Benjamin Gibbard (Death! Cab for Cutie) is proud to announce a new musical project called Just Jazzin'. Born out of an interest in exploring music free from rules and convention, Just Jazzin' offers the world a chance to see another side of Ben. A demo can be found at his myspace along with a video documentary, or check the replies for it.
Ben Gibbard Speaks"....There's this side of me and my music that desires a lack of structure and Just Jazzin' does that for me because I am allowed to just play whatever note comes into my head.", says Ben.
