Michel Heroux (Canada)-Folk Song

Michel Heroux (Canada)-Folk Song
This is a return to jazz for me, after a few years of other musical ventures. I wanted to try a more ‘open’ sound,, like on many of the ECM albums that influenced me. The tune has a friendly and gentle vibe to it, I think we need this kind of vibe these days… The band is 2 guitars, double bass, and drums. Hope you like it.

Waves Colectivo--Darwin's Approval

Waves Colectivo(USA)-Darwin’s Approval
Composer: Ben Maloney
Album: Darwin’s Approval (Cayenne Blend Productions)
Website
“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.
