    I believe that's how Jaco defined his style, Punk-Jazz. And of course, he named a tune after it.

    Not Punk in the sense you mean, though, I suspect :)

    I always liked that "punk jazz" because, in a sense all jazz music is punk...or at least it was in it's inception, ya know that whole improv scene "don't care what it sounds like just play!" that mentality, the fun, going against the norms styles of early jazz.

    At anyrate, I feel that that was the perfect way for jaco to describe his music.
  3. Um...keeping with the original intent of the post, this band sounds pretty unique. The recording quality is kinda crappy, though, most evidently when the horns come in. Sounds like something to look out for in the future.
  4. Fine then, think of TPTBUTEF (wow...lots of letters) as jazz with a lot of distortion.

  5. Here's a quote from an interview I did with Mike Watt two years ago about the similarities between punk and jazz:

    The whole interview is at http://www.teamwbpx.com/projectx/watt.htm for your reading pleasure!
  6. When I saw Watt, he played "Love Supreme" in between the bands.

    Great show.
