Mike Irwin Johnson started The 8 Legged Monster in 2007 to bring an element to the San Francisco Jazz community that has been lacking in recent years: the excitement of densely arranged small group big-band music which honors tradition and encourages exploration. Since its conception, the 8 Legged Monster has been turning the heads of SF’s Jazz community. The arrangements offer the classic sound of early Bebop with an entirely new attitude and approach to harmony. 8LM has such a distinct sound because they encompass all the musical styles that the jazz lineage has passed through, from swing to free-jazz, yet they have an entirely original and fresh sound. They have already become a favorite group among the jazz musicians in SF, and they’re hailed as one of the most entertaining and fun new bands to see.
