JAZZ ROCK/FUSION

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Jazz Rock/Fusion definition


  1. Jazz Fusion is jazz that is strongly influenced by other styles of music. Jazz fusion is an ambiguous term that provides the first level sub-set down from Jazz. Jazz rock is a sub-sub set from jazz via jazz fusion. The ambiguity comes from an American tendency through the 90's and until now, to freely interchange jazz rock and jazz fusion, when in fact the latter term covers most hybrids of jazz fused with other forms of music. The roots of jazz rock can be traced back to RnB influenced soul-jazz artists such as Les McCann, Grant Green and Jimmy Smith, and young British jazzers such as Graham Bond, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Georgie Fame, who were forced to use electronic instruments because the local club's acoustic instruments were reserved for the older established jazz musicians. Probably the first jazz artists that released recordings that mixed modern rock (circa 60s) with jazz were Larry Coryell, Jeremy Steig, Charles Lloyd, The Soft Machine, and The (Jazz) Crusaders. Meanwhile rock artists such as Cream, Grateful Dead and The Jimi Hendrix Experience were getting a lot of publicity and fame with their lengthy improvisations based on blues, rock, psychedelia and some jazz. These rock artists had an impact on Miles Davis who generated a lot of media attention to this new jazz-rock genre with his Bitches Brew album. From there the genre grew and exploded into numerous different directions. One of these directions was brass rock as exemplified by bands like Dreams, Chicago, BS&T and If. These bands combined elements of jazz, rock and classical music with arrangements for brass and woodwinds.

  2. Many other styles of music have been combined with jazz to create fusion including traditional music from around the world, R'n'B, rock, electronic music and pop music and jazz from Africa, Latin America, India and other places. One of the earliest examples of the use of the term fusion comes from the Indo-jazz fusion of Joe Harriott and John Mayer. Some of the more popular early practitioners of fusion included Weather Report and Herbie Hancock's Sextant. A few years later Shakti appears on the scene and expands the boundaries of fusion further, foreshadowing the World Fusion movement of the 90's.

  3. In part Nu.jazz grew out of the British acid jazz scene of the late 80s and early 90s, whilst modern leaders of nu.fusion cite Miles Davis and Jon Hassell as the godfathers of the genre. As the genre began to develop it took on other influences such as world beat/jazz fusion, psychedelic trip-hop, post-rock and mixtures of ambience with modern jazz. The jazz with electronia experiments that Jon Hassell was conducting in the late 80's, with the likes of Eno, were to be a major influence especially on the dance side of nu.jazz, sometimes known as nu.fusion. Three main elements make nu.jazz different from the more traditional jazz (rock) fusion. First of all there is less of an emphasis on instrumental virtuosity in nu.jazz (especially nu.fusion). Second, more use of electronics (especially skilled turntablism) and studio trickery that emphasizes sound textures. Third, nu.jazz tends to use more modern rhythms such as drum'n'bass, hip-hop, post-rock, and various mixtures of world beat rhythms. Progressive nu.jazz artists such as Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), combine complicated compositions with modern rhythms to create new unheard of soundscapes - while the former two are leaders of nu.fusion, and with more emphasis on jazz playing, EST have been the leaders in straighter nu.jazz. Nu.jazz is loosely connected to other newer jazz fusion genres, particularly the more progressive live, jazz jam bands such as Medeski Martin & Wood or Garaj Mahal. It may seem that the only difference between the two genres is the country the artist is from or what scene they came up through.li>

Only the most progressive of nu jazz, jazz-rock and fusion artists are listed on Progarchives, although accceptability or not here may vary from person to person. All artists have elements of progressive rock in their music (e.g. Jean Luc Ponty, Bill Bruford or David Sancious) or they represent the most forward-looking and progressive element in their genre (e.g. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock or Weather Report). It should be noted that those many Canterbury jazz rock fusion bands, e.g. Soft Machine, Soft Works, Soft Heap, Soft Machine Legacy, Gilgamesh etc. are to be found under the CANTERBURY heading in Prog Archives.

