Ribot, Marc - Asmodeus: Book of Angels, Volume 7

SKU TZ7362
I've never seen Marc Ribot play, but I've heard about how great he is, but nothing I've heard has really blown me away. Until this. This is Ribot playing electric guitar and simply wailing in a very avant/jazz/rock vein ala Jimi Hendrix, Fred Frith, Sonny Sharrock backed by a great rhythm section playing in a harmolodic vein ala James Blood Ulmer in the early/mid 80s. Really great. Recommended.

"Three of the most intense musicians on the planet come together in one of the most explosive and rockin’ ensembles around. An original member of the Masada family since its inception, no one is more keenly equipped to handle a rock trio interpretation of the Book of Angelsthan Marc Ribot. Joined here by the versatile Trevor Dunn (Fantomas, Moonchild) on bass and the legendary G.Calvin Weston (Ornette Coleman, James Blood Ulmer) on drums, Marc plays like never before, referencing Hendrix, Sharrock, McLaughlin, Ulmer and more. Masada music takes on a whole new dimension. Passionate and powerful, this is one of the most compelling installments in the entire Masada series and contains some of Ribot’s wildest and best playing ever. This CD will blow your mind."
