The second of a three disc set released in 2011 featuring all original compositions and some of Nashville’s finest jazz musicians. This album has a very creative, explorative, modern jazz sound. A cross between Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Gerrett, with a touch of experimentalism.
“West’s soul-drenched modern mainstream jazz arrangements are augmented by ample amounts of pop and sizzle. He possesses a full-bodied tone and whirls through bop, swing and funky New Orleans-based second-line motifs, conveying a level of maturity beyond his years and proving to be an ardent improviser throughout the invigorating festivities.” -Glenn Astartia, Allaboutjazz.com
“West has honed his compositional skills, but more so he’s grown into his voice, a sound that’s identifiable whether he’s blowing over hard-bop changes or putting the hot sauce on some greasy musical gumbo. With his Trilogy series, West is establishing himself as one of the area’s top jazz artists, on par with heavyweights such as (Jeff) Coffin, Don Aliquo and Rod McGaha” -Jack Silverman The Nashville Scene