The Trio Project: Live in Marciac
Hiromi Uehara Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Sorry to break the consensus (of the three ratings this far), but no, I'm not going to rate this DVD with five stars, as lovely as this artist is. The Japanese jazz pianist and composer Hiromi (b. 1979) came to my radar several years ago in the get-togethers with my prog-loving friends. Someone knew the artist and we all were delighted by the youtube clips showing Hiromi playing live. The music itself was of course good too, but what really warmed our hearts was the sheer happiness and joy that shone from her face. The cover of this DVD gives you some idea of it. There's absolutely not a shadow of a doubt left: Hiromi just LOVES what she's doing on stage, and she lets it show.

This concert was shot at Marciac Jazz Festival, France, in 2011, the same year when the first Trio Project studio album Voice was released. The keyboardist is accompanied by American bassist Anthony Jackson (b. 1952), a session veteran since the seventies, and British drummer Simon Phillips (b. 1957), undoubtedly known by many prog listeners for having worked with Mike Oldfield, Mike Rutherford and Toto among others. So, we're dealing with virtuoso musicianship here. But sadly, the bass was mixed too low and it was almost inaudible through the whole concert, at least to my ears. Even on the solo spots the instrument's sound was tiny. The sonic density created by Hiromi's piano (and occasional synths) and Phillips' gorgeous drumming seemed to leave the bass somewhere behind. This really bothered me a bit.

The set list of roughly an hour-long concert consists only of seven pieces, five of them from the mentioned Voice album, very understandably so since the trio was pretty young at the time. Among them is the playful jazz version of the well-known slow movement of the "Pathetique" Piano Sonata No. 8 by Beethoven. That piece concentrates very sovereignly on Hiromi's improvisation-like pianism, the rhythm section mostly giving a steady, mild backing. The music of this concert in general is dynamic, fusion-ish contemporary jazz with a relatively strong contribution from the drummer. What I perhaps missed a bit were more delicate and emotionally deeper moments. Probably I was in advance too excited by the idea of the entire Hiromi concert (as opposed to youtube clips) and wasn't as fully impressed by the longish pieces as I had hoped. But if you're more acquainted with Hiromi and her Trio Project in particular, your enjoyment is probably bigger.

The special feature is placed at the end of the film instead of a separate bonus feature spot -- if that matters anything. Well, otherwise I most likely would have started viewing from there, as an appetizer. The 20-minute 'Five Days, Five Countries' is a typical concert DVD extra as it follows the trio on their European tour. Stepping out of a plane, driving on a car (Simon Phillips making jokes of going the wrong way), making soundchecks on the various venues and solving technical problems, giving short clips of the gigs, etc. Jackson and Phillips are not much interviewed at all, and also Hiromi's interview remains pretty short. She says how much she loves performing for the live audience and that she likes visiting various countries and also feels positive about the diversity of the venues themselves, some of them very 'classical' halls, some more club-like places.

Musically very good stuff, sure, but as a DVD this is somewhere between three and four stars for me.

4 stars Review #21: Alas

Siembran dolores de parto animal, lloran los niños su hambre invernal

I will leave aside the obvious, notorious and strong influence on ELP. Despite that, it's a great album!

Alas, the eponymous band's debut album, released in 1976, is a Jazz Fusion album divided into 2 songs, one on each side.

"Buenos Aires solo es Piedra" (3.5/5). A more tango sensibility predominates in terms of sounds. What I could highlight the most was, well.... ELP, heh. And apart from that, the interesting passages of instrumental changes and rhythmic breaks, quite interesting. I really liked the way they combined the drum beats with the synthesizers, it was something quite pleasant to listen to.

"La Muerte Contó el Dinero" (4/5) is my favorite side of the album. This part is more focused on a Vidala tune and starts off in a very good way in my opinion. The melody, the lyrics, Moretto's powerful voice, all together make a great piece of music from this part. Then come several moments, mostly instrumental, that we can find the same as before.

