Über Big Lazy
This Brooklyn New York instrumental trio has been together for several years; fans of the late great TV cop show Homicide: Life on the Streets might be familiar with their work, which was used often as incidental music on the show. The band, known as Lazy Boy before losing a battle with the recliner company, consist of electric guitar, acoustic bass, and drums. They play a seductive, noirish blend that combines traditional trash/twang guitar instrumental music with strong elements of Jazz and film music a la Nino Rota. The band rarely lapses into cliche and seems to be able to come up with endless variation for their of harmonically dark, yet sonically lush mood pieces.
