Andy Wheelock, a University of Wyoming Department of Music assistant professor, will present a record release concert Friday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

The concert is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. Seating may be limited.

Music from Wheelock’s new CD, “View From Here,” will be featured as part of the UW Department of Music’s Faculty Recital Series. “View From Here” represents Wheelock’s musical perspective of fusion, funk, timba, jazz and many other genres combined into “heavy grooves, infectious melodies and wide-open sonic vistas.”

Wheelock will be joined by a band of all-star musicians, featuring Denver-based musician Alex Heffron, on guitar; UW Department of Music Associate Professor Ben Markley, on piano; two-time Latin Grammy Award nominee Gonzalo Teppa, on bass; and two-time Grammy Award winner Ernie Watts, on saxophone.

Wheelock is an active jazz drummer and percussionist who has performed with numerous notable musicians. His latest projects include performing with the Ben Markley Quartet, the Gonzalo Teppa Quintet, the Dimitrije Vasiljevic Quintet and with the UW jazz faculty.

Wheelock is the UW Department of Music’s percussion area coordinator. He leads Jazz Ensemble II; teaches percussion methods and percussion lessons; and directs the UW Percussion Ensemble, for which he regularly composes.
