The Flying Luttenbachers

Between 1991 and 2007 this notorious instrumental unit wasted puny earthlings with an amorphous fusion of all things extreme and dissonant in music: hardcore-punk rawness, death-metal speed/technicality, free-jazz asymmetry, no-wave skronk, progressive-rock conceptual bombast, electronic-noise and modern-classical abstraction. Over the course of 16 full-length albums the group included jazz luminaries such as Hal Russell, Ken Vandermark, Fred Lonberg-Holm and Jeb Bishop as well as underground rock virtuosos like guitarists Mick Barr and Ed Rodriguez. The band's connection to the jazz idiom comes primarily from a thread of high energy freedom that was most apparent on punk-jazz albums such as 1995's "Destroy All Music" and the obliteratingly brutal double LP "Trauma" released in 2001

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
