Mulberry Street (Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records) by Jeff Fairbanks' Project Hansori

Editor's Comments

Song has the wild exhilaration of a Tom Waits song and the experimental whimsy of Kamikaze Ground Crew. This is the kind of tune to get your Big Band Friday night started. Jazz from the Brooklyn jazz scene.
