Soil & "Pimp" Sessions, the groundbreaking sensation of 2008's summer Montreux Jazz Festival, are set to invade the U.S. in 2009 with their newest album on KOCH Records, Planet Pimp.
This is a band that accepts no taboos and acknowledges no barriers in their mission to rid jazz of its tired old clichés, and re-energize the values that made it the original popular music of a time gone by. The attitude is ferocious and full of humor; the music charges ahead with abandon: rhythmic, danceable, driven by powerhouse grooves, kinetic piano, and bold horns.
Soil & "Pimp" Sessions are now ready to begin their friendly takeover of the United States' alternative, club, fusion, and contemporary jazz scenes.
"Soil & 'Pimp' Sessions are just what jazz needs right now: an operation to remove all that's outdated, and a much-needed adrenalin shot in the arm." — The Londonist
