Industrial Jazz Group

A Brief History of the Industrial Jazz Group Formed by composer / pianist Andrew Durkin in the spring of 2000, the Industrial Jazz Group has frequently been accused of confounding innocent listeners. And no wonder: in addition to its perplexing name (the group could never be confused with, say, Nine Inch Nails), the IJG seems to change shape?"aesthetically and physically?"every year or so. Sure the music is always fun (and it should here be noted that many of the group

The Jazz Session #98: Industrial Jazz Group

The Jazz Session #98: Industrial Jazz Group

The Industrial Jazz Group is a 15-ish-piece large ensemble that plays the inventive, challenging and often hilarious music of composer Andrew Durkin. That sentence, though, doesn't come close to doing them justice. The band, made up of musicians fluent in jazz, classical and rock and inspired by the free-for-all spirit of Frank Zappa is a force ...

Industrial Jazz Group: Leef

Read "Leef" reviewed by Matthew Miller

It's hard to take anything about the Industrial Jazz Group for granted. Even the LA-based ensemble's name is misleading to the point that its leader, Andrew Durkin, feels the need to address it in the header of the group's website. “So we're not really industrial. Were The Beatles really insects?" As explanations go--humorous as they might ...

Industrial Jazz Group: LEEF

Read "LEEF" reviewed by Brad Glanden

It's difficult to fathom a universe where someone would not enjoy listening to LEEF. One would have to be conditioned, Clockwork Orange-style, into finding the sound of musical instruments morally reprehensible. There's nothing on the Industrial Jazz Group's album that couldn't be embraced wholeheartedly by someone with an otherwise unrepentant disdain for all things jazzy.

Industrial Jazz Group: Industrial Jazz A Go Go!

Read "Industrial Jazz A Go Go!" reviewed by Andrey Henkin

For those expecting to read about Ministry tunes played by full trumpet sections, stop right now. The Industrial Jazz Group has absolutely nothing to do with industrial music per se. I might posit that the adjective refers to an almost assembly line-like amalgamation of every known big band style into one mechagodzilla that destroys Tokyo.

Industrial Jazz Group: Industrial Jazz A Go Go!

Read "Industrial Jazz A Go Go!" reviewed by Brad Glanden

Few categorical terms inspire as much trepidation among listeners as “avant-garde," and it is decidedly difficult to market music labeled as such. Even so, many artists on the fringe have tempered their envelope-pushing works with material that could be accused of having top-forty aspirations. It is rare indeed to discover someone capable of writing music that ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
