Cap'n Jazz, Analphabetapolothology
Label: Jade Tree

Before guitarist Davey Van Bohlen formed Promise Ring and singer and guitarist Tim Kinsella founded Joan of Arc, both played in this eclectic and unsung Chicago band. Cap'n Jazz deserve props not only for their gnarled, impassioned songs, but also for their diverse, stylistic approach. Instead of rooting their emotional expulsions in post-hardcore, the musicians expressed themselves in a more accessible alternative/indie rock framework.

Capn' Jazz is heavy,quirky punk rock, much like many a DC hardcore band. What noticeably sets their sound apart from that niche is that they sporadically blend in a unique brand of Chicago avant-jazz that would later become more prominent in vocalist Tim Kinsella's later work in Joan of Arc. Cap'n Jazz does on occasion throw in some saxophone, but don't be afraid like I am of anything that equates with Kenny G. Their cover of "Take on Me" is noteworthy.

They Say All Music Guide

The excellent two-disc set Analphabetapolothology collects the entirety of the Cap’n Jazz oeuvre, assembling all of the singles and compilation tracks as well as unreleased eight-track demos and live material from their final show in their native Chicago. – Jason Ankeny
