Meghan Stagl and Matthew Epperson started their duo while studying jazz at Western Michigan University, where, they say, jazz students are thrown into a churning musical mix from the get-go.

With a new album in the works, they joined Cara Lieurance in the Takeda Studio for a selection of old and new standards.
