UK modern jazz artists Led Bib is a 5 piece band with a dual sax and Fender Rhodes front line, here in their fifth album of hard-edged improvisation with rock influences.
Bring Your Own
Released in: USA
"Rock? Jazz? The sound made by the clattering of a band's worth of plugged-in instruments falling down the stairs? UK skronk-jazz-rock-punk-whatever quintet Led Bib release their fifth album, Bring Your Own and bring all of these influences to the table. A tremendously popular act at home in the UK, their last album, Sensible Shoes (their first with Cuneiform) was a 2009 'Album of the Year' winner with the prestigious Mercury Prize. They regularly play large-scale festivals and concert halls in the UK as well as festivals and shows elsewhere in Europe.
So, in the wake of the huge press attention lavished on them due to the Mercury, and having appeared on UK's Channel 4 News, performing their version of the theme music to millions in front of the telly, did the mighty Bib decide to tone it down? Turn it back a notch? Definitely not. If anything, Bring Your Own contains some of their hardest rocking material to date, mixing the full throated cry of the dual saxes over loudly amplified Fender Rhodes and heavy bass and drums.
Led Bib were formed in 2003 and have had the same formation since their beginnings"-Cuneiform
