Trioscapes - Separate Realities

SKU 19-Metal Blade 5112
Trioscapes is a instrumental avant/fusion trio of sax/bass/drums. It was initiated by Dan Briggs, the bassist of the very popular Between The Buried and Me. Also featured in the group (because it's just a trio, everyone is heavily, heavily featured!) are saxist Walter Fancourt and drummer Matt Lynch. This is aggressive, ass-kicking, modern jazz/rock that includes elements of metal (it's very heavy) and elements of the avant-garde. Everyone plays really well and the whole thing holds together really well. Think of the great, under-recognized early 70s trio Back Door brought completely and utterly up to date as a jazz/rock outfit. So, just how good are these guys and how ballsy are they? The one cover here is a doozy: Celestial Terrestial Commuters from Birds of Fire by the Mahavishnu Orchestra! And this was released by Metal Blade? The times they must be a changin'... Highly recommended!

Absolutely top-drawer modern fusion. You're missing out if you haven't heard these guys.
