Wed 5/31 @ 7PM
Vibes player and composer Will Wedmedyk, a Baldwin Wallace Conservatory grad with a masters degree in jazz studies from the University of Cincinnati, has played all kinds of music with all kinds of ensembles around Ohio. For his own band, he writes much that combines jazz, pop, funk and even rock — not the most vibes-friendly music.
His group, featuring Chris Coles on sax, Aidan Plank on bass, Anthony Taddeo on drums, Dan Bruce on guitar and Anthony Fuoco on piano, will be making their debut at Blu Jazz + in Akron. And it’s a doubly special show, because they’ll be celebrating the release of Wedmedyk’s debut album Awakening, featuring seven expansive tracks, all composed by Wedmedyk. Admission is $10.
