The Wes Carroll Confabulation:: Andrew Greenwood, Sean Drabitt, Patrick Courtin, Cyril Lojda, Wes Carroll

Wed. February 11th 2015 8pm - 11pm doors at 6pm Hermann's Jazz Club (All Ages) 8pm - 11pm doors at 6pm
Presented by:
Composer, arranger, guitarist and vocalist, Wes Carroll is dedicated to reaching audiences with his original creations. His writing strives to surprise and intrigue through swings of volume, groove and emotion. In the summer of 2013, Wes contributed his musicianship and five originals to the record “Off Pulse Quartet, Live in Holland”. The album was recorded at the end of the quartet's two month stay in the Netherlands and was released the following summer. The Wes Carroll Confabulation walks the tight-rope, balancing detailed arrangements with the power of spontaneity. They perform predominantly original music, stretching out into a world of hip-hop rhythms and modern harmony while not losing their firm footing in post-bop, classic jazz and the blues.
