Do y'all remember alex skolnick from Testament?? He currently has an interesting Jazz project. Check out his website:
They do Jazz versions of classic rock hits like war pigs and tom sawyer. They are pretty good. Check out the 'mercury retrograde' video on their website as well.
THis is a great treat for those of us who now appreciate jazz but grew up in the glory days of San Fransisco bay area heavy metal bands (i.e. Exodus, Death Angel, Metallica, Testament). It's nice to see how Alex has evolved to be a very diverse musician. He can still play metal as well
