The Wes Carroll Confabulation walks the tight-rope, balancing detailed arrangements with the power of spontaneity. They have been performing and adapting their music since early 2015, most notably at the Victoria Jazz Festival in 2015. Their unique sound is created through the marriage of difference where jazz meets groove, soulful vocals meet intricate melodies and trumpet combines with guitar. They perform predominantly original music, reaching out into a world of hip-hop rhythms and modern harmony while not losing their footing in jazz, soul and the blues.
