Synopsis

Amazon.com
More adventurous Medeski Martin & Wood fans might want to check out Medeski's 1994 collaboration with Black Rock Coalition guitarist Fiuczynski. Combining funk, heavy metal, and hip-hop elements with 1970s jazz fusion, Lunar Crush is closer in spirit and sound to Miles Davis's On the Corner than the groovy soul-jazz of MMW. Though the two musicians do occasionally veer into self-indulgence (Fiuczynski with his fret-board shredding; Medeski with his wah-wah workouts), the results are surprisingly engaging. It's not for everyone, but fans of Herbie Hancock's Head Hunters period will understand. --Dan Epstein

Reviewed on 3/18/2009...
Fascinating interplay of artists jamming waaaay outside of normal time & spacial references. Actually, it's more like they are jamming at the end of liquid steel threads attached to the outermost corners of a box spinning at extreme velocities on 1 apex and rotating as a unit through the 4th dimension, while at times clipping a parallel universe along the way. Somehow these guys manage to stay in control, and at times even drop out of warp speed for a few minutes in familiar territory. Not for the faint of heart...
