In April of 2011, three jazz students from the Humber College in Toronto uploaded a black and white video of their highly original and astonishing “Jazz-Tribute to Odd Future and Bangladesh Bastard” on YouTube: “The Odd Future Sessions Part 1”. At last, somebody was not working with jazz using Horace Silver and Bill Evans but venturing into tracks from The Roots or Mos Def! Cool idea, which also resonated with the Odd Future crew. In October 2011, BBNG already posted a session with Tyler, the Creator. The trio quickly became a quartet with saxophonist Leland Whitty. A few albums followed, nicely numbered in Led Zeppelin and Soft Machine style, as well as collaborations Ghostface Killah, Colin Stetson and also Future Islands´ Sam Herring. Their way of switching between the genres and their provocative criticism of the curriculum in contemporary jazz studies gave rise to debate. Currently, according to “Pitchfork”: if a rapper is looking for a live band that knows how to play Morricone soundtracks with the instrumentation of “Stax Records”, BBNG is the answer.
