Bohren & The Club of Gore
Darkjazz pioneers from Germany Bohren are considered the grandfathers of Funeral Jazz. They are the reference point for all bands that want to create in this style.If you want the best look no further then Sunset Mission or Black Earth.
The albums have spent the majority of their lives out of print until just last year when PIAS repressed them in large quantity.
Aesthetically the album artwork carries a death metal feel to it (especially Black Earth, with its black skull emblazoned across the cover). The music however is smooth slow deep and dark jazz, suitable for the most noir of smoke-filled paris bars after midnight.
