Synopsis

Amazon.com
Manhattan guitarist Elliott Sharp is best known for his work with the avant- hardcore band, Carbon. Playing obtuse, mathematical compositions on his customized doubleneck guitarbass, Sharp is certainly not headed toward top-40 radio anytime soon. Taking a primarily solo route on Field & Stream, Sharp melds his distinctive guitar methods with an investigation in computer-processed sound and rhythmic drum programs. Filtering jazz, industrial rock, and modern electronica together is no easy task, but Sharp has been condensing unusual musical alternatives since the late '70s and has little problem here. Adding reconfigured bits of tenor saxophone onto his wailing, synthesized guitar and automated percussion anticipates progressive jazz for the 21st century. Elliott Sharp's instrumental music is both an intellectual and visceral experience. --Mitch Myers
