Western Jazz Quartet Ignites New Chemistry with Album, Concert


The Western Jazz Quartet lost three of its founding members in 2012, but barely skipped a beat in re-forming a new group. 

This Friday, saxophonist Andrew Rathbun, pianist Jeremy Siskind, drummer Keith Hall and founding member bassist Tom Knific will show off the result of their first collaboration: a full-length album filled with new, original compositions. 

The members of the Western Jazz Quartet joined Cara Lieurance to preview the new album and the concert.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
