Hey headbanging hepcats, this week’s way-out session explores the intertwined upper echelons of jazz and metal, where swing and shred interact in a high-speed freak scene of heaviness. Sax-soaked madness from pioneers Painkiller, Flying Luttenbachers, Ephel Death, and Yakuza, plus modern masters Shining (NO), Ihsahn, Convulsif, and Leftyfish. Get real gone—and know your Roots!

Past episodes are available on-demand online from SiriusXM.com.
The drums of the final Usurpress album was all about that jazz!
Thanks for this program! My musical “roots” started with Jazz, but I got hooked on Metal in my early teens, so this was a fantastic show from my perspective. One other band to consider if you ever modify this show for the future: The Swedish progmetal band Pain of Salvation integrates a lot of Jazz chords, singing, and stylistic elements into there songs, especially from their earlier albums such as The Perfect Element. Much respect for Bloody Roots! One of the best on SiriusXM
Was really hoping for some Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.
I just listen to this episode it was cool the music reminded me of the the Locust but with a sax player
