New York-based jazz quartet Sex Mob are coming to Warsaw to launch their latest album at a one-night-only performance as part of the Jazz Era concert series.

Sex Mob, who were voted the Best Beyond Group and Best Record in a prestigious poll in Down Beat magazine, will play at the Palladium club, performing tracks from a new album entitled Circus, Cinema and Spaghetti—Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota.

Jazz Era director Dionizy Pi±tkowski describes Sex Mob as an elegant, old-school quartet made up of world-famous musicians. “They are firmly established in contemporary culture, easily moving from postmodern waltzes to stunning free jazz and cheerful hits from movies,” said Pi±tkowski. “This is perhaps what makes Sex Mob concerts so spectacular and engaging.”

The band’s frontman is slide trumpet virtuoso Steven Bernstein, who also writes and arranges music. Bernstein has led many other bands and artistic projects that push the boundaries of music conventions. In the 1990s, he teamed up with The Lounge Lizards, a legendary avant-garde band from New York City. The Lounge Lizards helped launch the careers of prominent musicians who over the past several decades have had a significant impact on contemporary jazz and musical improvisation. They include John Lurie, who formed the band, Arto Lindsay, Roy Nathanson, John Medeski and Bernstein himself. During his time with The Lounge Lizards, Bernstein wrote scores to movies such as Get Shorty, Clay Pigeons and Fishing With John and John Lurie’s television productions.

Sex Mob’s latest album, Circus, Cinema and Spaghetti—Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota, features theme songs from Federico Fellini films, including Amarcord, La Dolce Vita and La Strada.
