Blue Ambition:  JWesley Bassard

Blue Ambition: JWesley Bassard

Enter JWesley Bassard, an enigmatic and innovative percussionist delivering a new twist to the SoCal music scene:  Conga driven smooth jazz.

JWesley holds court in his interview, diving into the deep end of topics such as moving to Los Angeles, inspiration, what it means to be an artist, and the origins of California Conga.  Not only does he own it – and he does! – but he blends it all together with bracing wit and humor.

Enjoy!
