Michael Wilcox/Sheldon Brown/Alan Hall Trio
which way west Sunday concert series


alan-hallmichael-wilcoxThree musicians exploring the subtleties that make jazz a music of the now and the future.

sheldon-brownSaxophonist Sheldon Brown has had an outsized influence on vast expanses of jazz.


With six-string bassist Michael Wilcox and drummer Alan Hall, this trio has been active for more than two decades.

The trio continues in the tradition of Sonny Rollins, one of the earliest proponents of the tenor/bass/drums format. As a trio, they will explore a wide variety of music that has interested them over the years—from Brazilian choro, Bulgarian music, and the music of Herbie Nichols to pieces adapted from the classical repertoire by composers like Brahms, Faure and Machaut. Also featured will be music by bassist-composers such as Gary Peacock, Miroslav Vitous, Jaco Pastorius, and Sam Jones.
