About Sex Mob
Steven Bernstein’s Sex Mob have given themselves one task: to make modern jazz fun. They’ve pulled it off for the most part, thanks to the trendy practice of covering non-jazz tunes in a jazzy style (ABBA, Nirvana, Buffalo Springfield, a slew of James Bond themes).
The primary inspiration behind their latest project Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti (Sex Mob Plays Fellini: The Music of Nino Rota), Sex Mob's first studio recording in seven years, can be attributed to a quote from legendary Italian director Federico Fellini, who said, "My films, like my life, are summed up in circus, spaghetti, sex, and cinema." Bernstein's idiosyncratic arrangements of Nino Rota's memorable scores for Fellini's films encompass myriad styles, ranging from the spry exuberance of early Dixieland to the exquisite beauty of Old World balladry. There seems to be no style of music that Bernstein and Sex Mob can’t thrillingly reinvent.
