Gongzilla

East Village Sessions

Fans of Gongzilla have been waiting for this record for a long time and it certainly won’t dissapoint them. The cd was recorded live with Benoit Moerlen (vibes, marimba), Hansford Rowe (bass), Bon Lozaga (guitar), Phil Kester (perc) and Gary Husband (drums). Joining them on the the track called The News is guitarist David Fiuczynski. The album is a great amalgamation of progressive rock and ... »

Chris Poland

Ohm

I first heard the name Chris Poland somewhere on the Shawn Lane forum. Most notably, Chris played with the metal band Megadeth in the eighties and moved on to a solo career in the early nineties. OHM, Chris’s latest project seemingly has returned him to his fusion roots. Together with bassist Robert Pagliari and drummer David Eagle this power trio cranked out an outstanding CD that gracefull... »

WOW!! John Scofield’s latest effort is one of the best to date. Recorded Live in Blue Note, NYC, December 2003, John Scofield creates an interplay of high quality jazz with drumming great Bill Stewart and legendary bassist Steve Swallow. The first track ‘Wee’ starts off with a busy yet unconventional melody of John Scofield where he just goes at it. The record is very different f... »

Christian McBride

Christian McBride

Christian Mcbride isn’t necessarily a household name in the fusion world, however on Vertical Vision he makes a partially grand attempt. Known for his work with Sting and Ray Brown, Mcbride’s solo attempts have seemingly been more attuned with acoustic jazz and be-bop. On this album Mcbride tackles an array of music. The soundscapes on this album range from funk-fusion to be-bop and ev... »

Live at KPFK

Live at KPFK

Recorded live on from an FM broadcast (KPFK – 90.7 – F.M.), Poland’s record is an amalgamation of crunching melodies and sheer intensity. Joined by ace drummer Kofi Baker, (son of Ginger Baker), and thumping bass player Robertino Pagliari, Poland has created another great addition to the lineage of great power fusion trios. Rather than just being a shredder, this is real music pl... »

This is certainly one of the best records we have heard this year. This native New Yorker is currently the Director of Education at Tokyo School of Music. Beautiful melodies dominate the record. Chris Juergensen’s guitar-playing is from the Pat Metheny meets Wayne Krantz school.   »

A phenomenally skilled jazz and rock drummer, Wackerman’s professional career began in 1978 with the Bill Watrous band. He’s since accumulated an impressive resume, including a seven-year association with Frank Zappa, with whom he toured the USA and Europe and recorded 26 albums, which speaks volumes about Wackerman’s musical talents. Wackerman also recorded six albums and toured... »

Hired-gun bassist Bryan Beller ventures out on his own with this debut solo album. Beller builds a carefully crafted emotional tapestry of interweaving themes and styles. Drawing on influences as disparate as John Scofield and Rage Against The Machine, Michael Landau and Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails and his mentor, Mike Keneally, the resulting body of work runs the gamut from hardcore jazz/rock to ... »

Tapestry

Tapestry

Released last fall, ‘Tapestry’ is a powerful recording from three of fusion’s most notable musicians. Brett Garsed, Kofi Baker and Ricc Fierabracci are Mojo. This power trio leaves nothing left to be desired. Garsed is featured on all the cuts with his rich tones and blazing solos. Baker holds it all together, hitting the drums hard with his personal signature and Fierabracci add... »

What an incredible project this is. Alex Machacek, Gerald Preinfalk and the one and only Terry Bozzio show their obvious brilliance on this magical piece of work. This is no ordinary fusion record. Featured are unique compositions presented in an unusual way that have a touch of the haunted. »
