The Star Chamber is a wickedly weird and wonderful record. It could be the soundtrack for some acid stained Truffaut film of a Philip Marlowe story. It could be the lost soundtrack for a noir film as envisioned by a collaboration of Mingus and Monk. We’ll leave the comparisons in your hands. The Industrial Jazz Group is a new-fangled amalgamation of 50s, 60s and 70s acoustic jazz (bebop, hard bop, cool jazz, free jazz, modal jazz, third stream, etc.) with the kind of sounds, effects and compositional approaches often associated with the avant garde, filtered through a sometimes absurd sense of humor and a love for melody. The group’s music reveals the influence of Monk, Charles Mingus, Frank Zappa, George Russell, Raymond Scott, Neal Hefti, Elmo Hope, Bob Graettinger, Jimmy Giuffre, Bernard Herrmann, Alex North, Ornette Coleman, Kurt Weill, Duke Ellington, Olivier Messiaen, Henry Mancini, Gil Evans, Henry Threadgill, Edgar Varese, and just a touch of the soundtrack from Mannix. This is the third release for Andrew Durkin and the Industrial Jazz Group and his second on Innova (the first is NPR favorite "City of Angles")

"...The group name is only misleading if it leaves you expecting full-on metallurgical ugliness instead of machine-tooled modern jazz compositions of exquisite precision and strong aesthetic appeal. Outstanding soloists- saxophonist Beth Schenck and trumpeter Phil Rodriguez- and a crisp, punchy ensemble sound anchored on bassist Aaron Cohen and drummer Aaron Mclendon..."
