Wheel Session 26
Tom Wright’s Cat and Mouse Ensemble
Thursday, August 17
1288 Pendleton Street
Tom and the band have taken to presenting thematic jazz concerts; of course they generally come from Tom’s creative and sometimes “whacky” mind.

But for this show the theme is “America IS Great!” That’s right, we will celebrate our nationalism by deconstructing our Nation Anthem, premiering a new anthem for our current times, reworking some classic American gems, and possibly decomposing a number. The Cat and Mouse Ensemble is Tom Wright – saxophones, Philip Howe – trumpet and piano, Robert Nance – bass, and Kevin Korschgen – drums and cymbals....
