Weird Turn Pro / Let Me Be Unwound – led by pianist/composer Mike Effenberger, WTP as well features Matt Langley on reeds, Chris Klaxton on trumpet, Chris Gagne on trombone, Rob Gerry on bass and Mike Walsh on drums and creates a floating, repetitive, jazz inspired music that is minimalistic and meditative. The sextet often sounds as a much bigger ensemble, pushing the tiny melodic phrases around and ‘embracing repetition as form of change’. Music like a river: seemingly being the same without ever being so … as minimal changes constantly occur. Fascinating!

RECORD RELEASE COMING SOON : 7.13.18

Weird Turn Pro is happy to announce the release of our second record in as many years.  "Let me be Unwound" further explores the overlap of (and gray areas between) the beautiful and bizarre, but this one's available as a CD or a beautiful 12" LP.

What will it sound like, you ask?  Well, if it were slowed down 800% and you had a spare five hours, the first track would sound like THIS.

OK, fine, fine, you can check out a pre-release sample at our bandcamp page HERE.

 

Come hang and celebrate with us and support this music at the Dance Hall in Kittery, ME, Fri 7.13.18, at 8pm.  Tickets are available HERE.
