Neslort:March of the Native Alien
Neslort ( www.neslort.com ) is organic alternative jazz / rock featuring the compositions of trombone wizard, Rick Trolsen (formerly of Bonerama,) this aggregation dashes through a myriad of styles, hidden behind a fat New Orleans groove, undetected by the unsuspecting ear. Neslort originally formed back in 1991, played around New Orleans and made 3 consecutive performances at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, but then disbanded in 1998. Back by popular demand, the group has re-formed and currently has a new CD, "Mystical Scam" releases in November 2010 from Lort Music and Threadhead Records.. The music of Neslort pulls from straight ahead rock, middle-eastern, jazz, funk, as well as some group improvisations scattered in amongst the compositions. The music is fun, exhilarating, challenging, and new. It's certainly not meant to be background music!
