I like this trend I'm seeing of the blending of modern folk music and jazz. It often has a serene back porch lazy day feel, as this song illustrates. It's a neat album, one that switches things up a bit here and there. Good stuff.
Old Time Musketry presents a joyous music that draws on the exuberant spirit of early jazz, the poignant melodies and soulful grooves of rock and folk music, the energy and spontaneity of free improvisation, and a willfully experimental attitude towards combining these elements into a unique vision of American music. From their debut album, "Star Insignia" has a dark, brooding rock feel that builds over the course of the song.
