From Andrew Boscardin's blog about the June 11 CD release party for the debut self-titled album by ZUBATTO SYNDICATE:
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Zubatto Syndicate release party on June 11. It was an extremely fun show and it was great to see old friends and make a bunch of new ones too! We played almost the entire record and debuted our cover of Metallica's Master of Puppets." Apparently, our version is so heavy that it made it a fellow in the audience fall unconscious off his bar stool. This really happened! He may also have been drinkingit was a party after all.
If you couldn't make it, here are a couple of videos from the show. Sadly, the video of Master of Puppets" wasn't complete, so you'll just have to wait to hear our version. We will be playing it at the Earshot Jazz show on July 21, so come check it out!"
Jazz is a creative explosion of individual freedom and communication.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was a kid. My father had a music store.
The best live performance I ever attended was Kenny Garrett in Harlem, New York.
The first jazz record I bought was Saxophone Colossus by Sonny Rollins.
My advice to new listeners is keep listening!
