Currently, Clint is working on the following groups and projects:
w/ Kansas City Jazz Orchestra: The final three concerts of the 2016-17 season, including "Hard Habit to Break," the music of the great 70's horn bands like Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, and more. This concert will be at the Kauffman Center on March 3rd. Upcoming will be a suite-like treatment of the music of John Coltrane and Miles Davis, paying homage to the great Gil Evans' thoughtful writing.
En Masse: a very unique large ensemble featuring strings, keyboards, vocal soloists, and progressive writing inspired both from the jazz idiom as well as bands such as Bon Iver and James Blake. Check out some preliminary videos in the media section!
Forward: Ashlock's long-time quintet, which is directly out of the long-standing tradition of The Jazz Messengers, Horizon, Dave Holland, and more. Ashlock's progressive, soulful writing is showcased by some of Kansas City's great players.
