When classical musician/composer/curator Joshua Roman visits Amoeba Hollywood he's sure to pick out a very eclectic mix of music, one that includes electronic, opera, jazz, and Ween. "I discovered Ween in college when I discovered a lot of things, musical and non-musical," says Roman, "and some of them go very well with Ween." Masters of style" is what he calls them, saying, "They're the most versatile band that I know." High praise coming from someone with tastes as versatile as Roman.
