Exploding Star Orchestra

 Continuing with the jazz theme, here's a group that you can actually see perform today. Exploding Star Orchestra are an avant-garde jazz orchestra from Chicago. At the tail end of last year they released a new record titled Stars Have Shapes and I must say it's fantastic. I haven't encountered many modern jazz artists that I have liked, but this falls right in line with that free form experimental Bitches Brew-esque jazz that I love so much. This isn't you're grandpa's jazz band, this is some far out shit right here.