I think the only thing that makes me not to give 5 stars to the album, is that, the potential of the band was very strong, with a very appealing and natural energy. But along the listening, I find it a bit "dense" to finish it. Don't get me wrong, it's a great album and some great songs, but I was disappointed not to have been able to hear how it would have sounded if they had squeezed their talent into something more ambiguous, like better passages, or broken, or ambient soundscapes.

7.5/10, 4 stars. Although they could have done better, let's not forget the impressive level achieved by these 2 great songs!

Review by Saimon

4 stars Review #17: Chester Gorilla

An album with a nice sound, and a good vibe. Far from simple, and subtly indie. Pretty good :)

Chester Gorilla, debut work of the band with the same name, is an album with a mix of Jazz Fusion, folk and groove pretty cool.

I hope the band will release another album soon because this was really enjoyable. I listened to it for the second time when I went to the beach at sunset. Then I listened to a few songs while watching midnight in my backyard. And I must say, it's an album that can be enjoyed much more outdoors, and at any time.

To tell the truth, very diverse, fun, sentimental, with pretty clean sounds and instrumentation.

Puippara (17/20): A very friendly introduction to the album, with catchy flutes and keyboards.

Shesone (8/10): Something more "desert" ambient, with bongos, guitar standing out above the rest, and that western touch that fits quite well with the ambience of the other sounds. And I want to mention something, which is the short transitional guitar solo at minute 3:30 that reminded me a lot of "Octopus's Garden (Abbey Road)".

Peter the Elephant (4/5): We start the song with a space ambience, whales running aground, and the screams of an elephant transitioning to a guitar that would introduce the song. It is a calmer song, with saxophones in between adding one or another arrangement or arpeggio. Subtle rhythmic breaks with the soft saxophone picking up the end of some of the arrangements. "A Wildlife Song".

Aripuppollo Space (14/20): Something more dynamic. Starts with funk algorithms, progresses with a cut of quebrados and drums. And moves on to a more jazzy ambience with a focus on bass.

Guacamole (7/10): I don't know if I have much to say about this song. It's kind of simple but not that simple, and it's good. I was a little amused by the monkey sounds at the beginning. It might be the most "Jazz/Fusion" thing on the album.

The Heat (5/5): In my opinion, the best track on the album, and the only one with vocals. It has little cuts, interludes, breaks, harmonies, all together make for a great song to close the album.

8/10, 4 stars. A great album for the season, and surprising that it belongs in 2020.

Accordo Dei Contrari Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

5 stars Italian jazz-rockers set forth a goal of achieving Birds of Fire-like power and ecstatic energy. Result: Mission accomplished. Especially on the first two and last songs.

1. "Tergeste" (9:00) opening three minutes reminds me of FIVE-STOREY ENSEMBLE if Olga & Co. continued their meteoric development that began with RATIONAL DIET. When drums and electric guitars and bass join in, it starts to sound heavier than I've heard before. By the middle of the fifth minute, I'm totally immersed in MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA territory. Love the slow sonic and compositional fade in the eighth minute that leads to an organ drone over which bass, sax, and slowly re-build the complex riffs that the keyboards started in the first three minutes. Perfect execution of a perfect composition--complete with a guitar arpeggio at the very end that comes straight out of MO's Birds of Fire. (20/20)

2. "Così Respirano gli Incendi del Tempo / Thus They Breathe, Time's Fires" (7:45) inspiration is one thing, imitation another, but here we get almost too-close-to-differentiate replication: the song's chords, melodies, dynamics, and even sound engineering of the instruments sound too close to MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA--could be, in fact, lifted from particular songs from 1970s records. Don't get me done: It's masterfully done, with impeccable skill and virtuosity, but I was hoping for/expeciting a little more originality from this band. At least the directional change in the fifth minute takes them into different, more jazzy territory. And then the piano interlude in the sixth minute has a its own originality to it--like a Rachmaninoff étude, but then the Rick Laird-like violin sound joins in... It's gorgeous- -incredible melodies on multiple levels making for a weave of compositional mastery, but? But I don't know what! These are just mind-blowing skills being dispayed in the form of beautiful music! Man! that went by fast! My favorite song on the album! (15/15)

