First Take

Larry Jackson and Penni Layne started First Take in 2005. Their first CD was a Holiday CD called "Like Christmas" doing jazz versions of Holiday standards plus one original. Their second CD, This Time, featured more original music and a few standards in jazz and Latin styles. They perform around New England in various line ups from a duo to a 5 piece group. They have a few videos on Youtube and their cover of 'What a difference a day makes" has close to 150,000 views.

They also perform as a larger ensemble called Penni Layne and the Wonder Boys. This group performs mostly Soul and R&B music and includes a 3 piece horn section.
