In the relatively short time that's passed since their 2011 debut, Canadian ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD has stacked up a pretty cool list of collaborators. But as impressive as their partnerships may be, BBNG wouldn't even be on our radars if it weren't for their mastery of the instruments that they play. Take their latest single for example, a downtempo groove called "Chompy's Paradise."
This delicious slice of '80s smooth jazz is another fine example of just how well BBNG players Matthew Tavares, Chester Hanson, Alex Sowinski and Leland Whitty fit together. But as the title suggests, the highlight of this particular piece is newest member Whitty (aka "Chompy" or "Chompy Lee") and his seductively captivating sax work. So it comes as no surprise that he snagged the leading man role for the music video, a suspense-building tale of a man trying to save his beloved saxophone from imminent destruction. What is surprising, however, is the amusing plot twist that may make you think twice about how you treat the inanimate objects in your life.
