Composer Mina Keohane's self-titled group is undeniably jazz but draws more influences from rock and hip-hop grooves rather than the standard swing or bop styles. The Group has been steadily making a name for themselves with a fanbase in the midwest, New England, Down South and parts of Europe. The beautiful emotional pieces on the album are complemented by tunes with dissonance and edgy bass and drum grooves. There's a lot of freedom for the soloists as well as Mingus-style group improvisation. The seven-piece band consists of trumpet, alto/tenor sax, trombone, guitar, piano, bass and drums. Many of the players come from the Internationally recognized Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra. Fans of creative modern instumental music will love the Mina Keohane Group's 'Doppelganger.'
