WEST COAST JAZZ PROJECT Now booking for Europe.
WEST COAST JAZZ PROJECT is now in the process of booking a tour in Europe. This Los Angeles based group is dedicated to the cool west coast jazz movement that started in California in the mid 1950s by such artist as Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Bob Brookmeyer, the Lighthouse All Stars and others.
This group was started by valve trombonist Barry Mosley and saxophonist Dave Victorino in Los Angeles California. For our Europe shows we will be adding the great jazz trumpeter Larry Gillespie who is originally from California, now living in Paris. The musicians have worked together in Los Angeles for many years developing a great musical connection.
The music is based on swinging lyrical West Coast Jazz, with fun interplay between the musicians. All the musicians in this band have enormous credits performing in the top Los Angeles jazz clubs as leaders, and also have performed with artist such Chet Baker, Woody Herman , Ray Charles, and much more.
The style and concept of this group is shown in the first video posted below, playing the west coast tune BERNIES TUNE in a direct to analog tape recording session. NO OVERDUBS , the old way as done by the jazz greats. This was our first take in the live recording session so you can hear the quality of the musicianship.
For contact questions on booking or for anything you want to know about us, please contact me BARRY MOSLEY on this website contact form.
Enjoy the videos and photos below and have a great day, Barry.
