Terell Stafford, Dick Oatts, Bruce Barth, Tim Warfield, Jr., David Wong and Byron Landham, all members of Temple's stellar jazz faculty, have released a new album, Family Feeling, consisting of eight new songs composed and arranged by Bruce Barth. The album was released on the Boyer College label, BCM&D Records, which has garnered 3 Grammy nominations.

Philadelphia-based jazz writer Shaun Brady, writes:

"There’s an old saw that insists, 'You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family.' That may ring true after another tense Thanksgiving dinner, but it’s vigorously refuted by the members of this stellar sextet. Make no mistake – Terell Stafford, Dick Oatts, Bruce Barth, Tim Warfield, David Wong and Byron Landham are a family – and one formed entirely by choice, through ties forged on the bandstand, on the road, and in the classroom."
