T.R.A.M. - Lingua Franca (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-SUMR71.2
Unique and quite good first album by this 'progressive rock/jazz fusion experience' (as it sez on the label), who really are a progressive rock/jazz experience! Considering that these musicians all come from the alternative/underground side of rock, this actually is heavy jazz/rock that does not slip into metal territory (which is what I expected) and doesn't wimp out either. This is definitely one of the faces of jazz in the future; when I was very young, I got into jazz via the jazz/rock experiments of Soft Machine, The Mothers of Invention, Hatfield, etc. It would be great to learn that some young'uns are able to do the same thing through T.R.A.M.

"It's extremely rare to come across a new band that just flips the script of conventionality throwing caution to the wind, but the debut effort from T.R.A.M. does just that while blazing a trail of creativity that will quickly turn heads across the world. This unit will be referred to by many as a "supergroup," however the members of this dynamic unit aren't in this for any reason but to use it as a platform to further express their art without limitations or any preconceived notions. T.R.A.M. is comprised of such renowned musically proficient artists as Adrian Terrazas (The Mars Volta) on saxophone, flute, bass clarinet and percussion, Javier Reyes (Animals As Leaders) on guitars, Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders) on guitars and Eric Moore (Suicidal Tendencies) on drums. This is a group of likeminded individuals that are naturally gifted and the collaboration of their unique talents results in something truly amazing."
