"...I also caught local boys Sesha Loop deliver a slick set of their jazz-funk-soul-rock hybrid.

I know what you're thinking. Does this area really need another jazz-funk-soul hybrid band? Well, I ask myself that same question, but after listening to the Sesha Loop , I can honestly say "yes." You see it's all in the approach.

Keyboardist/vocalist Scott Bradlee said that the band approaches each song like it's a jigsaw puzzle, in that they try to figure out what instruments fit in certain spaces to form a complete song. Well, I would definitely say that the band has put the musical pieces in the right places because the band has developed a full sound, one that manages to take all their influences and spit them out in an appealing way that doesn't dilute their power one bit. Their genre-mixing doesn't result in musical mush, like so many other sub-par hybrid bands."

Bio

Formed in 2003 at the esteemed Hartt School of Music, The Sesha Loop has broken the mold of the typical power pop trio for good. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music, a quick wit, and the aesthetics of the hippest 1930’s jazz musicians, this Hartford-based 3 piece has carved out their own niche in the pop music landscape with their debut album, An Evening With The Sesha Loop. Led by keyboardist/ vocalist Scott Bradlee, The Sesha Loop combines Ben Folds Five-era keyboard bashing, witty songwriting a la Elvis Costello, a heavy dose of jazz/ funk, and sinister organs straight out of 1940’s radio thrillers in their tight-knit, tasteful arrangements. Couple this with an energetic, buzzworthy stage show that features (on any given night) a disco dance-off, appearance by an eccentric British New Wave star, a medley of classic rock songs interpreted as ragtime piano, an impromptu marching band appearance, and other over-the-top moments and it is clear what sets this band apart from your “typical” pop/rock outfit. The band’s lineup includes reknowned session bassist Chris Anderson, drummer Mike Lapke, and special guest appearances by sax extraordinaire Ben Golder-Novick.
Scott Bradlee studied jazz piano under Skip Wilkens and Andy LaVerne, and played in a number of ensembles under the guidance of such jazz greats as Rufus Reid, Nat Reeves, and Steve Davis. In 1999, Scott was chosen as a representative of the New Jersey Teen Arts competition and performed on The Metro Learning Channel. A well-known performer in the Hartford area, he has appeared on television twice and has received extensive press coverage from such publications as The Hartford Advocate. As a music management major at Hartt, Scott studied the principles of buzzmarketing and applied them to promoting The Sesha Loop, which has built up an impressive nationwide fanbase on the popular social networking site Myspace.com.
An Evening With The Sesha Loop, The Sesha Loop’s self-produced debut, was released in February of 2006 and is available through Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, and Borders.com.
