The band Zorge was formed in September 2010 to pick up where the Tequilajazzz band left off when they broke up shortly before. Most of the band’s material is brand-new and has been created in the recent days, although, the group’s new program also includes some of the songs from Tequilajazzz that hold a special place in the author’s heart.
When it comes to style, Zorge follows the same path as the one Tequilajazzz chose during some of its most experimental creative periods. True eclecticism drives the band’s music as they mix different styles without a hint of stooping to the level of the superficial postmodern tricks or the oxymoron of “new-age.” It represents a well-balanced coexistence of various musical cultures “here and now,” even when they exist in a form of conflict.
Rough rhythmic structures, intricate jazz harmonies and the evident influence of modern and classical academic music call for the use of the tag “art,” while the post-punk past of the band members is in no way forgotten.
