Babko Group - Misfits
composes, arranges and performs on all the 9 extended cuts found
on Misfits of Silence, the first release by his Los Angeles
based, contemporary acoustic jazz quartet.
After becoming a young local jazz hero in South Florida,
Babko returned home to LA and began performing as a sideman
with drummer Ralph Penland's Polygon, Rhombus' artists
Suburban Alphabet, Impulse!/Sony artists, Black/Note, and
various other LA jazz luminaries. At the same time, Babko
carried his own group, bringing audiences to standing ovations
at theaters, festivals and clubs throughout Southern California.
Recorded at pianist David Benoit's studio (with help from
Benoit), his recording features a group that includes both
young and established LA jazz artists.
The Miami Herald expressed "....astonishment at the young Jeff Babko!"
