The KM Project – Slices

SlicesThe KM Project is the brainchild of trumpet master Steve Madaio and flute wizard Tom Keenlyside. After meeting by chance in Palm Desert in 2010, they compared notes on their perspective careers and found they had many things in common…long and productive recording and performing careers, eclectic musical tastes and a deep love of playing music. After playing a few gigs together, they realized how closely their phrasing matched and how compatible their musical visions were.

It seemed obvious… record an album together. Deciding what to play was another matter. After throwing around a few ideas, the “Slices” concept popped out… warm-hearted jazzy takes on some classic tunes in the Great American pop songbook.

Steve and Tom have performed and recorded with some of the biggest artists around, such as Dizzy Gillespie, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Natalie Cole, Earth Wind and Fire, Bob Dylan, Diana Krall, Van Halen, Tom Jones, and many, many more. Slices presents some of the great music of the sixties in a modern musical setting, and still retains the exciting feeling of the originals.
