AB5 is a jazz quintet that plays America’s Songbook. Its mission is to keep alive many of our most beloved songs and jazz standards, while incorporating elements including swing, latin, fusion, and ballad. Most importantly, there is a synergy with the members that cannot be denied. AB5 is led by saxophonist Artie Bakopolus who brought on board keyboardist Dennis Cecere, bassist John Doherty, drummer Jody Bregler, and guitarist Fred Woodard. These bandmates have played together for many years in various arrangements but all agree this group swings the most!
