Ten years ago, Barbes Records released Hazmat Modine’s debut album, Bahamut, which quickly went on to become a cult classic. Pitchfork probably captured it best by describing it as “generalized roots music that takes from pretty much any roots it sees fit,” and went on to praise the album as “true world music, weird and wonderful to the last note.”
Now ten years later, Barbes is releasing Hazmat Modine’s third studio album: Extra-Deluxe-Supreme: an artistic statement that is the culmination of ten years of musical adventures around the world.
The new album confirms Hazmat Modine’s place as a band of outsiders oblivious to the rules that govern today’s music scene. The group itself is a heterogeneous collection of musicians with a fondness for odd instruments and an all-inclusive view of what constitutes American music. Extra-Deluxe-Supreme is their most classically American album to date. It draws from Gospel and R&B, from Country Blues and early jazz, and displays a strong attention to songcraft, inspired by a long line of American songwriters from Tin Pan Alley to Stax and Motown.
Hazmat’s sound is still defined by their signature tuba and harmonica, as well as their original horn section, guitars and accordion – with the addition of your usual assortment of marimba, doshpuluur, Igil, railroad spikes, claviola, rocks and cimbalom.
Hazmat’s eclecticism is probably what got them noticed in the first place. The band is known for having collaborated with famed Tuvan throat singers Huun Tuur Tu, Benin’s Gangbe Brass Band as well as Natalie Merchant. They count “American songwriting and African music” as their “biggest influences,” and first got noticed by German director Wim Wenders for the Calypso-like Bahamut, which Wenders included in his movie Pina.
Extra-Deluxe-Supreme does away with the more obvious genre hopping and exotic colors of its predecessors. After ten years of leftfield collaborations and extensive touring in places as varied as Siberia, Borneo, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand and Turkey, Hazmat Modine seems to have absorbed it all and wholeheartedly embraces its own forged identity as an American band with its own idea of what American music means.
“Twenty years ago” explains bandleader Wade Schuman “I had to sort through all the complicated detritus of singing in an idiom that has its origins in Southern and rural music but I also embrace being a New Yorker. I like the idea of a New York music which by its nature is eclectic.”
One essential New York tradition remains that of the professional songwriters, starting with Tin Pan Alley and the likes of Irving Berlin (who inspired the song Plans) “Tin Pan Alley affected everything. It was really about the idea of a journeyman songwriter and the fact that we were creating our own music in the 20th century.” You could say that they created the template for all the songwriting teams that would emerge later in Memphis, Detroit, or the Brill Building.
In keeping with the idea of a songwriting team, most of the songs on the album were co-written by Wade Schuman and bandmate and guitarist Erik Della Penna. “Sometimes I’ll write the verse, and Erik will write the chorus. Or if I have a melody he will write the lyrics. We have absolutely no system,” says Schuman about their collaboration. “Neither of us has a preconception of how to do things”
Still, Hazmat Modine has not renounced its fondness for eclectic sources and transcultural feedback, as exemplified by their collaboration with Alash, another band from Tuva. “I brought in the Tuvans again because I thought that they intersect perfectly with a certain kind of American idiomatic language” says Schuman. “On the song Your Sister for instance, I’m going for a kind of rural American sound but the irony is that the Tuvans are playing their own version of the fiddle and banjo and flute – it’s exactly where the tonality of Asia and the Midwest meet.”
For the past ten years, Hazmat has kept a busy touring schedule in most of Europe – with forays into Asia and Latin America. The band has been the recipient of France’s prestigious French Charles Cros Award, a German Records Award and was nominated for a BBC award. Its US appearances, however, tend to be limited to their hometown.
It is true that Hazmat Modine may confuse American audiences. “In most bands everyone looks kind of similar to each other but I think Hazmat doesn’t fit anybody’s idea of a normal band. We are not one ecosystem” says Schuman. The band includes men and women of all ages, blacks and whites, rock and jazz musicians. The diversity is a reflection of Schuman’s wide range of interests. “I think that’s an important ingredient to what the band is. I pick people who wouldn’t naturally go together. People who have a very different background from me and from each other.”
And indeed, band members have all contributed different aspects of the American musical experience Reeds player Steve Elson toured with Johnny Otis and then went on to work with David Bowie for many years. Guitarist Michaela Gomez is a veteran of the rich Brooklyn trad jazz scene. Trumpet player Pam Fleming has toured with Burning Spear (and smoked weed with Fela in Lagos) Accordion player and singer Rachelle Garniez has worked with Jack White and written for musical theater. Erik Della Penna has toured and recorded with Natalie Merchant for over a decade, as well as worked with Joan Baez and Joan Osborne. Drummer Tim Keiper has spent years playing with Vieux Farka Toure, Cyro Baptista and the Dirty Projectors. He has visited Mali numerous times to study calabash and N’goni.
Hazmat’s only other original member, along with Schuman, is tuba player Joseph Daley. “Joseph was my guru in a way because he saw something in the kind of raw band leader that I was; he saw something that we could do.”
Joseph Daley is a native New Yorker, born in Harlem to a West Indian family and raised on the Lower East Side. As a teenager he started playing out with Latin musicians such as Monguito Santamaria and Jerry Gonzalez. He went on to work with some of the most influential artists of the past forty years including Sam Rivers, Charlie Haden’s Liberation Orchestra, Taj Mahal and Howard Johnson.
The heteroclite nature of the band remains one of its most defining characteristic – and perhaps its main driver.  The sense of creative freedom and disregard for constraining rules that permeates Hazmat Modine’s music is particularly evident on their latest album, which Schuman calls “the product of a maturation of a kind of musical journey” “’
“I think our band is like a really good NYC diner” concludes Schuman. “The food comes from every tradition you can think of, but in the end it’s really the ultimate American comfort food.”

