Harry Skoler performs songs from the swing era, showcasing the music of Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and their contemporaries. The instrumentation's unique sound features clarinet and vibraphone in a quartet setting.

The quartet's distinct arrangements are exacting and delicate. With an emphasis on a lyrical and fluid approach, the ensemble's style can best be described as 'chamber-like'.
