SKU 05-RLP 3134LP
Great Norwegian jazz-rock band who add a bit of modernity and noise to the old school sound of overdriven organ and Rhodes piano (plus some synthesizer), along with electric bass and drums. Definite hints and helpings of Miles circa 1971, early Weather Report (Live in Japan era) and even Tony Williams Lifetme. And to mix it up, they add the great Swedish progressive/psychedelic guitarist Reine Fiske! This is another winner from a band who have now released four winners in a row! Highly recommended!

"On their fourth album, Elephant9 join forces with Reine Fiske, the quite excellent Swedish guitarist from Dungen, The Amazing and Tr�d, Gr�s och Stenar, for yet another heavy slice of mindblowing modern rock'n'jazz psychedelia. Writers have called upon names like Tony Williams� Lifetime, Deep Purple, Brian Auger and early '70s Miles Davis to describe Elephant9's music, pointing to the fact that they are comfortable in both rock and jazz. Elephant9 consists of keyboardist St�le Storl�kken (Supersilent, Humcrush, Motorpsycho), guitarist Nikolai Eilertsen (The National Bank) and drummer Torstein Lofthus (Shining). Reine Fiske makes his entrance on the title track, the long intro section almost sounding like it could have come off an early Terje Rypdal album. No coincidence considering Fiske is a big Rypdal fan and St�le Storl�kken has been Rypdal�s keyboard player for well over a decade. His guest spot ends with the final thirteen minute tour de force and its heavy funk intro reminiscent of another guitar great and his Band of Gypsys. Atlantis is all originals, four from Storl�kken and three from Eilertsen, recorded at Stockholm�s legendary Atlantis studio under the masterful supervision of Janne Hansson and the band�s regular engineer Christian Engfelt."
