Instrumental ska on Ball of Wax? Indeed, instrumental ska on Ball of Wax. Levi stretches his curatorial wings to the plaid, Dr. Marten-wearing heavens for Volume 41 and returns with “Jenzone,” an almost 4 minute, horn-driven, skronky workout from a band called the Kings (one of many, many bands with that name over the past half century plus I assume). “Jenzone” has breakdowns, build-ups, a wonderful finish and all the hallmarks that you’d expect and demand from instrumental ska. This band sounds like they’d be a ton of fun live, and “Jenzone”‘s placement on Volume 41 provides a nice change-up.
