Individual Artist Project recipient, composer and trombonist Andy Clausen will be releasing a record of new music workshopped and fine-tuned over the last year-and-a-half by his Wishbone Ensemble. The album, The Wishbone Suite, is to be released on Seattle’s new music record label Table & Chairs on March 8th, accompanied by an album release show at the Chapel Performance Space in Wallingford. Acoustic duo Thousands will open the show.

The New York Times recently described one of Clausen compositions as “sleek, dynamic large-group jazz, a whirl of dark-hued harmony and billowing rhythm…” Winner of the Gerald Wilson Award for Jazz Composition (2009) from The Monterey Jazz Festival, Clausen’s latest composition, The Wishbone Suite, displays the depth of his skills as a composer and arranger. 4Culture is proud to have supported this project!
