Jazz / Hip Pop group, named Jerk has released a new album, available via Bandcamp, the Green EP, a collection of smooth and musically witty pieces that I feel represent the new Jazz sound growing in the Smokey streets of NYC.
The Green EP, a follow up to their prior 2 releases, simply titled Yellow and Pink is a masterful creation of soul moving tones that are a tribute to a sound that is indicative of the history of the music that made the city nightclub scene thrive in even the toughest times. A Music that inspired the underground revolutions, was the muse to writers and to the literate illuminate of my home town… yes, I am Brooklyn born, so this album gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the sounds of my past, revived by the new Jazz movement.
The Green EP is a collection of 5 original tracks that have some hip moves, bringing the powerful style of rhythm oriented percussion, horns, keys and strings in a blissful way.
Jerk, led by Joshua Kinney on Saxophone, Flute and Synthesizer, Carey Ozmun on Trumpet, Matt Carvin on Piano and Fender Rhodes, Alex Frondelli on Guitar, Mikey Migliore on Bass and Martine Wade on Drums is a musical collective that is going to be big in the most humbling of cities.
It has been long though that LA and the Hollywood music scene is where its at, but in truth, NY, The Big Apple, is where musicians learn how to “cut their teeth” and the Jazz Music world is one of the hardest to make it in, the ability to create music that has the right amount of spark, with emotional appeal that quantifies as the Jazz Experience is one of the hardest, and requires a superior discipline, and I feel Jerk has it in spades.
Buy The Green EP, support real music, and follow the group online, this is what you have been wanting in your life.
