Michael Mueller Toc continue to amaze me. With every release, they only strengthen my suspicion that they are in fact the best band in the world.

On first listen the idea that this collaboration is a post-jazz-rock rendering of New Orleans jazz seems nonsensical, but more listens reveal otherwise. This IS N'Awlins. Post Katrina.

Toc seamlessly weave brass into their sound; the interplay is incredible. Two distinct parts; one distinct whole.

This sways, staggers, strides. And it's utterly fantastic. Favorite track: No Rag For K..

about

After a try of wildlife documentary (“The Gorilla” – 2009), dance (“You Can Dance If You Want” – 2012), sonic brushing (“Haircut” – 2014), and even the magic of wild acoustic spaces (an acoustic version of the trio, CD release soon…), Toc is now lost in the bayou and the meanders of the French Quarter, making with a cheap brass band a project which the music is probably, in the end, far from New Orleans pattern.
