Black Market Trust is a five member jazz band based in Los Angeles. Since the 2012 release of their all instrumental debut album The Black Market Trust, a milestone in the genre of gypsy jazz, the band has gone on to record two more albums, maintain a busy touring schedule, and have their music featured on TV shows like the ABC television series Happy Endings and the Hulu original program Casual. The band features the Django Reinhardt inspired gypsy sound of acoustic instruments, and infuses classics from the Great American Songbook with intricate vocal harmonies inspired by The Beach Boys, and other artists influential to the group. Their sophomore album II featured a Top Ten hit on the Adult Contemporary charts, a signature version of Route 66
The Black Market Trust's musical roots run deep, and their new album "Just One of Those Things" reflects that. Artists as diverse as Django Reinhardt, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, are among the talents that influenced the creation of the album. As true artists, the members of the group channeled their inspiration into a sound all their own.
