Jazz Beat: Westport Art Ensemble at Take Five Coffee + Bar 

The Westport Art Ensemble captures your attention, welcoming you for a listen to the complex and dynamic interplay among master musicians. These days, the ensemble usually reunites when drummer Todd Strait - who moved to Portland and often tours with Karrin Allyson - returns to town. With bassist Gerald Spaits, keyboardist Roger Wilder and saxophonist Dave Chael, WAE performs original compositions like a conversation among old friends. Hearing these artists in Take Five’s living-room space, you just may find yourself leaning your ear forward to ensure that you don’t miss anything they musically say.
