Free Nelson MandoomJazz

REVIEW: Free Nelson MandoomJazz, 'The Organ Grinder,' RareNoise Records >>

Free Nelson MandoomJazz is a punk-jazz-metal alternative from Scotland who have been freaking people out since 2013's 'The Shape of DoomJazz To Come/Saxophone Giganticus' and their 2014 'Awakening of a Capital' follow-up. Rebecca Sneddon, Colin Stewart and Paul Archibald are musical anarchists. It's safe to assume you have never heard anything like 'The Organ Grinder' (RareNoise Records).

Sonny Rollins

REVIEW: Sonny Rollins, 'Holding The Stage:Road Shows Volume #4,' Doxy Records >>
