Grapefruit Moon: The Songs of Tom Waits is Southside's tribute to one of his favorite songwriters, but also a pet sound: big band music. The idea to marry the brassy, ballsy sound of a big band to Tom Waits' cinematic, character-driven songs has been sitting in the back of Southside's mind for sometime.

Jazz, Post Bop, Big Band | Label: Smalls Records

he basement of 75 Christopher Street was a jazz impresario’s dream. The underutilized 10,000 square feet of the sleepy Fat Cat billiards had enough space to build an entire jazz club within it. For Mitch Borden, whose tiny Smalls club had people lining up down the street to get in, a spillover club seemed like just the thing. He struck a deal with Fat Cat’s owners, got some acoustic panels and a bank of box fans, and took the "square" out of the square-feet by populating the space with some of the best tchochkes ever salvaged from a dumpster. The resulting club played host to some of the scene’s greatest acts and some of our best recordings.

Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts returns to his jazz roots with the Danish Radio Big Band on this album, recorded live in 2010. Watts and the band rehearsed for four days before playing a concert at the newly opened Danish Radio Concert Hall in Copenhagen which was taped for broadcast by Danish National Radio. After several years, a souvenir of that historic gig is now available. Watts is one of the great ambassadors of jazz and while every jazz lover will relish the performance, his involvement may bring jazz to the attention of some Stones fans who are not even sure if they like jazz.

"The Big Band Theory", das sind Energie, funky Grooves und jede Menge Lebensfreude. Die fünf Jungs aus Augsburg bezeichnen ihren Stil gern als „Pornographic Funk“ und fassen damit ihren Anspruch, Jazz mit Einflüssen aus Electro und Rock auf innovative Weise zu kombinieren, in einer Phrase zusammen.
