About this Artist
The West Coast Get Down (WCGD) are a collaborative group of musicians all born and raised in Los Angeles, CA.
This collective of young musicians are largely being credited with reviving jazz and jazz fusion, making L.A. the focal point for what many consider to be a renaissance for the genre’s mass appeal. Apart, they are some of the most sought-after musicians working today, performing, touring and recording with artists such as Kendrick Lamar (on his landmark album To Pimp A Butterfly), Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill, Chaka Khan, Stanley Clarke, Prince, Rihanna, Babyface and Korn, which is only just scratching the surface of their reach. Collectively, they’ve been called the Wu-Tang Clan of jazz, a fitting comparison, considering the West Coast Get Downs’ prolific creative output and influence.
Members of the crew include Kamasi Washington, Miles Mosley, Tony Austin, Cameron Graves, Ryan Porter, Ronald Bruner, Brandon Coleman and Patrice Quinn. They have known each other since high school, some even earlier, and have honed their unique blend of jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop like no other collective in many years. Together the West Coast Get Down have put Los Angeles on the map as the thriving new music scene and are selling out venues around the globe with their innovative musicianship and exciting live performances!
