sample the album:
"The Tiptons are an all-women sax quartet (who sing!) with drums, 10 CDs under their belt, touring & playing festivals in Europe and the US for the last 15 years. Our music is a high energy blend of "twisted folk" with world music, second line, funk, jazz, and eastern european influences thrown into the mix of mainly original material. We are comfortable playing in any venue, including squats, jazz and rock clubs, universities and prisons.
The group features Jessica Lurie and Amy Denio, original members and lead composers of the internationally renowned Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet (BTMSQ), along with Sue Orfield, Tina Richerson and special guest drummer Chris Stromquist (Slavic Soul Party, Kultur Shock).
BTMSQ was originally founded in 1988, named in honor of big band saxophonist and pianist Billy Tipton, following the post-mortem revelation that Tipton was actually a woman who lived as a man for more than 50 years. Many believe that this allowed Tipton to pursue a career in the male-dominated world of jazz. Not to be bound by convention, the Tiptons similarly do their own thing. With a repertoire that ranges from New Orleans "second - line" to jazz, Afro-Cuban to Balkan, klezmer and beyond, the Tiptons create some of the wildest sounds ever to come out of a sax quartet. Their dynamic, playful concerts feature high-energy interaction between members, and a repertoire that touches on soulful music from around the world."-Tiptons
