Wills Mckenna Quintet

"Alameda (Elliott Smith cover)"

Wills Mckenna Quintet

Nobody broke your heart—
You broke your own ’cause you can’t finish what you start.

At its core the Wills Mckenna Quintet is a jazz band, but they draw from a variety of styles, as heard on their cover of Elliott Smith’s 1997 classic, “Alameda”. Using a double guitar and tenor sax formation, the group explores the melodic paths of one of Smith’s most beloved songs.

  • Wills Mckenna — Tenor Saxophone
  • Jeff Swanson — Guitar
  • Matt Gold — Guitar
  • Lane Beckstrom — Bass
  • Matt Carroll — Drums

Recorded live at The Whistler. Mastered by Dan Pierson.
