Debut release by famed "A Charlie Brown Christmas" drummer Jerry Granelli's latest two-guitar band features a diverse approach - jazz improvisation, blues-rock-funk fusion, freeform jamming, sampled soundscapes and more - which makes it equally at home in both jazz and avant-rock contexts, at jazz festivals and jamband venues. Highlighting the superb interplay of famous slide virtuoso Dave Tronzo, lyrical German guitar ace Christian KÃ¶gel (from Jerry's band UFB), and versatile bassist Anthony Cox, the group hones it's style on a surprising range of material. There are drummerless acoustic improvs, KÃ¶gel's trancey bossa nova, Jerry's waltz-to-freetime-to-Latin Mr. Wong suite, a psych-tinged, freegrass flavoured extended cover of the old standard "Temptation," and several varieties of soul jazz by Cox. Expect the unexpected; as Granelli comments in his note, "The heart of the band is risk, not knowing, curiosity and nowness." 24 bit/176.4K digital recording and 2 + 5 channel mix to DSD.
