About Jazz Sketches

Tim Atherton (trombone) and Doug MacMillan (guitar) found a lovely simpatico during a weekly Thursday night engagement at Chandler’s Tavern in South Deerfield, MA. Enjoying the same tunes and developing a thoughtful, sensitive conversational style together, the two musicians conceived Jazz Sketches. Another weekly engagement of Friday nights followed soon after, where Doug and Tim were joined by many fine musicians, among them Chris Brashear (fiddle/mandolin), John Van Eps (vibes) and Marty Jaffe (bass).
