Riot Jazz Live at Big Chill 2009

RIOT JAZZ BRASS BAND - Live @ Big Chill 2009 by Riot Jazz

Riot Jazz are 15 piece band who came together with idea of getting jazz to capture the hearts of Manchester’s alternative music and night scene and letting them take Manchester back to the old school way of music when it was a group of friends, couple of instruments and a good time, was what music was about. Bringing forward live music and free expression in a unique mix of rhythm’ n ‘ blues, hip-hop, funk, soul and aggressive jazz.

The combination of shiny metal objects on the front of a stage bursting with life, soul and sound started as an obscure ambition and a novelty to most but soon captured the tapping feet of locals in Manchester’s great music haunts

Having the same electric sound and intensity as Young Blood Brass Band, Hot 8 Brass Band and Kashmere Stage Band the odd cover of their tracks are present in their sets, notables are Young Brass Band’s “Brooklyn,” “Camourflage” and “Nuclear Summer” and Hot 8 Brass Band’s take on “Sexual Healing.” These Big Band classics never fail to get the energy surging round any crowd and with the success of these covers they have been able to branch out and perform their own interpretations of Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name Of”, Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android,” Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me,” and Chemical Brothers’ “Saturate.” Besides this there is usually a mix of Balkan gypsy music with hiphop loops and samples, dubstep medley spice and some full dubstep covers (“Cockney Thug”) to mix it all up.

When Riot Jazz and Broke’n English hit a couple of tracks together live on stage, they freestyle and do the “who’s line is it anyway?” routine which never fails to keep the crowd happy.

This Exclusive mix was recorded live from the Red Bull Cola 'Branch and Root' experience at Big Chill which Amplify created.
