Garage A Trois was recently described by noted photographer John Margaretten as, "a transformative, punkalectic, pornographic seizure of sight and sound." Few descriptions have ever so perfectly encapsulated the modern day post-rawk/freak-jazz super group. A force greater than the sum of its colossal parts, Garage A Trois features Seattle-based saxophonics master Skerik, Brooklyn-based sound-sculptor/keysman Marco Benevento, punk rock vibraphone hero Mike Dillon and New Orleans funky drummer/beat master Stanton Moore. After the rousing success of the quartet's 2009 release, 'Power Patriot' (also the band's debut with Benevento replacing original member Charlie Hunter), Garage A Trois headed to Studio iIn The Country in Bogalusa, LA (where masterpieces by The Neville Brothers, Stevie Wonder and The Wild Magnolias have been cut) to record... 'Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil.' [The newest album] delivers from track to track exactly as its title boasts. A massive draw in clubs and festivals around the U.S., this latest opus from Garage A Trois will only help fuel the fire for a growing legion of fans amassing around the most dangerous instrumental band on the scene today.
Vertigo Jazz Project is known for their compositions and performances through the jazz idiom. But people often ask, "Is this Jazz?" VJP has taken on the task of bridging the gap between multiple genres of music such as Jazz, Funk, Latin, Rock, Jam, Avant-Garde, Classical, World and even Country and Bluegrass. Always maintaining a distinctively recognizable element of jazz VJP takes their varied experience and creates original compositions of their easily recognizable form of music; paying homage to the aforementioned styles, with heavy emphasis on the jazz, soul jazz and world elements. A journalist once said of VJP, "I never knew jazz could make me feel this alive, this free and this sweaty!" (Jason Bugg, Mountain Xpress)
