"Captain Green, “Jazz Noise” (Independent)"

"...this is the time of jazz-funk hybrid that dares you to listen to it, not because it’s musically inept—far from it—but because it’s sonically fearless. Time after time, on song after song, they carpet-bomb the space between your headphones, unleashing a commanding beat and then using every other weapon in their arsenal to lay down a psychedelic firestorm, one through which the brass section can march like a conquering king." - Offbeat Magazine

Born on the banks of the mississippi river, Captain Green represents 7 players' desire to think outside the box. The music created by the boys of CG is highly influenced by the summer festival scene, but maintains the rootsy sound of New Orleans and traditional school of Jazz.

The music is reminiscent of 1970s electric jazz (Miles, mahavishnu, herbie hancock, freddie hubbard), topped with new school jazz (Medeski martin and wood, Bela Fleck, Roy Hargrove, soulive) and a healthy helping of funk (Amnesty, Betty Davis, the meters, melvin sparks).
