DIG JAZZ: David Cooper's DRIFT

Theater
Friday, February 26
7 pm
Wisconsin Union Theater | Virtual Event
Cost: Free
Trumpet driven acoustic quintet that focuses on through-composed music.

The ensemble DRIFT is an acoustic jazz quartet that focuses on through-composed music. As opposed to the head-solos-head format of conventional small group jazz, many of QUAD's works do not repeat forms, but are composed start to finish with solos sections built within the piece. Influences/inspirations are drawn from Bela Bartok, Miles Okazaki, Kenny Werner, Kenny Wheeler. All compositions and arrangements for DRIFT are by Dave Cooper composed within 2018-19.

David Cooper (trumpet), Tom Gulliom (tenor sax), Chris Rottmayer (piano), Matt Endres (drums), Nick Moran (bass).
