Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band

For Patty, Melissa, Scotty, and Travis, it really is a family affair. This foursome stretches their biological connections through to their creative tissue as the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band (DFJB), an incomparable collective with a Jazz/Americana/Soul/Folk sound that, by all reasonable accounts, functions quite nicely, thank you. As the history of their marvelous and complex family relationships comes out in their music, it is clear that this is a community, a truly relational organism.

”Wonderful!”

Pete Seeger

“A family who plays jazz together stays together…One of the pleasant surprises on this album is that mother and daughter have their own quite distinctive and separately recognizable voice. These disparate sounds come together very well both when they solo and when they harmonize. This family obviously enjoys working together, as there's nothing stiff or reserved about the performances on this recommended album.”
