Mad Satta And A New Wave Of Jazz And Soul
The New York band Mad Satta is part of a new generation of jazz and soul musicians.
The genre is often referred to as neo-jazz, a genre that, perhaps like the origins of jazz, does not have a clear definition. It mixes classic jazz with soul, funk, rock and blues. The eight-member Mad Satta came up with their own definition of neo-jazz, and they are on tour to spread the "cool" at festivals across the country.
Host Frank Stasio talks with three members of the band: Joanna Teters on vocals, Ben Carr on the bass guitar, and Kevin Theodore on the keyboard, and they play live.
