The first recorded work by Boston's premiere improvisors, Zen Bastards debut release has hit the ground running! This set was recorded over 2 weekends in 2002 and features the core group and many special guests playing some challenging yet remarkably accessible improvised jazz! The disc runs 55 minutes and takes the listener on a variety of musical journeys that touch on jazz, out jazz, funk, punk jazz, rock, electronic music, electronica and much more! Watch for new material from these guys! They're currently cataloging over 24 hours of live material recorded during their 18 month SkyBar residency and have also started working on their sophomore studio recording!
