Jazz Mutants Tray Card.pdf
The Jazz Mutants were a side project band I assembled in 2002, consisting of Kirk Scott, Joe Regier, Kyle King, and myself (Steve Unruh). We all brought tunes and ideas, and threw things together remarkably quickly (basically, 1 weekend plus a couple of overdubs later). Due to the nature of the band's influences and the way this album was recorded, the Jazz Mutants album has a very "jam band" feel to it. This album is quite different from my other material (and quite different from Kirk and Joe's other material, come to think of it), but a pretty worthy listen, I think!
The original mixes were never quite as good as we wanted them to be, but thanks to modern mixing software, I was able to clean them up significantly in 2007. (This was actually quite a tedious process... ugh... but the end result is hopefully worth it!) We, the band, have decided to give the album a permanent home for free download here at SteveUnruh.com.
