The Westerlies, a Seattle-born, New York-based brass quartet “at the intersection of new music and progressive jazz” (Nate Chinen, WBGO) tour in support of their latest album "Wherein Lies the Good."
The Westerlies have garnered substantial acclaim for their full and wondrously intimate sound and broad expressive palette. In their work they combine the delicacy and precision of the concert hall, the breathless spontaneity of a midnight jam session, and the earthy grit of a backyard hoedown. With three albums under their belt, an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and appearances from Carnegie Hall to Coachella, the category-defying chamber quartet has also widened its scope in searching collaborations with Fleet Foxes, Theo Bleckmann, Dave Douglas, and more.
