Banan the bomb


EXPERIMENTAL jazz orchestra Jaga Jazzist release Bananfleur Overalt, an appealing new EP from their 2010 album One-Armed Bandit, next Monday.
As the release carries a few tracks from the full-length - Toccata, One-Armed Bandit and Bananfleur Overalt itself - so as with the original the Norwegians' sound melds jazz, electronica and rock with a mind-bending array of other genres.
And added to the originals are a smattering of remixes, the jewel in the crown being an 11-and-a-half Prins Thomas working of Bananfleur Overalt, which turns the original's jazz meandering into a lounge disco classic.
Although not worth picking up unless you have their recent LP in your collection, nevertheless this is a timely reminder of the expansive work of Jaga Jazzist.
