The Avengers are Adam Holzman, Lincoln Goines, Kim Plainfield, and Beledo. Music scholars and composers each in their own right, the band members carry a rich musical legacy, having also collaborated with and/or having played alongside an array of fusion pioneers. Drawn from deep jazz and rock roots, The Avengers proudly present On A Mission.
After a promising and exhilarating emergence around the early 70’s, the years following have seen critical attention shift away from fusion in favor of traditional jazz, creating an unfortunate (and unnecessary) split into two camps, dissuading many artists from broadening this most eclectic musical form. Gladly, this is not so for the Avengers. Keepers of the flame, they are alchemists, combining elements of the richest historical sound-time, rock and jazz, which by their very mention invoke originality and progression.
Receiving high acclaim from their South American tour performances in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, with this CD, The Avengers invite you to join their mission… honoring past innovators and giving expression to new ideas – an original voice transporting the genre onward, inspired by these awesome times!
On A Mission was recorded at Kaleidoscope Sound, Union City, NJ by Randy Crafton.
