Project Z – Lincoln Memorial

Jimmy Herring/Project Z – Lincoln Memorial

Bill Bruford once told me in an interview during his last tour with Yes (for the album Union) that chamber or group free improvisation has been a tradition and joy among classically trained European musicians, and that formally scheduled open jam sessions were widely in practice during the time of J.S. Bach and likely long before. As jazz and rock forms in music derived from a blending of European... »

OHM's 'Amino Acid Flashback'

OHM’s ‘Amino Acid Flashback’

Jan-Mikael’s EARS: review: OHM’s ‘Amino Acid Flashback’ Evaluation: OHM’s music is often described as fusion, and in the same sentence is often attached to Chris Poland’s previous work with metal pioneers Megadeth. Neither of these stratifications fully encapsulates the essence of what OHM is… Analysis: Poland is a singularly inventive guitarist. His technique never fails to impress, and his... »

Project Z’s ‘Lincoln Memorial’

Jan-Mikael’s EARS: review: Project Z’s ‘Lincoln Memorial’ Evaluation: Not much could be said about ‘Lincoln Memorial’ that Bill Milkowski didn’t already tender as gospel in his superlative-laden liner notes.

Dean De Benidictis Reviews Whoopgnash

REVIEW OF THE UNCLEAR CHANNEL DVD I’ve seen this ensemble develop from its earliest stages. More then anything during that time, and as a friend of the band, I basically thought of Whoopgnash as a freakspilling-plasterjam-warpspeed-Allan Holdsworth type-protege garage band. This to me was the best and rarest kind of protege garage band, the kind you could always have fun with as an experienc... »
