LOOPestra: an orchestra of guitar loops

Punk jazz? Blues prog? EDM jam band? Eclectic is Teddy Kumpel’s middle name, but that didn’t stop him from inventing a new kind of music. LOOPestra showcases his on-the-fly song productions and singular musical voice. With live looping technology and clever use of modern guitar efx that swirl around the room, Teddy carries listeners to edge of the cliff and delivers them to brilliantly orchestrated, humorous songs in a way that will make you think there are five other musicians backstage even though you only see three. If Jackson Pollock were a guitar player, he would play like Kumpel, throwing licks against the wall to see if they’ll stick. Teddy tours with Joe Jackson, played on a Grammy winning album, has produced award winning projects, and hosts NYC’s top musicians in LOOPestra’s rotating cast. Adept at all aspects of music creation and production, Teddy’s musical wizardry leaves his audiences in disbelief and begging for more. www.TeddyJam.com

Joining Teddy 1st and 3rd Mondays @midnight at the Rockwood Music Hall are New York’s best and brightest musicians. A different rhythm section every time. Shawn Pelton and James Genus (Saturday Night Live), Keith Carlock (Steely Dan), Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors), Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen (Bill Frisell), and world renown musicians Tim LeFebvre, Henry Hey, Erik Deutsch, Richard Hammond, Jonathan Maron, Mark Guiliana, Josh Dion, Bob Stander, Allison Miller, Rene Hart, Chris Morrissey, Jojo Mayer, Ben Perowsky, Dan Weiss etc… it’s a rotating cast of NYC working musician stars doing their own thing.

This is proof that killer musicianship can be fun too!
I've misplaced my CD copy somewhere in my home and so downloaded it from CDBaby. I love this session and can't wait for more. Your brain can dig into all the way cool effects and the quality of the performances, but it's also just plain fun. Many levels of enjoyment for the lucky listener.
