playing with the likes of Mike Ruby, David Occhipinti, Dave Restivo, Barry
Romberg, Harley Card, Chris Donnelly, and many others.
Drummer Ernesto Cervini is making a name for himself as a
consummate bandleader and in-demand sideman, repeatedly praised for
his deeply musical, infectiously energetic talents. Time Out New
York encapsulated Cervini as “a buoyant drummer as well as a sharp
composer and bandleader,” while the jazz bible, Downbeat, described his
fluid style as one that “exemplifies 'float like a butterfly, sting like
