New instrumental Garaj Mahal

Garaj Mahal’s w00t, due out September 9, is the culmination of eight years of touring, writing, jamming and working on the music. 

This is an all instrumental record with wild odd-time pieces and slow grooves and everything in between. Featured on the album are two compositions for each member, as well as the recording debut of the incredible new MOOG Guitar.

w00t juxtaposes serious jazz based writing and playing with a world music sensibilty, and a great sense of fun and sense of humor. Serious jazz instrumental music often takes itself too seriously….Garaj Mahal does not…
