Take one listen to the joy and energy of this unpredictable band and try not to get caught up in the excitement. Northern Spy's rough-and-tumble interplay meets in a place where everything is an option. Their new CD features music written in admiration of artists such as Donny Hathaway, Curtis Mayfield, Blind Willie Johnson, and Otis Redding. It’s organic, soulful, edgy music that veers happily between wide open jazz, the swing tradition, and heavy grooves.

The band (Michael Blake, bass; Jeff Lederer, sax; Jeremy "Bean" Clemons, drums) plays with intensity and fire, taking the blues and manhandling it into unexpected musical shapes.
