The Jazz Session #98: Industrial Jazz Group

Published: 2009-10-19
Industrial Jazz Group The Industrial Jazz Group is a 15-ish-piece large ensemble that plays the inventive, challenging and often hilarious music of composer Andrew Durkin. That sentence, though, doesn't come close to doing them justice. The band, made up of musicians fluent in jazz, classical and rock and inspired by the free-for-all spirit of Frank Zappa

is a force of nature, slinking, striding and crashing through Durkin's charts with an obvious love for the groups collective sound. In this interview, Durkin talks about how the band grew from its original trio formation; how comedy works to the groups advantage; and how hes used social networking sites to expand the bands audience. The Industrial Jazz Group is on an East Coast tour through 10/24. Dates and locations are available at IndustrialJazzGroup.com.
