IN THE PRESS

Plenty to like from the debut by vibraphonist Will Wedmedyk. His quintet sticks to modern territory and a straight-ahead sound, even when he blurs the lines between post-bop and pop.

Will Wedmedyk has played all kinds of music with all kinds of ensembles around Ohio. For his own band, he writes much that combines jazz, pop, funk and even rock — not the most vibes-friendly music.
