about

Our song "Crazy Cat" is an homage to all the Jazz musicians who took their axe and left their hometown for New York City - as we did, coming from England and Switzerland respectively.

While "Crazy Cat" includes many musical nods from Big Band to Esquivel to EDM, two have a special place in our hearts: our humble reverence to the vocalese might of The Manhattan Transfer and our loving little tribute to Supersax and by extension our hero Charlie Parker. Our favorite crazy cat is really a bird.

lyrics

Crazy, crazy

Not flat, but in tune

Blow your horn man hit it
