April 12 – Wil Swindler’s Elevenet
The Elevenet is composer and saxophonist Wil Swindler‘s newest musical project. This unique ensemble, comprised of both improvisers and classical musicians, follows in the tradition of jazz great Gil Evans and his compositions for groups of 9-12 musicians. The group consists of two saxophones, bass clarinet, flute, 2 trumpets, trombone/euphonium, french horn, piano/gtr, bass, and drums. The musical material consists of original jazz compositions by Swindler as well as adaptations and arrangements of music from Gil Evans, Björk, the Beatles, and many more. Artistically, the Elevenet seeks new sounds within the jazz idiom. Swindler‘s orchestration exploits the instrumentation of the group to create unique textures and timbres that set his ensemble apart from other jazz groups. The music is cutting edge but very listenable and compelling for all audiences. The musicians in the Elevenet include Denver‘s finest professional improvisers and instrumentalists.
