Jason Seed Elixir Ensemble

BandRockJazz

Played SXSW and it went fantastic...because of the size of the files you have to go to www.myspace.com/jasonseedelixirensemble to hear the core tunes but there's a sampler here...we've been compared in the press to Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, Steely Dan, early Phish, Mahavishnu and even Bela Bartok

Biography

The influences range from Frank Zappa to Hungarian Folk Music to Bill Withers to Bach to Phish to Steve Reich and Bill Frisell, Duke Ellington and Stravinsky....rock, funk, jazz, classical, r&b, blues, folk music from anywhere and alot of the whynot? aestethic...played SXSW this year and had a great time. the group moves between genres with ease touching on jam, jazz, rock, modern classical, funk, r&b, dixieland, free jazz
