|Cap’n Jazz are an emo/punk band formed in the early 1990’s in Buffalo Grove, IL by high school friends Tim Kinsella (vocals), Victor Villareal (guitar), and Sam Zurick (bass), along with Tim’s younger brother Mike (drums). The group released their lone LP in the spring of 1995, and broke up while on tour later that summer. Members would continue making music in bands like The Promise Ring, Joan Of Arc and American Football.
Fueled by some of the members post-Cap’n Jazz activities, interest in the band grew after their break up, and in 1998, Jade Tree Records compiled most of their recordings (which were all out of print) on to a double-disc release. This 2017 double LP re-issue is pressed on 180-gram black vinyl for ultimate sound quality.
