Synopsis

Product Description
Their most challenging LP, orig. released in 1993. An excellent instrumental garage "jazz-like" album w/four classically untrained guys distilling their favorite bits of Mingus, Sun Ra, Blakey & Miles into a cohesive work that was too rock for the jazz intelligensia & waaaay too jazz for the pop/rock crowd at the time. As usual, they were either way past their time, or way ahead of it. From the liners: "A particular aesthetic that could fall somewhere between The Shaggs' masterpiece 'Philosophy of the World' & Albert Ayler's 'Spirits Rejoice.'" Features performances by KEN VANDERMARK (pre-Genius Grant) on 3 songs, HAL RUSSELL (NRG ENSEMBLE) on 2 songs & are his final recordings, & Dave Max Crawford (ARCHER PREWITT, POI DOG PONDERING) on 2 songs. "Riveting in its intensity & refreshing, for these days, in its originality." --Cadence 8/94
