Brilliant eclectic mix of idioms that creates advanced music that is still highly accessible and artistically relevent. The tension is perfectly held with a deft combination of atonal modernism and more conventional consonant jazz idioms. Themes of burlesque cabaret keep the drama high, slickly delivered my sharp musicianship and accomplished vocals. Punchy, original, exciting audio with a fine video too.
There are several clubs on this street that play great live jazz, and Columbia Station features bebop jam sessions during the weekends. I've heard some super talented jazz musicians playing over there.
