Willamette Week: Tango Alpha Tango makes exactly the kind of rock ’n' roll I can get behind; it’s sweeping, dramatic and unapologetically evil at the most surprising of moments. Formed from one half of the recently disbanded Carolines (the other half of which went on to create Deepest Darkest), Tango Alpha Tango tempers its pop leanings with an aggressiveness that adds a pleasant layer of grime beneath the shine of the group’s top-notch production and ass-tight songwriting.
Since the creation of the band just two years ago, The Magic Beans have established themselves as one of the most prominent and original acts in the perpetually flooded Colorado music scene and beyond. The group had made a name for themselves with a deep cannon of original songs, virtuosic playing, and fusing genres while connecting with their fan base in a way that is not typical with other bands. Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Beans style can be described as natural and all encompassing, encapsulating the diverse interests of each musician in the band and today’s music lovers into one package. The Magic Beans are well known for going between folk, funk, rock and electronica in a single composition, original setlists each night, and with the added element of improvisation, there is always something special that can happen at every show.

Taken in its entirety, Mike Dillon's Band of Outsiders is a snapshot of four musicians hitting full stride. Having relentlessly toured the country in 2013—both headlining and opening for artists like Fishbone, Clutch, Primus and Galactic—its 13 songs bristle with a group mind, spill over the sides with the visions invoked during countless dead-of-night drives crisscrossing the country in a van and hit their target with a sonic assault only possible from a band that’s played 400-plus shows over the last two years.
“People are always trying to figure out how to describe our music. Maybe we should call it New Orleans punk jazz Brazilian math rock? It’s a gumbo of tribal percussion, The Meters, old school hardcore, Brazil, hard bop and anything else that might move us,” concludes Dillon. “But you know, I really don’t care what you call it. We kick out the jams harder than anyone, and we also know when to heed the lessons of The Minutemen's Double Nickels On The Dime and keep things straight to the point. There’s a reason we called the record what we did. We’re the living, breathing definition of a band of outsiders, but together we deliver simple majestic beauty, let’s leave it at that.”
Over the course of 20 years, 22 albums, and countless tours around the world, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has become an institution in modern music. With their unique approach, JFJO has created a devoted following of music lovers and critics alike. Defined by evolution and change, the band has invented it’s own improvisatory language, one which permeates JFJO’s sound regardless of configuration. Though there is no Jacob or Fred, the last 20 years have been a Jazz Odyssey. Starting in 1994 in Tulsa, OK as a funky octet with MCs and horns, JFJO became an instrumental trio in 1999, a quartet in 2007, and expanded to a 9-piece ensemble for 2011's "Race Riot Suite." 2014 finds the band returning to the trio setting, with Brian Haas, Josh Raymer and Chris Combs producing the most modern and immediate music of the band’s career.
