Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

Sex Mob w/DJ Olive were fantastic, talented and amazing. I admit that I had hesitated to experience live jazz with record spinning DJ. But I trusted that Flip would not disappoint. I was spell bound and laughing alternately. I could not have enjoyed myself more.
The Triple Door is a beautiful and acoustically wonderful room. Too bad the servers have to clink glasses and silverware around during the show. Fortunately this show was weird enough that for a while I thought it was part of the ambiance from the turntables.

The band will come together with DJ Olive to play the album Sexotica, their innovative revisiting of the “exotica” genre, popular in the 1950s, with a lot of grooves, rhythmical loops, and both shrilling and atmospheric solos that shall warm you up from the inside and outside!
Sexotica is Sex Mob’s homage to Martin Denny and the sound of Exotica, but don’t go in expecting a Quiet Village. Instead, it seems like the idea was to create their own very personal soundworld, much the way Denny did, but using different tools and sounds. In many ways, it’s just another step in a logical progression for Sex Mob. They’ve never been afraid of using studio tricks; previous releases were co-produced by Scotty Hard who added some of his own sonic treatments, but this time out the entire album is a full-on collaboration between the production team of Good and Evil (Danny Blume and Christian Castagno) and the band, where the music and production are practically equal players.
