Brass and percussion trio Moon Hooch plays a dissonant yet catchy type of jazz. It’s so modern, that even the term ‘post-modern’ doesn’t do it justice. The line-up is already eccentric: a drummer and two saxophonists. With tons of positive energy, Wilbur, Wenzl and James are playing a unique mix of virtuoso jazz, groovy funk and layered electronics.
In only a few years, the trio have gone from busking in the metro stations of New York to touring the US in large venues. The members of Moon Hooch have all been classically trained, but with their music they explore new ground. The English newspaper The Guardian referred to the band’s sound as ‘techno-jazz’, and that’s actually quite apt.
