Aaron Hedenstrom – tenor Sax

Sam Worthington – bass

Phil Hey – Drums

Led by Double Bassist Sam Worthington. This high energy group focuses on a very specific direction in Jazz where the feel of the tunes is accentuated by a straight eighth note pulse. This is the same type of pulse of much popular, rock and hip hop music. In Jazz, it’s importance is ubiquitous, and many of the well knows tunes of Jazz have this type of feel. People LOVE this music and I don’t think there has ever been an ensemble devoted specifically to this mission. Their previous performances were amazing. Check them out. Not to be missed.
