The Black Market Trust - Video Promo

The Black Market Trust is an American pop/vocal jazz band whose current release II combines the sounds of the great American crooners and vocal groups with the romantic Eastern European gypsy fire of jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Consisting of five world class musicians who have traveled the globe recording and performing on the world’s biggest stages and with music’s most renowned artists, The Black Market Trust capitalizes on their experience and pedigree to deliver a sophomore album that brings a new and exciting sound to 12 tried and true classic songs.

The band’s all-instrumental debut studio album, The Black Market Trust, released in 2012, is widely regarded as a milestone in the gypsy jazz world. Through the debut album, lead guitarist Jeffrey Scott Radaich gained notoriety for his songwriting, as well as his technical prowess and musicality. He has been touted as one of the most innovative and influential American acoustic gypsy jazz guitarists today. With their first release, the band established themselves as leaders and innovators by combining pop “Brill Building” sensibilities with the traditional sound of Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France Quintet. The animated video featuring their song Referential Integrity has garnered over one million YouTube views.

From 2009 to 2015 bassist Brian Netzley along with guitarist Radaich, were members of the groundbreaking Gonzalo Bergara Quartet, whose rapid rise in the jazz world was cemented by twice headlining the prestigious Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine, France (the final resting place of Jazz icon Django Reinhardt). After spending six formative years as supporting cast members with Bergara, Netzley and Radaich decided the time was right to focus on a new project that would stay true to their love of Django but combine it with a new American flavor. Keeping the core trio line-up from the first Black Market Trust album of Radaich, Netzley and Chris Irwin on rhythm guitar, they rounded out the lineup with LA based session and touring drummer Brandon Laws and Nick Coventry, a Tucson, Arizona violin hero/Eastern European folk music expert. In addition to the new musicians they also decided to add another new element to the Black Market Trust sound; Vocals…

Merging their love of everything from The Mills Brothers to The Beach Boys, Sinatra to Lennon/McCartney, the band began to arrange lead and 3 part vocal harmony lines to 12 of their favorite Great American Songbook standards. Using Radaich’s emotive, light baritone as the focus and surrounding it with Netzley’s pure tenor and Irwin’s rich low-end, the band’s sound is a synthesis of two distinctly different vibes- one of a gypsy campfire, the other a slick metropolitan nightclub- into a cohesive, stylish sound.

With II, The Black Market Trust has created an organic new sound that is daring, fresh and exciting yet somehow still familiar and inviting. Combining old world romance with new world form, The Black Market Trust brings you a simple, elegant and well-defined classic sound.
