and Electric Beethoven

Hatched from the visionary (and delightfully demented) mind of bass pioneer Reed Mathis (Billy [Kreutzmann] & The Kids, Tea Leaf Green, Steve Kimock and Friends, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey), this project embodies the genesis of a new musical genre – CDM (classical dance music). This entirely fresh improvisational journey is built upon the foundation of Beethoven’s symphonies which have been rearranged by Mathis. The band incorporates funky, dance-inducing flourishes while channeling the essence of Ludwig’s original intention from centuries ago. The result is sure to boggle the mind and enrapture the synapses. Fellow intrepid travelers include drummer Jay Lane (Primus, Further, Ratdog, Doobie Decibel System), keyboardist Todd Stoops (Kung Fu, Raq) and young guitar phenom Clay Welch. Behold the dawn of a new musical era!
