Sex Mob is a New York City jazz band, originally formed as a Knitting Factory vehicle for Steven Bernstein to exercise his slide trumpet. Sex Mob's sets feature a high proportion of covers, usually familiar pop songs, given a humorous, but avant garde treatment. Bernstein points out that this is a return to a fundamental jazz tradition, to take a familiar song then disassemble and reassemble.
