West by Northwest
with Jason Carder, Angelo Versace, Tom Wakeling, & Dom Moio
West by Northwest brings together four highly acclaimed artists who have performed worldwide with a who’s who of jazz. The band's live performances embrace jazz’ past, present, and future, with a great chemistry and an adventurous, hard-swinging style.
Trumpet master Jason Carder (Yanni, Maria Schneider, Ray Charles, Woody Herman); Tucson, AZ pianist Angelo Versace (Take 6, Jon Faddis, Slide Hampton), and the swinging rhythm team of Portland, OR bassist Tom Wakeling (Lee Konitz, James Moody, Mel Torme), & Phoenix, AZ drummer Dom Moio (Clark Terry, Herb Ellis, Ahmad Jamal) join forces only a handful of times each year to perform as West by Northwest. Their time together on the bandstand is always a musical highlight of the year, both for them and for their audiences!
West by Northwest’s compositional maturity, musicality, humor, energy, and crushing groove always leave audiences wanting more!
