Chicago’s Mucca Pazza marches to the beat of a different drum. Wielding homemade headgear amps, they channel everything from Bartok to 19th century marches.
In this podcast we talk with Mucca Pazza sousaphone player Mark Messing about how the group came together in Chicago, the balance of embracing improvisation while keeping the music tight and the joys of not being chained to a mike stand.
