Emilie, who's been orchestrating her father's music for more than a decade, is establishing herself as an indie rocker with her grooving and atmospheric group, Story of M. Their CD is titled These Little Crimes.

Son of Grammy-winning clarinetist Richard Stoltzman, pianist Peter John Stoltzman's music takes its cue from jazz and improvised music. A CD of his original music called Cycles is available through his website, petersstoltzman.com. The father-son duo often perform together on stage, and an upcoming CD of clarinet and piano music is in the works.
