THE BALTIMORE SUN

Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: Mario Clementoni, vocals, guitar; Lynn Roxy Green, sax, flute, keyboards, vocals.

Founded in: 1994

Style: Smooth jazz

Influenced by: Scott Hamilton and Diana Krall.

Notable: Roxy & Company's new record, titled My Heart Will Catch Up With the News, comes out on Saturday. Green collaborated with blues artist Deanna Bogart on the title song -- which refers to "that time when your head knows a relationship is bound for failure but your heart doesn't want to believe it yet," said Green.

Quotable: Green on her live shows with Clementoni: "We're more like entertainers, we really interact with the crowd. Mario's really funny -- it makes it like a party instead of just background music."

Check out Roxy & Company at its CD release party at Lilly's at Harbor View on Saturday. The music goes from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tickets are free. Lilly's at Harbor View is at 500 Harbor View Drive. Call 410-230-0704.
