LA Source Codes

Will Lyle Music

Producer: Will Lyle

Considering Lyle’s expansive resume, it was perhaps only a matter of time before the Berklee educated, SoCal bred bassist found a way to bridge past and present in creating this eclectic and effusive, hard swinging yet eminently sensual and sometimes exotic debut. Lyle’s unique concept finds him joining forces with three generations of musicians via three distinct ensembles to manifest his belief that bebop, traditional and Latin Jazz are the musical “source codes” kept alive by the dynamic creativity and flow from the older generation to the younger that he now entrusts himself with.
