ZOZOPHONIC ORCHESTRA – That Thing

Between pre-war blues and backyard grooves, the Zozophonic Orchestra continues to explore their “urban country blues” sound, straight out of the ’20s but boosted by distortions and urban rhythms.

It’s also about the bandleader, Manouche Fournier, passionate about African-American music of all kinds and a trumpet-player who picked up the guitar and learned to sing along the way. But mostly it’s about a group of virtuoso musicians trained in jazz but always ready to take on new vibes.

Collectively, the members of the Zozophonic Orchestra take the Deep South blues in a whole new direction. The humidity of the Caribbean meets New Orleans funk to create a modern sound, mixing committed lyrics with angry improvisations.

From the overflowing Mississippi to a broken-down subway, you’ll swear you’re listening to Ben Harper jamming with Beck & The Meters.
