Endangered Blood - Work Your Magic
“Work Your Magic” is the second recording by Endangered Blood, featuring drummer Jim Black, bassist Trevor Dunn, alto saxophone/bass clarinetist Oscar Noriega, and tenor saxophone/clarinetist Chris Speed. Their 2011 self-titled debut was a huge success among critics and listeners, launching the band on extensive touring (including a performance on the renowned NPR Tiny Desk Concerts) and thus taking their already fiery interplay to new levels. “Work Your Magic” reflects the band’s growth as a powerful unit as well as its new level of compositional ambition.
“We are a neighborhood band, all living within three blocks of each other. Initially we played for an ailing friends' benefit concert and by demand we continued to perform together, developing a book of music built around the band's sound and dynamic energy. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty with the music and have a great time making fun of each other.” EBlood
