Wax Poetic is a trip-hop band whose sound reminds some listeners of Morcheeba. pop singer/pianist Norah Jones was a member before her break-out album Come Away With Me. She can still be heard singing with them on the first track of their release, NuBlu Sessions.
The New York trip-hop outfit Wax Poetic came together in 1997 under the reign of Turkish-born music guru Ilhan Ersahin. The group originated at the popular and now-defunct club Save the Robots, and consisted of a volatile group of musicians jamming together to create a heavy groove of drum 'n' bass blended with quick dance elements. Ersahin and company signed to Atlantic in the latter '90s and released their debut self-titled album Wax Poetic in June 2000.
