David Woodhead’s The Confabulation CD Release of Tunnels and Visions

Friday, February 02 2018, 8:30pm - 11:00pm
David Woodhead’s longtime ensemble project The Confabulation has developed a unique voice, with compositions ranging from rambunctious romps to contemplative minimalism, plus stops at vintage song and contemporary parlour music on the way. The release of their new album TUNNELS AND VISIONS takes place on Friday, February 2nd at Hugh’s Room Live Seasoned Toronto bassist/composer/producer David Woodhead's project The Confabulation, combines a handful of expert players and brilliant ideas from the folk, jazz and world-music circles in which he travels. The Confabulation fuses the inviting community feeling of folk, the wide musical palette of jazz, the entrancing rhythms of world music, with the occasional foray into classical music structure. Tunnels and Visions is a high-spirited, cinematic deep-dive into '70s-style jazz composition and improvisation. Naturally, it features Woodhead's trademark melodic electric bass playing, with an expressive touch on the fretless, but there's also a long list of notable instrumentalists. Band members include keyboardist Doug Wilde (Manteca), reeds player Colleen Allen (Molly Johnson, Holly Cole), guitarist Bob Cohen (Jesse Winchester) violinist Anne Lindsay (Jim Cuddy Band) and drummer Rich Greenspoon (Betty and the Bobs, Stewed Tomatoes).
