Karen Stachel has three released albums of her own. She works as a professional jazz and classical flutist in NYC and before moving  New York and the Bay Area.  She can be heard on several movie soundtrack and commercials.  She is a member of the  Wallace Roney Orchestra and a regular flutist/piccoloist with the New Amsterdam Symphony. 

The short list of who David Solomon has worked with is: Al Jarreau, Chubby Checker, Bobby Caldwell, Bette Middler, Neil Sedaka, Tito Puente Jr. and Broadway Shows: Grease, On Your Feet, In The Heights, Cats, Miss Saigon, and many more.

Gary Fisher, a long time friend of Norbert’s, performs extensively in the NYC area and can be heard on recordings with Ed Reed, Eddie Marshall, Carl Allen, Vincent Herring, and many others. Daniel Gonzalez has recorded and performed with Tom Harrell, Mark Murphy, Jesse Green, and Urbie Green.
