Story City was put together to explore the music of jazz guitarist Pat Metheny and the late saxophone great, Michael Brecker. The ensemble has now expanded its reach to include the Yellowjackets and most importantly, original compositions all their own. A wide variety of musical styles has been pursued by these composers in their conscious effort to promote, advance and develop original musical voices. This music is so complex that its performance takes a true commitment and intensely developed technique toward its execution. Each member of the group was chosen because they posses this intensity and dedication to their instrument and to the music. Specifically through this perspective, Story City ushers in its own new thoughts, ideas and concepts to this ever changing musical force we know as jazz.
