The Captain Wilson Conspiracy And The Improvadelic Sonoscape

Dec 10, 2015

The Missoula jazz fusion quartet The Captain Wilson Conspiracy make their first (and possibly last) appearance on "Musicians’ Spotlight." Steve Kalling, Keaton Wilson, and Ed Stalling talk with John Floridis about the challenge of keeping a collaborative music project vibrant and current while its members maintain their "day" jobs - or graduate from Ph.D. programs and get jobs elsewhere.

The program features music from the group's debut recording, showcasing their specialty: original compositions and arrangements from the "new American songbook."

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight,"  12/10/15 and 4/28/16. Listen weekly on the radio, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)
