About the Album

As a composer and saxophonist, Wil Swindler lives for the pristine intervals and warm timbres of orchestral music, while finding creative inspiration in the adventurous freedom of small group jazz. The Elevenet exists as his preferred compositional vehicle so that he can explore and display the beauty found in each. ‘Space Bugs’ showcases some of the music Swindler has written for his highly creative Denver-based ensemble since his 2011 release, ‘Universe B,’ which inspired glowing comparisons to Gil Evans, Eric Dolphy and even Billy May. "...the music remains tonal throughout, the harmonic language is intriguingly complex while remaining utterly accessible." - Cadence
