Mix swingin’ grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, acoustic western sensibilities and tons of fun and you have only begun to describe Cow Bop. Formed in 2003 by internationally-acclaimed jazz guitarist Bruce Forman, the cowboy jazz and western bebop band has toured extensively throughout the world, exciting audiences with their unique brand of music.
The band’s collective experience crosses the spectrum of American music, from the hottest jazz and the coolest swing to the most down-home honky-tonk. Comfortable in diverse settings, from Carnegie Hall to roadside taverns, the band always hits the stage with an electrifying and entertaining assortment of music and frolic. Along with Bruce Forman on guitar, the band features PintoPammy on vocals, whose talent and experiences range from big band swing, old-time country and musical theater, and mutli-instrumentalist David Wise, whose sax and trumpet playing takes you from the streets of New Orleans to the hottest blues and the coolest jazz. Put that on top of a rhythm section of Alex Frank, bass, and Jake Reed, drums, that are as swingin’ and rockin’ as a rodeo bronc but as sure-footed as a prized pack mule, and you get Cow Bop.
In 2004, Cow Bop won the Route 66 Challenge, traveling the length of the storied road having departed with a mere $100 and no scheduled gigs. Their debut CD, Swingin’ Out West, released in 2004, charted in four separate genres. Since then, Route 66, Too Hick for the Room, along with their newest CD: Cowlifornia Swing, have delighted critics around the world. The recordings feature songs and musicians from across the wide spectrum of the American musical palette.
Along with numerous appearances at esteemed nightclubs and concert venues, Cow Bop has also been featured at the Montreal & Monterey Jazz Festivals, the Sisters Folk Festival, as well as the Elko, Heber City, Monterey and Santa Clarita Cowboy Gatherings. For an extra treat, check out Bruce’s guitar work featured in Clint Eastwood’s Academy-Award winning film, Million Dollar Baby.
