Moon Hooch will change the way you feel about saxophones—assuming you have a problem with that smooth, smooth alto or tenor sax sound that creams up a song. (See: “Careless Whisper,” “Smooth Operator,” and anything by Kenny G.) Brooklyn trio Moon Hooch are fueled by two sax players (accompanied by a drummer), and while their arsenal includes tenors, it also features soprano, bass, and baritone saxophones, as well as contrabass clarinet, synthesizers, and electro wind instruments of their own devising. And they wield their woodwinds so far from traditional standards that you often can’t tell that a sax is being blown at all. They incorporate gadgets and pedals and deliver muscular instrumental compositions that are somehow both vaguely jazzy and dance oriented (I’ve seen their style referred to as “brass house” and that’s not a far off). Human Ottoman and Ayo Dot & the Uppercuts warm up the Thursday date of this two-night stand; Biddidat and Swindler get the honors on Friday.