3. "Più Limpida e Chiara di Ogni Impressione Vissuta (Pt. III) / More Limpid and Clearer Than Any Lived Impression (Pt. III)" (4:23) More clean power jazz-rock, this time with a little more Italian/ADC feel to it (until the Rick Laird violin enters to shred). It's the piano and clean whole-band power chord structures that make it ADC--especially that gorgeous piano-guitar-cymbal interlude at the end of the second minute. Sax solo in the third minute reminds me of some early KING CRIMSON, but then dirty organ solo brings us into different territory. Maybe MUSEO ROSENBACH, BIGLIETTO PER L'INFERNO, or even OSANNA? (8.7510)

4. "UR-" (10:50) Are they really? Are they really taking us into the hallowed ground of their own countrymates, AREA? or is it BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO they're trying to honor here? Whatever it is, the opening 90 seconds of this are truly captivating--even when they start to feel like their tip-toeing through GOBLIN territory, it's great. Then the sax-and-electric guitar join in to introduce the main melody--sounding like Cervello's CORRADO RUSTICI (who was imitating and inspired by John MeLaughlin) and Corrado's brother, Danilo's band, Osanna's ELIO D'ANNA (who would later team up to form the great NOVA lineup). The odd, repetitive motif that is played out over the next few minutes sounds more like Van Der Graaf Generator or Norway's wonderful SEVEN IMPALE. What great sound! What a wonderful tribute to so much of the best of avant prog and 1970s jazz-oriented Rock Progressivo Italiano! (17.75/20)

5. "Secolo Breve / The Short Century" (4:35) Here we get a complex jazzy rock tune that feels more avant garde and yet follows some standard jazz and rock rules and forms. Again, the talents of these instrumentalists--especially the keyboard player, but even the bass and drums--are on full display here. Not as engaging or "beautiful" as the previous two. (8.75/10)

6. "Contrari ad Ogni Accordo / Opposed to Any Agreement" (5:53) piano and plaintive sax perform a duet that almost sounds like a VINCE GUARALDI jazzed up a little but still maintaining that deep, timeless beauty in its melodies. Violin and then drums and bass join in during the third minute bringing us back to Mahavishnu territory (reminding me that some Mahavihsnu songs often had a very simple foundational chord structure--this while the soloists went bat-ape [&*!#] crazy over the top). Great tune; great work by all, somehow managing to keep that understated Vince Guaraldi essence throughout. (It was the piano, of course!) (9.25/10)

Total Time 42:26

Well, if capturing the magic of Birds of Fire was their goal, then, mission accomplished--only, with modern day production values, they may have surpassed any of Johnny Mac's early 1970s expeditions--especially in terms of sound clarity/quality.

A/five stars; an indisputable masterpiece of progressive rock music. Composition and performance of the VERY highest levels. In my humble opinion, this is the BEST album of 2021.

Andy Nogger
Kraan Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by mickcoxinha

4 stars I was more familiar with mid-to-late seventies Kraan work, where it is more jazz-tinged rock and funk with a few exceptions. In Andy Nogger, we have more experimental and prog sounds, although it is easy to see from where the late sounds come, since the rhythm section is very strong through the whole album. It is more jazzy than funky.

As for the songs themselves, there are two instrumentals, which are the best songs of the album, especially Holiday am Matterhorn, where the players are let loose and do the best playing in the whole album. Nam Nam is more funky, but also a terrific song. Of the songs with vocals, the closer, Yellow Bamboo, is the best, with a superb bass riff and sax solos with effects, including sounding like a violin sometimes.

