Banda Sinaloense de los Muertos


You’ll find several of the city’s edgier slipstream jazzers—saxophonist Oscar Noriega, trombonist Curtis Hasselbring, and drummer Jim Black—in founding trombonist Jacob Garchik’s loud and unabashedly sentimental dozen-piece group devoted to the heavy-metal, brass-driven banda sound. Self-described as NYC’s “best (and only) Mexican banda,” Los Muertos draw much of their joyously weepy repertoire from Banda el Recodo, which gave contemporary Mexican music a kick in the brass during the ’40s.
