Doctor Magnum

Charlie Button (guitar)
Jerome Steele (guitar)
Steve Keator (keyboard)
Rob Colpoys (drums)

While combining elements of hip-hop and jazz, Doctor Magnum eschews the directionless noodling often associated with improvised guitar music in favor of engaged interaction. Self-described as "the mess left behind after a drunken Craigslist orgy between Led Zeppelin, the Jazz Messengers, and the Wu-Tang Clan," their intricate arranging, blistering improvisations, and progressive sonic palate define a strikingly original brand of instrumental music.
