Album Review

Reviewed 2017-12-29
Genre: Jazz
FCCs: none
Review: stellar jazz fusion power trio creates more sound than many quintets with just sax, guitar & drums. Never a dull momen!. They also fuse some ethnic vibrations into the mix.
If You Like: Mahavishnu Orchestra, Egberto Gismonti, Jon Hassell
