Brady McKay, firmly steeped in the tradition of the musical stage, showed up in Northern California many years back and, in fairly short order, found traditional jazz music. She put her considerable talents to work on the genre and since has compiled a record of performance that has taken her to jazz boîtes and stages and cruises around the world. She was featured with Stan Mark's River City Stomperz, then fronted the Wooden Nickel Jass Band for several years. More recently, she has free-lanced with some of the hottest talent in the business.
Here, with her new band, The Neurotypicals, Brady performs with musicians of her own choosing, including the eerily talented clarinetist Otis Mourning, guitar phenom Nahum Zdybel, the steady and versatile drummer Kit Bailey, and jazz stalwart Bill Douglass on bass. Together, these five musicians have created a sound that is at once familiar and new. Relying on traditional jazz songs and styles for much of their repertoire, The Neurotypicals keep things fresh and can be counted upon to take dips and dives in unpredictable and thoughtful ways on every set. Original songs played in traditional styles; Golden Era stand-bys reset to newer grooves; long-forgotten and re-worked favorite from the ‘60s; daring excursions into unrehearsed mayhem; and thoroughly rehearsed, impeccable arrangements, may be heard at every performance.
Not a dance band, not a “show” band, not a tribute band, nor a star vehicle – The Neurotypicals is a new band, playing good music for discriminating audiences who expect to be entertained, provoked, inspired, and charmed.
