Fiona's Comments

Madness! Ok, this is known as Avant-Pop with Surf Rock and some Jazz. It's like a subway 12" with meatballs (+ steroids and a microchip) eating a cheeseburber. Odd but fun.

About the Album

The Daniel Bennett Group plays quirky modern Jazz, fused with elements of Surf Rock and Avant-Pop. The opening track on SINKING HOUSEBOAT CONFUSION is "John Lizard Comes Home." This song epitomizes the new musical path that the band is forging.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
