2007 Year End Survey | The Jazz Guys


Since Eva just tapped The Jazz Guys for her song of the year, I thought it would be a good time to spring their response to the survey on the snowy masses of Vermont.

If you haven't heard it yet, The Jazz Guys recently completed and released a new eight-song EP called So Moped PureƩ. It's less power pop than their 2006 release A Blessing in Disguise but if you are a fan of The Kinks, you'll love the sound of this prog pop disc. The sweet thing is that they've made the entire album available for free on their site. Plus, you can grab their earlier works there too. There's all your Christmas shopping right there. Done.

You'll also notice that The Jazz Guys have revamped their website. The hot new feature? A comic about them. Nice. Let's hope that strip is updated regularly.

Lastly, bassist, Herb van der Poll, has a fine blog called Transistor Blast that you should check out.

Let's get on with the survey.

Ooh, Ooh -- new Jazz Guys! I had no idea.

I wish Herb would update his blog more; it's one of my fave reads. You hearing me, Herb?

I think we all could use more of Herb in our lives.

Yeh, I don't know where his response is. Perhaps he'll discuss his top choices for the year on Transistor Blast.