The effects are a highlight in this song, as they are in Home and Son of the Sun, in which the experimental parts make the band sound closer to experimental Krautrock bands. It is a pitty that these parts are kinda short, and the rest of Home and Son of the Sun are good, but not that special. As for the other songs, they have great playing, but they are not that interesting, since, in my opinion, the sung parts and not well integrated with the instrumental parts and they didn't manage to get the best of its elements.

Even so, it is still a superb album that is worthy listening.

Review by DangHeck

— First review of this album —
4 stars A stellar yet under-represented modern Prog Metal extravaganza!

Initially introduced to me via Poh Hock's (NATIVE CONSTRUCT, REPLACIRE) "Fans also like" section on Spotify. And in turn, The Resonance Project's related artists/bands include the excellent THRAILKILL/MAMMOTH, the great electro-Jazz Austrian guitarist WAXAMILION (highly recommend to fans of POLYPHIA), and one of my favorite Jazz-oriented Prog Metal groups, NOVA COLLECTIVE. Really, I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of modern progressive music (specifically metal, of course).

Right off the bat with the introductory "Prelude" and the following "A Progression to Infinity", we meet this band (this duo?) in an epic and grand way. A lot of space filled with loveliness and then, in the second half of the latter track, really exemplary, even genuinely interesting modern Prog Metal--I'll admit I'm not the easiest to please here. The guitar and synth leads intermingle in the most satisfying fashion.

The album 'laxes a bit with "Reflection", then bounces back to heft with "Neo Thangka" (really, just in comparison). Still a breather, but a refreshing mix of heaviness and melody. Lead guitar is shared with frequent Thrailkill/Mammoth collaborator Mateus Asato as well as FELIX MARTIN, known for his custom 14-string Chapman-Warr hybrid guitar--he's pretty well liked here on ProgArchives, so I'll have to check him out! Really trying not to bullsh*t with the ratings here (on a song-by-song basis). This song specifically really is great. Overall it's evident that they and those they employed here are very talented musicians. And you'll be hard-pressed to find a song that isn't good on this album. I'm a song-oriented listener, if that means anything.

There is a slight shift in tone with "The Anthem" (though everything herein is very much from the same thematic(?) cloth), with epic faux-strings and even an acoustic-classical guitar passage (and so much more). Beautiful and epic stuff, ripe and ready for your average Prog fan. Not to misdirect, but... this is a must-hear track, the clear highlight! It had surprise and cunning. Really, don't not listen to this one.

Sticky Brain Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by andrea
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars Sticky Brain took form in 2014 in Schio, a small town in the province of Vicenza, on the initiative of Andrea Moro and Mattia Cavallaro, inspired by artists and bands such as Herbie Hancock, Weather Report or Snarky Puppy. After some time spent honing their skills and playing live on the local scene, in 2019 the band self-released an interesting debut album, entitled "Looking Forward", with a line up featuring Giorgio Manzardo (sax), Stefano Nardon (keyboards, vocals), Andrea Moro (bass), Giovanni Caruso (guitar), Mattia Cavallaro (guitar) and Alessandro Barbieri (drums). For the art cover was chosen a painting by Lanfranco Frigeri, "La matriarca dell'astronave" (oil on canvas, 1973). Lanfranco Frigeri is an artist best known for the cover of Le Orme's "Felona e Sorona" and in my opinion his dreamy subjects and surreal landscapes perfectly fit the musical content of this album...

The hypnotic opener 'Fifty-Fifty' starts softly but soon the dreamy atmosphere gives way to a lively funky jazz passage before taking a darker, mysterious path... Many changes in rhythm and mood follow during a crazy ride of more than nine minutes that leads to the short, carefree 'Today Is Friday'...

