Imaginative, atmospheric, drum 'n bass jazz from former Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter sideman Marc Cary. Rhodes ahead is hand and hand with the jazz rock revolution mapped by Zawinul and Miles Davis in the late 60's and here Marc Cary pushes the electric piano boldly into the millennium, dedicating this album to it's inventor Harold Rhodes. Cary negotiates a series of lush backdrops that vary from pneumatic drum & bass to mood indigo house and juggernaut-heavy jazz funk. A stunning musical mosaic where jazz and jungle are simply the primary colors. Tribute to the holy grail of synthesis. The distilled essence of electronica, the holy grail of analogue synthesis, linked to Herbie Hancock's casually gorgeous soul-jazz phrasing, trickling out of that bulky fiberglass casing like liquid funk. Tarus Mateen's slithering fretless bassline interlocks with Cary's improvisations. Inspired by the timeless classic sound or the Rhodes piano.

"this cd is just wonderful. it's not really a jazz cd, although the bass lines have a jazz feel 2 them. it's more of an electronic-space-dub-drum and bass thing. totally experimental in nature, yet the players know where they're going. the only thing that doesn't work 4 me is track 9, take me higher, which has congas in it. don't get me wrong-i love congas-but somehow it doesn't work with all the electronica that came b4 it. definitely worth an addition 2 any1's cd collection and i wonder if there is any1 else out there doing stuff like this."
