The Posey Quintet is a piano-driven homage to swing-era music and dance culture. The PQ features rhythm-centric arrangements of hot jazz and swing obscurities from the turn of the century through the late 1940's. The ensemble draws inspiration from the 'piano powerhouses' of the 20's - 40's: Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Earl Hines, and Teddy Wilson. This small jazz combo is led by Asheville’s own stride pianist, James Posedel.
