11 Acorn Lane – Crazy Cat

11 Acorn Lane’s track “Crazy Cat” is an homage to all the Jazz musicians who took their axe and left their hometown for New York City – as they did, coming from England and Switzerland respectively.

While “Crazy Cat” includes many musical nods from Big Band to Esquivel to EDM, two have a special place in their hearts: 11 Acorn Lane’s humble reverence to the vocalese might of The Manhattan Transfer and their loving little tribute to Supersax and by extension their hero Charlie Parker. Their favorite crazy cat is really a bird.

Now enjoy the new 11 Acorn Lane single with loads of triplet feeling, detailed arrangements, wild horns and a great sounding piece of music from the Yardbird Suite lovers!
