Emile Charlap’s contracting and copying office dominated the New York recording scene for decades. During that time, Emile’s avocation was his personal “rehearsal” band (featuring himself on second trumpet), which gradually expanded from its original quintet format into a full twelve-piece ensemble. Rehearsing weekly for over 30 years, the group attracted many of New York’s best musicians, and accumulated a repertoire of jazz arrangements by some of New York’s finest.
