Description:
 Major Vistas is Mike Weiser (keyboards), Chris Bucheit (guitar), Michael Brenneis (drums), and Brad Townsend (bass).
Original, modern instrumental and improvisational music can be used to describe a whole generation of musicians that are melding Electronic, Rock and Hip Hop music into a new tradition of Jazz. Perhaps what makes Major Vistas unique in this field is that Mike Weiser and Chris Bucheit are both composers with work that naturally compliments each other in fact it can be difficult to determine which songs are written by whom if you had to guess by sound alone. One thinks back to musical partnerships such as Pat Metheny/Lyle Mays and Donald Fagen/Walter Becker whose collaborative efforts equaled much more than the sum of its parts. But balancing artistic contributions and presenting it as cohesive work can be challenging in the least. This seems effortless for Weiser and Bucheit no doubt in part due to both having diverse musical backgrounds even though growing up in different parts of the Midwest.

Sunday Jazz at Sequoya is funded via the generosity of the Friends of Sequoya Library. Produced in partnership with the Madison Jazz Society.
