Album Notes
Neslort originally formed in 1991, played around New Orleans and made 3 consecutive performances at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, but then disbanded in 1998. Back by popular demand, the group has re-formed and currently has a new CD, “Mystical Scam” due out in October of 2010.

The music of Neslort pulls from straight ahead rock, middle-eastern, jazz, funk, as well as some group improvisations scattered in amongst the compositions. The music is fun, exhilarating, challenging, and new. It’s certainly not meant to be background music!

“…It’s somewhat reminiscent of the Jazz Crusaders, but the material they are playing shows influences of Bach, Don Ellis, Chick Corea, and Frank Zappa, along with the undeniable grooves of what one would expect of a New Orleans band. Throw in a bit of circus music and some spontaneous improvisation, and there it is, a new kind of Gumbo, called Neslort!” ~ Zircoff Mata

Copy of review by Michelino
After I read this review I listened to this cd and I don't think I could express it any better. From the opening cut to the last beautiful improv, this is concept art with some of the finest "alternative Jazz" that has ever come out of New Orleans, plus if you like your rock to be on the hard side, and your swing to be wild...there is just is nothing more I can say than you need to get a copy now. "Primordial Fusion" indeed. You might not think that something that reads so serious would start swinging in the middle of it...but this song does. And let me know when you discover "Picture"...a song that lives in the same space of thought as Lennon's "Imagine" but with attitude in brass.

The seven instrumental cuts lend to the organic whole and use every solo as part of a continuity...and you can sense how into this album every member of the band was. Some of the names, like Boyanna Trayanova (who is wonderful on drums) may or may not be new to you while others, like Matt Perrine (love his bass solo on "I found you") you will definitely be familiar with.
