ABOUT

Seasoned bass player and singer, seeking to bring together some excellent, laid back, very creative musicians to create or join a creative funky jazzy improvisational horn band to write weird cool funky jazzy worldly outside music. I expect it to be mostly heavily jazz influenced instrumental music, but I am a seasoned lead singer also (great if you are too) and if we find ourselves writing music that incorporates singing, that's cool too. I love and have played all types of music including jazz, funk, fusion, R&B, rock, salsa, bluegrass, jam, alternative, etc, but prefer to write new stuff that doesn't sound like anything you have heard before. Let's start with challenging covers to learn to play together, but soon focus on being a writing ensemble that gigs occasionally, maybe eventually weekly. Can't reach me thru this site? Reach me at farmstyle at com cast dot net. Thx
