Waves Colectivo(USA)-Darwin’s Approval
Composer: Ben Maloney
Album: Darwin’s Approval (Cayenne Blend Productions)
“Darwin’s Approval” celebrates three years of Waves Colectivo performing as the weekly house band for the Wednesday night Latin jazz jam at Brothers Drake Meadery. During these jam sessions, we played with everyone from aspiring student musicians to professional musicians sitting in while on tour. To close out each night, we wrote this song as a way to feature the house band on intricate unison lines as well as an open solo section that anyone, regardless of skill level, could improvise over.
