I Like This: GoGo Penguin

Jazzy stuff isn’t really my sort of thing, but I do make exceptions.  Medeski, Martin & Wood, for example. Then there’s GoGo Penguin, a jazz-meets-electronica outfit from Manchester capable of creating instrumental jams like this from V2.0, an album that was nominated for the Mercury Prize.  They’re currently allowing fans to download and remix of of their tracks. Details here.
