More about Eucalyptus:
"Brodie West's adventure in avant jazz is accompanied by a who's who of Toronto avant whatever odd ball scene, including guitarist Alex Lukashevsky, trumpeter Nicole Rampersaud, pianist Ryan Driver, drummer Nick Fraser, bassist Mike Smith Muskox and percussionists Blake Howard and Evan Cartwright. Pulling from a variety of worlds, music traditions & a generally buoyant feeling of love & harmony, Eucalyptus are the perfect band to have playing on the pool side patio at your palatial Caribbean estate. " Tad Michalak, Burn Down the Capital
