Avid explorers of cross-genre territory, they are dedicated to the cultivation of a new brass quartet repertoire that exists in the ever-narrowing gap between American folk music, jazz, classical, and indie rock. Since their inception in 2011, The Westerlies have premiered over 40 original works for brass quartet, and crafted an approach that trumpeter Dave Douglas has described as “Swinging, grooving, clean and tricky playing. This is the group that, once you’ve heard them, you’ll realize they always needed to exist. Unique, original, exciting. And simply killing in the best sense.” Their music exudes the warmth of their longstanding friendships, and reflects the broad interests of its members.
