We are thrilled to share a new video from NPR Music - The Westerlies Tiny Desk Concert! We stopped by the NPR Headquarters in Washington DC on a rainy Friday afternoon in October to play a few songs.

NPR Says: "Young musicians today routinely resist being pigeonholed into a single genre. Such is the case with this unconventional band, which, through its compositions and tight ensemble playing, reveals a built-in sympathy for improvised jazz, rigorous classical structures and sunshiny pop. Trumpeters Riley Mulherkar and Zubin Hensler and trombonists Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch can blow hard - after all, this is a brass band — but the surprise comes in their soft tones and subtle phrasing."
