>The New Deal – Gone Gone Gone



Canadian trio composed of keyboardist Jamie Shields, drummer and beatboxer Darren Shearer and bassist Dan Kurtz. Each member played in a variety of jazz bands in Toronto before coming together as a live improvisation act.

While their albums are highly rooted in electronic jazz, with a few female vocalists, their live shows are almost entirely improvised. And with such skilled musicians it is always a blast watching them perform. I saw them this past Saturday at the Gothic Theater in Denver. The drummer had recently broken his hand, they brought out one more drummer to keep the beat as he held it down and beatboxed. I couldn’t find a video from this show but here’s another, enjoy. Great album.
