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.
