Death by Jazz began as a solo project started by composer Tom Infande. An album concept was formed and Tom was joined by Solfunkshun aka Cliff Smith on bass and Jeff Larcher on drums and percussion. The trio then set out to write a new album together as the Death by Jazz trio. The musicians all met through the Music Production program at Valencia Community College and Flat Foot Records. Tom wrote most of the first material performing on drums, bass, and guitar on different songs. Cliff joined up with Tom after the two of them had been in a previous band and decided to begin working on music together. Tom discovered Jeff at a recording session and brought him in as the drummer. Tom guitar performances have been influenced by jazz, funk, rock, and fusion musicians. Solfunkshun being influenced by funk and jazz. Jeff influences have been modern rock, jazz and funk. All have an influence from classic horror movies adding that sort of element into the theme of the songs in the first album.
The three have been writing new music and have been performing in Orlando. They have been recording at Flat Foot Records in Orlando Florida. They look to release a full length album in the fall..
