Westland Trio is...
John Daversa: trumpet & flugelhorn
Todd Millstein: guitar
Damon Zick: tenor saxophone & bass clarinet
Each band member arranges his own compositions for this unique setting, resulting in an eclectic mix of jazz, blues, folk, and pop music. The lack of bass and drums lends a chamber music quality that opens up space for the music to wander into new places. The overall vibe is light, fun, and spontaneous. The band's bassless, drummerless concept was originally inspired by Jimmy Giuffre's trio from the 1950s, with Jim Hall and Bob Brookmeyer.
