Review By Scott Morrow,Alarm Press,December 2010

Asphalt Orchestra is a 12-piece marching ensemble that performs brass-led covers of eclectic selections as well as commissions from esteemed songwriters. The group’s self-titled debut is a luminous romp, reimagining tunes from Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, Meshuggah, and Björk with equal ease.

With matching uniforms and a diverse songbook, the group draws comparisons to Chicago’s Mucca Pazza. This NYC ensemble, however, employs choreographed moves and even more crowd interaction. If you get the chance, don’t miss them on your street.
