At the 2016 CMA Awards one sound burst from the stage like a thunderquake. Beyoncé performed “Daddy Lessons” accompanied by Dixie Chicks and Too Many Zooz--the New York City trio which originally recorded the song on the star’s Lemonade album—the trio bringing the sound of the street to Beyoncé’s glittering musical declaration.
Many New Yorkers found Too Many Zooz at the Union Square subway station, where the trio began busking in 2014. After one of TMZ’s videos went viral on Reddit, creating almost a million fans, sales of the band’s digital downloads and CD sales skyrocketed.
If TMZ’s music wasn’t already electrifying, Leo Pellegrino’s dance moves, which spin like a Zoot-suit wearing swinger, add visual thrills to the band’s musical mastery. A classically trained musician, Pellegrino began dancing as both expression and rebellion. What Beyoncé loved is now available to all.
Too Many Zooz’s songs are marvels of simplicity born of musical complexity. Pellegrino, Doe, and King of Sludge condense multiple--what might be considered clashing styles--into a riveting jackhammer brew. King of Sludge’s staccato eighth-note rhythms performed on a unique bass drum/cowbell/jamblock/cymbal setup forms the music’s gritty rhythmic bed. Matt Doe’s trumpet is a constant, providing melody and harmony, while Leo Pelligrino’s saxophone follows an unusual path before blasting into solo revelry. A question as to why Matt never solos results in unexpected insight.
Now see them bring the magic to Glasgow for the first time this summer.
