TOO MANY ZOOZ

With the snowballing trend towards electronic instrumentation in music, it's easy to forget where it all first started: on street corners with real instruments, playing for tips, that is until you've heard Too Many Zooz. One part New Orleans Jazz, one part Caribbean Calypso and two parts fun, Too Many Zooz is a three-piece "brass house" band comprised of Matt Doe, Leo P, and King of Sludge. The group found their voice playing for change on New York's subway platforms, honing extremely danceable rhythms and melodies.

A video of one of their frenetic subway performances was posted to Reddit and went viral to the tune of over 1.8 million views, and in a very short time amassed a large fan base. Additional videos have hundreds of thousands of views, and Facebook likes now surpass 200,000.

This is all for good reason, too. Their music is infectious, impossible to stay still listening to. As old-fashioned as their musical approach is, – if one were to call live instrumentation old fashioned – the structure of their songs follows very closely to any hit EDM track, hence their self-prescribed "brass house" genre. The drums provide a rhythmic base, the saxophone a bass line and the trumpet serves as the melody, guiding you to a gradually increasing, precipitous crescendo, where all the instruments come together only "drop" from a dizzying height, clashing together in an explosive climax of sound. Too Many Zooz will definitely force you to reconsider the way you think about jazz music.
