The sweet, radiant music of trombonist and composer Andy Clausen is here in finest form. The Wishbone Suite—Clausen’s first Table & Chairs release—is sonorous and wondrously vivid. In this outing he is joined by clarinetist Ivan Arteaga, pianist Gus Carns, accordionist Aaron Otheim, and percussionist Chris Icasiano. Featuring a wealth of musical variety and compositional elegance, The Wishbone Suite is an alluring and emotionally powerful journey.
