Has Fred Durst swapped his nu-metal hat for a jazzy fedora?
It was recently revealed that the Limp Bizkit frontman puts on a live jazz night at a magic-themed club called Black Rabbit Rose in Los Angeles. The moniker for the weekly jazz showings? “Fred’z With A Z.”
Fred spoke to LA Weekly about his little known love for jazz.
“I’m a big fan of jazz. I have been for a long time. It’s not necessarily something that people who know me from Limp Bizkit know about me personally. It’s one of the things I’m really fond of, so I travel around to different spots to hear different players. Some word-of-mouth stuff. Sometimes some older cats.”
Durst further revealed his pro bono proliferation of the jazz genre.
“It’s a passion thing. I’m not making one penny. I’m there because I wanna be there. And I love being maybe able to turn some people on to jazz, to the extent of maybe breaking that stereotype of what they might think it is. Some people think jazz is just hearing Frank Sinatra at the Grove or Arnie Morton’s.”
Apparently, Limp Bizkit’s “Combat Jazz” wasn’t just a clever song title.
