The opening of this CD says it all: pretty, spare, piano chords, suggestive of Sigur Ros; faster riffs on the bass; electronics appear, seemingly drawn from the piano sounds; drums enter and slowly take over while the bass morphs into Hendrix-style (and beyond) guitar (at some point we realize that the electronics are from there, not from the piano); drums coalesce into a single, irregular, pounding beat on just one drum; sudden cessation of violence, leaving only strange electronic echo effects that lead, finally, to a resolve. A number of quieter, more ambient numbers, and then this twenty-minute sound arc (spread over three pieces) happens again in a different way. This is not jazz-rock fusion, this is jazz-metal fusion. The earlier funky, trumpet-heavy, off-metered style has given way to a more "long-symphonic" approach. I picked up this CD more or less at random, and I’m glad I did. Later musical developments will tell if this is a future course for jazz (one of many) or a side experiment.
