"West Coast jazz refers to various styles of jazz music that developed around Los Angeles and San Francisco during the 1950s. West Coast jazz is often seen as a subgenre of cool jazz, which featured a less frenetic, calmer style than bebop or hard bop. The music tended to be more heavily arranged, and more often composition-based." - Wikipedia

Dedicated to the performance and preservation of West coast jazz, the Midwest Jazz-tette swings the instrumental sounds inspired by Stan Getz, Shorty Rogers, Gerry Mulligan, Dave Pell and many others.
