Jazz @ Green Note presents… Local Yokels + Will Glaser
Local Yokels is a new project led by drummer Jay Davis. In a blend of open improvising and original compositions, each member lends their voice through a mutual love of spontaneous music making and the blurring of the lines between improvisation and written material. Davis’s music is inspired by a mixture of Rock, Jazz, Classical, and Choral music whilst the countryside and overheard song provide further fuel to the compositions.
James Copus – Trumpet/Flugel
James Allsopp – Tenor/Bass Clarinet
Huw Williams – Bass
Jay Davis – Drums
Will Glaser (solo)
Exciting and scary for both the performer and audience – a solo drum gig. This one includes everything from standards, free improvisation and specially written pieces for drum kit that will explore melodic approaches to kit playing, diverse sound world’s and some fiery grooves.
