Jazz Punks, ‘Smashups’
You can take Jazz Punks at face value — they are what they say they are. Saxophonist Robby Elfman, pianist Danny Kastner, guitarist Sal Polcino, bassist Mike Polcino, and drummer Hugh Elliott blend jazz standards with rock anthems and perform them with a punk attitude. Nothing is sacrosanct. And what fun this is: an album’s worth of jazz-rock mash-ups.