Next comes 'Up From The Grave', the only sung track on the album. It's a beautiful piece blending jazz with a touch of psychedelia, Latin rock and reminiscences of the Beatles. It tells in music and words the experience of a revenant coming out of his grave, searching for a melody. His skeleton falls apart while he's dancing under the moon, just like in a comic book. Then he takes off in a new coloured form escaping from hell...

'Stajass' is a long, complex piece that starts softly with romantic passages and a strong sense of melody. The vibrant middle section then gives way to a final part sprinkled with oriental flavours... The following 'Viaggio alla roccia di Morosha' is a lively track with a pulsing rhythm that every now and again reminds me slightly of Area's "La mela di Odessa"...

'Biveson' ends the album and features a dreamy first part with echoes of smooth jazz and bossa nova and a second part in crescendo where the rhythm takes off for a finale where you can hear some psychedelic touches.

On the whole, a good debut work in the vein of bands such as Mad Fellaz or Endless Season.

Axis Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars 4.5 stars. Man if I was from Greece there would be three albums that I would hold up with pride as the most monumental recordings from that nation. This third and final studio album from AXIS along with APHRODITE'S CHILD's "666" and PLJ BAND's "Armageddon. Three absolutely adventerous and intriguing albums right there. They all fascinate me in different ways. This final record from AXIS is a major change from the two albums before it and why this band is listed under Jazz/Fusion here. The first two had a 60's vibe with lots of vocals and they played in a psychedelic style that was at times poppy and at other times folky. The first two records shared six tracks. Then the band grew up! I mean they graduated with honours. This is not for the faint of heart, talk about an about face. We get some avant jazz, free jazz and experimental tunes, but also melodic stuff like the hard rocking opener that could have been a single and those Canterbury moments mostly with that fuzzed out organ that brings HATFIELD AND THE NORTH to mind.

Two lineup changes as the guitarist leaves and is not replaced. None is credited in the liner notes but I think I hear it but maybe it's the keyboards. They add a second drummer and I don't know if that's because there were two recording sessions in 1973, one in April where they did 6 tracks including "Pa Vu Ga Di" at a German Evangelical church which consists mostly of vocals and church organ. Then four tracks in June which are actually the first four songs off this album. The bass player was also replaced. The keyboardist adds mellotron this time and the electric piano is really good. SpaceFreak from another site who is from Greece mentions that Chris one of the drummers here(not the guitarist) bought Christian Vander's drum set that he had used on MAGMA's debut. Chris would go on to drum for CLEARLIGHT, Francis Moze and ZAO although he never recorded with the latter.

That opener "Waiting A Long Time" is just a hard rocking tune with a chorus that softens to great affect. The second instrumental break is out of left field as they turn to an avant Jazz style and check out that piano. "Sewers Down Inside" is dark with faint sounds to start and it stays sparse really with some brief outbreaks before the intro returns around 3 minutes in. Then suddenly a full sound before 4 minutes. Another surprise is that it settles with vocals, mellotron and beats before 5 minutes. I like the bass on "Materializing The Unlimited" and there's an electronic quality to this track as sounds cycle and swirl until 2 1/2 minutes in when distortion and drums take over. A relentless attack to the end.

"Asymphonia" I and II which are tracks 4 and 7 are Free Jazz with what sounds like double bass, piano and drums and this is avant later on. Love the electric piano on "Suspended Precipice". "Roads" along with the opener and closer are my top three. A definite Canterbury vibe here with the keyboards. Distortion! Jazzy drums and bass. More of this Canterbury flavour on the closer "The Planet Vavoura". I want to mention "Dancing Percussion" as well which starts off haunting with experimental sounds as voices cry out in the distance. Floating organ and dancing percussions follow.

A bit shocking to hear this after spending a lot of time with their debut "Ela Ela". I mean it doesn't sound like the same band at all. Out of the park!

