ALTERNATE TAKES is a ten piece instrumental jazz group, that has been performing unique "alternative" versions of classic jazz repertoire for the last 15 years. ALTERNATE TAKES generates a distinctive sound, rarely heard... a cross between a small combo and a big band. From funk/rock interpretations of jazz classics to repertoire not typically performed by jazz musicians. The music is first and foremost accessible to any audience and yet oozes that hip and cool feel that makes modern jazz what it is...
Driven by a hip rhythm section that lives "in the groove", the wondrous sound of five horns alternately weave melodic lines and punctuate time. Cohesive ensemble playing and exciting solos are hallmarks of an ALTERNATE TAKES performance. These elements fuse together into a complex yet accessible sound. The repertoire includes a large selection of interpreted standards from the Great American Songbook and many other gems including some originals. ALTERNATE TAKES is the embodiment of a philosophy that is as old as jazz itself: great jazz is the result of a collaborative process involving every member of the group exchanging ideas and working together.
