Dead Cat BounceDead Cat Bounce saxophonist/bandleader Matt Steckler's compositions are compelling enough on their own, but it's how they are arranged and delivered in this band that gives this music so much punch, depth and life. With a saxophone quartet out in front and a rhythm section that swings like crazy, they create a sound that is both robust and beautifully subtle. Yeah, the horns get blazing hot, but just as equally potent is the fantastic interplay and conversation the players are having.
Check out these tracks from their latest, Chance Episodes (out September 27th on Cuneiform Records), to see what I mean. Also check out some additional info on the band and upcoming tour dates below...

Living The Dream - Dead Cat Bounce by BK Music PR

Drawing inspiration from blues and funk, as well as Caribbean, Brazilian, and West African traditions, DCB's fourth studio album, Chance Episodes (September 27 release on Cuneiform Records) presents a cosmopolitan and international sound, all in a stunning interpretation of Steckler's original arrangements.