Review by Mirakaze
Collaborator Eclectic Prog Team

4 stars What was it Robert Christgau said? "It's not impressive or difficult to rock out in 9/8 - it's impossible"? Well, these guys are sure showing him: not only are they rocking out, they're jumping all around, getting drunk and partying the house down in 9/8 and various time signatures. This album adds a very nice funky Latin element to what is in and of itself quite a rhythmically complex jazz fusion basis, creating a convincing balance between the Apollonian and Dionysian for all of those stuffy music snobs who hear the call of the dancefloor but feel too good for regular 4/4 beats. Something like that. Actually, I am not able to confirm at this moment if this album is at all fit for playing at any party, but even when you're alone and with headphones on it is a hoot to listen to all the same.

All the musicians are given their fair time to shine, with band leader/saxophonist/flautist Cristián Crisosto (who's not shy in adding some cheeky vibrato to his blowing) and drummer Christian Hirth especially giving it their all, but the main star is vocalist Florencia Novoa, whose contributions range from seductive crooning to wordless melodic doublings of the rapid guitar lines. Like I said, the overall atmosphere is one of good fun: the best track is "Godzilla", which has quite an involving main melody and goes through several cool tempo changes near the end but always retains the feeling of looseness and laidbackness, as if it all comes natural to the musicians (I don't quite understand the relevance of the song title, but the king of the monsters would certainly be able to level a major city if he were to try dancing to this tune). Even when the sound gets more edgy and starts vaguely resembling Zeuhl with its synchronized horn blasts and female vocals (as on "Fulano") it sounds hopeful and triumphant.

The whole experience is only soured by the final track, a primitive punk song that lacks an interesting hook and just gets annoying with its shouty vocal delivery and stupid "sieg heil" chants - tongue-in-cheek, undoubtedly, but very tasteless nonetheless; it doesn't fit at all with the rest of the album's jolly carefree tone, so just skip it and you'll have yourself a nice eccentric Latin jazz treat.

A Triggering Myth Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A TRIGGERING MYTH was the project of two American keyboardists who released 6 studio albums from 1990 to 2006(I have the last three). It was that last album "The Remedy Of Abstraction" that I first heard not long after it came out and I became a fan. This is complex music with the piano and synths more often than not creating a feast for the ears while on this particular release they brought in a drummer and a guitarist some may know in Scott McGill to help fill out the sound. There is some programming here as well from one of the keyboardists creating atmosphere and different instrumental sounds. The artwork is from Travis Smith just like the cool one on "The Remedy Of Abstraction". This is a 43 minute suite divided into 8 different parts. Lets just say repeated listens are almost a must to unlock some of the brilliance going on here.

It's hard to even mention which parts are my favourite but I made a note about "Part I" about how cool it was to really listen to what's going on here. Piano leading at first then the synths take over then the organ floats in. A mid-paced beauty with so much going on. It settles before 3 minutes as we hear spoken words and a party going on in the background as this continues to the end. McGill struts his stuff on "Part II". Man it's like chaos with so much going on but it's not. It settles after 2 minutes but there's still lots going on. "Part III" is the synth and piano show with tempo shifts and more. "Part IV" is mellow with flute-like sounds. The tempo picks up before 1 1/2 minutes with drums joining in. Those flute-like sounds return later along with a dark mood before it brightens late to end it.

"Part V" is another feast for the ears. Complex with atmosphere as the piano starts to lead early on. Guitar's turn to lead the way as McGill lights it up. It settles with a beautiful melodic sound in atmosphere. Piano only late to end it. I like "Part VI" as it has a symphonic sound here with the pulsating synths as other synths solo. It settles as they start to change it up the rest of the way. Check out the guitar bringing Frampton to mind after 4 minutes. This 10 1/2 minute section is the longest by far. If I had to pick one part I like the best it would have to be "Part VII". Just that heavier sound with those dark piano lines. Drums and synths as well. Subtle changes on this one and repeated themes. I just like the sound of this one. "Part VIII" ends it with more complexity at first but for me it's that calm section 2 minutes in with the atmosphere, synths and piano that does it for me.

This is what we call Progressive Music right here.
