An international quintet dedicated to the music of Steve Lacy, the Whammies boast a direct connection to the late saxophonist-composer through his former student Jorrit Djikstra (alto sax, analog electronics) and the redoubtable Hans Bennink, Lacy's drummer in the '80s. Raucous yet respectful, the Whammies remain true to the composer's spirit while taking his tunes for a more effusive spin. Pandelis Karayorgis (piano), Jeb Bishop (trombone), and Nate McBride (trombone) fill out this brash, boisterous brigade whose recent album was one of 2012's underheard delights.
