Jon Lundbom & Bryan Murray

Beats by Balto! Vol. 2 (Chant Records)

Chant Records is proud to announce the release of Beats by Balto! Vol. 2, the second volume in a collaboration between guitarist Jon Lundbom and saxophonist-turned-beat-constructor Bryan Murray (a.k.a. Balto Exclamationpoint). The concept – first explored in 2019’s Beats by Balto! Vol. 1 – is Big Five Chord (Lundbom’s long-time band), but with indie hip-hop-style beats built from extant Big Five Chord recordings (and other related material) in place of a live rhythm section.
