Update Wellstone Conspiracy + Follow

Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

Four of the Northwest's finest jazz artists reunite on “Motives” for a wide-ranging, adventurous recording of orignal works, including a free-wheeling tribute to drummer Ed Blackwell, and melodic pieces flavored by the modern harmonies of Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. The disc closes with an impressionistic cover of Billy Strayhorn's “A Flower is a Lovesome Thing.” Wellstone Conspiracy features Seattleites Bill Anschell on piano, Jeff Johnson on bass, and John Bishop on drums, joined by Idaho-based saxophonist Brent Jensen. The four musicians continue to refine the collective artistry displayed on their 2006 debut CD, “One More Mile” (under Brent Jensen's name), a cohesive group sound that All About Jazz reviewer John Barron described as: “...lively, inventive and beckons for repeated listening.”
