The Captain Wilson Conspiracy And The Improvadelic Sonoscape


The Missoula jazz fusion quartet The Captain Wilson Conspiracy make their first (and possibly last) appearance on "Musicians’ Spotlight." Steve Kalling, Keaton Wilson, and Ed Stalling talk with John Floridis about the challenge of keeping a collaborative music project vibrant and current while its members maintain their "day" jobs - or graduate from Ph.D. programs and get jobs elsewhere. The program features music from the group's debut recording, showcasing their specialty: original compositions and arrangements from the "new American songbook."

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight,"  12/10/15 and 4/28/16. Listen weekly on the radio, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
