Manhattan romance

Joined by Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, and Todd Barkan as producer, Cassity brings new hues to these classic songs, and proves what we all know to be true: no matter where or when, the story of love will never get old. --Kyla Marshell

Relentless

Cassity's sophomore release, Relentless (Jazz Legacy Productions), is a testament to her abilities as a performer, writer, and leader, featuring rising jazz luminaries--Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Michael Dease (trombone), Orrin Evans (piano), Dwayne Burno (bass), and E. J. Strickland (drums). It is a shining example of her poise, song-bird lyricism, and purpose.

Just for you

Ms. Cassity's alto saxophone leads her band (sextet) through an eclectic, yet swinging set of originals and standards. Cassity has passion, style and chops to burn. You won't be disappointed!  - J. Dunaway
