The Sam West Trio is a rock-infused gumbo of jazz, funk, and world music. Their 10-year tenure together in southern Illinois and Nashville Tennessee has cultured a signature style perpetuated by West's prolific songwriting, driving bass lines, and the bands ability to improvize and interact. The result: songs that pulsate with a poetic sensibility and a rocker's mad hatter heart. Music you want to hear. Music that makes you dance.
