Ep 32 - Song 4: "Bowlingsmith" by Jack Lion



"Jack Lion’s members unearth the early ’00s interest in connections between jazz and electronic music and refashion it for this current era. Striking a balance between jazz composition, down-tempo break-beats, and hazy atmospherics they have made their mark as one of Iowa City’s headiest and most adventurous bands."
- from Ben Kieffer on the Iowa Public Radio website

"In jazz, the ability to dig into emotions of the moment is one of the genre’s most defining features. With a rich history of improvisation, it might perplex some why jazz musicians would dabble in the more measured genre of electronic music— yet Jack Lion has brazenly fused the two styles together."
- from Isaac Hamlet in The Daily Iowan

Lineup:
Brian Lewis Smith - trumpet, keyboard, and production
Drew Morton - bass, keyboard, synths
Justin LeDuc - drums, samples, and SPDS
