New York City’s instrumental trio Big Lazy has thrived for 20 years, creating film music and playing their singular brand of crime jazz and highway twangfrom dive bars to The Whitney Museum of American Art. Simultaneously noir and pastoral, gothic and modern, the trio conjures images from big sky country to seedy back rooms with deftness and a cinematic clarity.
“Big Lazy, the elegantly gritty instrumental trio led by the extraordinary guitarist Stephen Ulrich…plays stunningly beautiful music that evokes everythingfrom truckers' romps to the haunting film scores of Bernard Hermann." --The New Yorker
"The Big Apple Crème de la Crème.” - Robert Christgau
