Raymond's trio Real Feels is a unique band that includes rising stars Gilad Hekselman (guitar) and Denver-native Colin Stranahan (drums). With their unique bass-less instrumentation, the group combines indie-rock and folk-influenced original music with fresh takes on familiar songs by artists like Bob Dylan, Thom Yorke, Bon Iver, Lennon/McCartney and more. The music undoubtedly evokes a nostalgia for the past, however "Real Feels" is far from being antiquated. The band's improvisational, free-wheeling, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of approach to the music makes the songs feel entirely relevant and has made them one of the hottest new groups in jazz music today.
Featuring: John Raymond - trumpet, flugelhorn, Gilad Hekselman - guitar and Colin Stranahan - drums
