Andy J. Forest's blues and Cajun grooves will make you wanna jump out your seat. Forest makes his harp sound like a screeching guitar. This band plays the stuff they don't have and crave in Italy. The real stuff. The soul.
The godfathers of New Orleans modern jazz. For over twenty five years, Astral Project has made the city proud with their funk and fusion tendencies. The band slips in and out of soft and loud dynamics easily. They put on a good show because they'll make you stomp your foot and nod your head as if you were listening to Supagroup. The band's not-so-secret weapon is the chemistry between bassist James Singleton and drummer Johnny Vidacovich. If you don't know a lot about jazz and want to start, begin with these guys.