You've never heard a blues record like this!! Packed with 18 tunes, some Old favorites and Some new classics!!"This was the most fun I've had in years" I hope you dig the groove!! Thanks Teddy Wender/
When I first heard the blues I was hooked. I remember Joe Berger and I taking the bus to Flushing to the only record store that sold blues records. That's when I discovered the genius of Ray Charles. My uncle, Sidney Feller was his arranger and conductor and great friend. When I finally met Ray I told him that I'd been stealing his licks. He said "That's okay son, that's what I did too!" I included his "Hallelujah I Love Her So" on the Blue CD. I had the great luck to play with Albert King  years  ago. I covered his classic, "Personal Manager" as well. I finally got the chance to cover some of my all time favorites the "JazzMatiK" way. Also on the Blue CD are some a brand-new originals. Check out the iPhone solo on "Come Back Baby". The JazzMatiK crew laid down the best tracks to date, some featuring blues great Michael Powers, The Blue CD continues the "JazzMatiK" journey with so much more to come.
Hope you dig the groove!

Stay tuned for "JazzMatiK" Goes Country.

Wild T & the Spirit is a Canadian blues rock band, fronted by guitarist Toney Springer.
Formed in 1990 by Springer with bassist Brian Dickie and drummer Danny Bilan (formerly of Moxy), the band released its Warner Bros. debut album, 'Love Crazy', in 1991. Bassist Kojo Ferguson toured with the band in support of 'Love Crazy' , appearing in the video for "Midnight Blues". Nazeem Lakay soon replaced Brian Dickie on bass.
The following year, Springer was invited to play guitar on David Bowie's album Black Tie White Noise. Following that album and tour, Wild T & the Spirit released their second Warner Bros. album, 'Givin' Blood', in 1993, and the band toured Canada as a supporting act for Bon Jovi to promote the album. 'Givin' Blood' earned a Juno Award nomination for Best Hard Rock Album at the 1994 Juno Awards, and gave the band a Canadian chart hit with "Loveland".
In the latter half of the 1990s, Springer spend time in Chicago, Ill. performing as a sideman with various blues artists. Springer returned to Toronto and the band continued to play concert venues throughout Eastern Canada with new members, bassist Chas Laurie and former Frozen Ghost drummer John Bouvette. In 2000, band released the new album 'Strange Modern'. Chaz Laurie left the band and was replaced by bassist Guenther Kapelle (Chris Antonik Band, Todd Wolfe).
The band followed up with 'True Bliss' on Bullseye/Taxim Records in 2004, with bassist Guenther Kapelle. Jeff Healey, Carole Pope, and keyboardist Peter Nunn (Honeymoon Suite, Gowan) also appeared on 'True Bliss' as guest musicians. The band began a busy tour schedule throughout Canada, USA, UK and Europe. In 2008 the band released the album 'Fender Bender' on Jazzhaus Records and continued on with their heavy tour schedule. The new album was received well by fans and critiques alike. The band has just released a new album in 2015 called 'Live'. A pure live album recorded in Toronto, Canada that best describes the band.
The current lineup consists of Springer, bassist Guenther Kapelle and drummer Dave Langguth (Kim Mitchell, Nelly Furtado, Gilby Clarke).

