The first Grubic’s Cube happened in 2009 at Hotel Congress in Tucson, Arizona. A four-piece jazz band was placed inside a cube and asked to play “The Girl from Ipanema” ad nauseam. Passers-by were given balloons to inflate and place in the cube with the intent of stopping the music by immobilizing the musicians.
A new version of the Grubic’s Cube will be performed in the Fall of 2011 in France.
About a month ago, Jazz Telephone was lucky enough to do a live broadcast on the local radio station, KXCI. They have a podcast in their archives if you are curious. One song they did not include in the podcast was something I did with another band, The Love Dogs, almost 30 years ago. Here is Jazz Telephone’s version- Universal Andean.
