing was at it's dawning; musicians and dancers together, calling a tune & sharing the beauty of dance & music of any feel , but mostly jazz!