Tony "Wild T" Springer has hung with the best of them. David Bowie, Jeff Healey, Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Jay Leno, David Letterman and Arsenio Hall are just some of the musical acts and personalities that have been blown away by Wild T's guitar.
Wild T is originally from Tunapuna, Trinidad. Though one may find similarities to Jimi Hendrix, ironically it was T's first exposure to Steve Howe and classic Yes that inspired him to take up guitar.
Moving to Toronto, Canada, T quickly gained a reputation on the local club circuit. Since then he has recorded two albums (Love Crazy 1991 and Givin' Blood 1995) with his own group, Wild T and the Spirit for Warner Brothers. He has also recorded an album (Black Tie, White Noise) with David Bowie and has appeared with Bowie on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman and the Arsenio Hall Show.
He has toured with Bon Jovi and Deep Purple throughout North America and has performed thousands of club shows. In '99 he was asked to portray Jimi Hendrix in Daydream Believers - The Monkees Story because of his resemblance and showmanship.

11 new guitar driven blues/rock songs, reminiscent of the British reinvention of the blues in the late sixties and early seventies.
Guitarist Barry Goudreau, former member of Boston, recently announced the formation of his new band Barry Goudreau’s Engine Room.The blues/rock outfit includes his former RTZ bandmates Brian Maes on lead vocals and keyboards, as well as Tim Archibald on bass. Both Maes and Archibald were members of Peter Wolf’s House Party Five, playing on two of his records and touring the world extensively.The band is rounded out with “Old” Tony Depietro on drums and Mary Beth Maes,Terri O’Soro and Joanie Cicatelli on background vocals.
The CD covers the whole spectrum of blues and rock, from the stripped down blues of “All Mine” to the all out rock assault of “Need”. Longtime friend of Goudreau’s and legendary bluesman James Montogomery, sits in on harp for Layin’ it Down {In Beantown}. The record was produced by Maes in his studio with Goudreau recording the guitar tracks in his own home studio.“Brian was able to step up and fill the creative void left by Brad Delp’s passing, I couldn’t have done it without him” says Goudreau.
Barry describes his approach to the development of the CD. “I wanted to look back to the acts of the late sixties and early seventies when they were reinventing the blues in new and exciting ways”. I learned to play lead guitar playing along with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band’s records and was then turned on to Jeff Beck, Led Zeppelin and other English acts kicking it up with big guitars and big drum sounds. The Allman Brothers, Delaney and Bonnie and Derek and the Dominos were also big influences on my playing style. I think we achieved that feel on this record”.

"Bourbon Jones was originally founded in 1993 by Long Beach residents Chris Hanlin, Mario Barmosca, Mikey Meyer and Anthony Arvisu. After touring extensively throughout the Midwest, deep South, and West Coast, the band settled into a now legendary four year Sunday afternoon residency at the Blue Cafe in Long Beach. Over the years, many musicians came to sit in: Rocco DeLucca, Hook Herrera, Bernie Pearl, Guitar Wooten, legendary Louisiana harpist Lazy Lester, and many former members of such bands as War, the Blasters, Fiona Apple, and the James Harman band.
The whole thing started with me and Barmosca. It was 1992, and I had just moved back down to Long Beach after a disastrous relationship up in LA. I had no band, no girl, no car, and few friends. For awhile I slept on people's couches until I could get an apartment. I was really starting over. All this made me pretty depressed. I wanted to make music, but I didn’t know what direction to take. I really just wanted to play some blues.
We were 4 years into making music the Bourbon Jones way when the idea of doing a 'gospel' record was introduced. Barmosca grabbed the bull by the balls and threw us all aboard The Glory Train. Approximately 1year in songwriting and rehearsing (mostly the 5 hours gig every Sunday at The Blue Cafe) with production guidance by Stephen Hodges readied us for a long day of tracking at Capitol Studio B. Fourteen songs were tracked live in a ten hour session, a couple of overdubs and mixing for a few days at Jabbz in Long Beach and here you have it. Far from being a religious record Glory Train is in the tradition of Alan Lomax, a musical journey to the promised land" ~  Chris Hanlin/
