Sex Mob Meets Medeski Out on Thirsty Ear

From Thirsty Ear:

Sexmob Meets Medeski – Live In Willisau
Release Date: April 21st, 2009 CD

Sexmob was formed in October 1995 to play the “late nite hang” at the Knitting Factory, the now legendary mecca of downtown music. The band ,(consisting of Steven Bernstein – slide trumpet; Briggan Krauss- alto sax; Tony Scherr– bass ; and Kenny Wollesen – drums), starting off playing original compositions, but was soon drawing crowds to their all night partys with their inspired and unpredictable covers. Their first release “Din of Inequity” was released thru Columbia records and featured John Medeski on the organ. This led to years of touring in the US and Europe and the creation of a singular and unique musical language, and a powerhouse live band…combining the power of the Who with the subtelety of Ellington and a modern groove all their own.
