JAZZ ROCK/FUSION

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Jazz Rock/Fusion definition


  1. Jazz Fusion is jazz that is strongly influenced by other styles of music. Jazz fusion is an ambiguous term that provides the first level sub-set down from Jazz. Jazz rock is a sub-sub set from jazz via jazz fusion. The ambiguity comes from an American tendency through the 90's and until now, to freely interchange jazz rock and jazz fusion, when in fact the latter term covers most hybrids of jazz fused with other forms of music. The roots of jazz rock can be traced back to RnB influenced soul-jazz artists such as Les McCann, Grant Green and Jimmy Smith, and young British jazzers such as Graham Bond, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Georgie Fame, who were forced to use electronic instruments because the local club's acoustic instruments were reserved for the older established jazz musicians. Probably the first jazz artists that released recordings that mixed modern rock (circa 60s) with jazz were Larry Coryell, Jeremy Steig, Charles Lloyd, The Soft Machine, and The (Jazz) Crusaders. Meanwhile rock artists such as Cream, Grateful Dead and The Jimi Hendrix Experience were getting a lot of publicity and fame with their lengthy improvisations based on blues, rock, psychedelia and some jazz. These rock artists had an impact on Miles Davis who generated a lot of media attention to this new jazz-rock genre with his Bitches Brew album. From there the genre grew and exploded into numerous different directions. One of these directions was brass rock as exemplified by bands like Dreams, Chicago, BS&T and If. These bands combined elements of jazz, rock and classical music with arrangements for brass and woodwinds.

  2. Many other styles of music have been combined with jazz to create fusion including traditional music from around the world, R'n'B, rock, electronic music and pop music and jazz from Africa, Latin America, India and other places. One of the earliest examples of the use of the term fusion comes from the Indo-jazz fusion of Joe Harriott and John Mayer. Some of the more popular early practitioners of fusion included Weather Report and Herbie Hancock's Sextant. A few years later Shakti appears on the scene and expands the boundaries of fusion further, foreshadowing the World Fusion movement of the 90's.

  3. In part Nu.jazz grew out of the British acid jazz scene of the late 80s and early 90s, whilst modern leaders of nu.fusion cite Miles Davis and Jon Hassell as the godfathers of the genre. As the genre began to develop it took on other influences such as world beat/jazz fusion, psychedelic trip-hop, post-rock and mixtures of ambience with modern jazz. The jazz with electronia experiments that Jon Hassell was conducting in the late 80's, with the likes of Eno, were to be a major influence especially on the dance side of nu.jazz, sometimes known as nu.fusion. Three main elements make nu.jazz different from the more traditional jazz (rock) fusion. First of all there is less of an emphasis on instrumental virtuosity in nu.jazz (especially nu.fusion). Second, more use of electronics (especially skilled turntablism) and studio trickery that emphasizes sound textures. Third, nu.jazz tends to use more modern rhythms such as drum'n'bass, hip-hop, post-rock, and various mixtures of world beat rhythms. Progressive nu.jazz artists such as Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), combine complicated compositions with modern rhythms to create new unheard of soundscapes - while the former two are leaders of nu.fusion, and with more emphasis on jazz playing, EST have been the leaders in straighter nu.jazz. Nu.jazz is loosely connected to other newer jazz fusion genres, particularly the more progressive live, jazz jam bands such as Medeski Martin & Wood or Garaj Mahal. It may seem that the only difference between the two genres is the country the artist is from or what scene they came up through.li>

Only the most progressive of nu jazz, jazz-rock and fusion artists are listed on Progarchives, although accceptability or not here may vary from person to person. All artists have elements of progressive rock in their music (e.g. Jean Luc Ponty, Bill Bruford or David Sancious) or they represent the most forward-looking and progressive element in their genre (e.g. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock or Weather Report). It should be noted that those many Canterbury jazz rock fusion bands, e.g. Soft Machine, Soft Works, Soft Heap, Soft Machine Legacy, Gilgamesh etc. are to be found under the CANTERBURY heading in Prog Archives.

Wiesbaden 1972
Embryo Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is an archival live document of EMBRYO playing in Wiesbaden back in 1972 but not released until 2008. We get the legendary duo of Roman Bunka and Christian Burchard, the latter I just found out passed away a month ago sadly. Dieter Miekautsch plays electric piano mostly. He played as well with MISSING LINK and MISSUS BEASTLY. Hansi Fischer from XHOL CARAVAN and XHOL plays sax on that last 21 minute plus track. Klaus Gotzner adds percussion he would go on to play drums in TON STEINE SCHERBEN. It was strange reading all these song titles and not recognizing them but Uwe points out in his excellent review that some of these songs and sections would appear later under different names. By the way, if you don't have EMBRYO's first six studio albums you need to rectify that, all classics. Happy birthday Uwe!

"Ouverture Marimbasaz" is as the title suggests filled with lots of marimba from drummer Burchard along with saz from guitarist Bunka. A very ethnic sounding track that blends into "Sunrising" where the saz and marimba continue. Drums arrive around 3 1/2 minutes as they continue to jam. Like SOFT MACHINE they go from one song to the next in this live setting without missing a beat. It blends into "Dieter Plays" where we get guitar after 2 minutes as the drums pound away, bass too then keyboards from Dieter. So the first three tracks really aren't my thing but man these last four songs are very much my thing.

"Space To No Place To Go" features drums and guitar leading the way making this more my thing. I like that sound a minute in with bass and drums as the guitar solos over top. Really good! Check out that guitar 2 minutes in, oh my! A calm after 3 minutes with guitar expressions and atmosphere. The bass starts to come to the fore. Some spoken words before 5 1/2 minutes and then it kicks in again before 6 minutes, vocals too. The guitar lights it up 6 1/2 minutes in.

"Andalucia Si" continues with the bass, guitar and drums as keys join in quickly. This sounds amazing. It settles after 2 1/2 minutes with some impressive guitar. Some vocals then it starts to build. So good! A jazzy section that I recognize takes over after 4 minutes. Not worthy as we get more vocals. Guitar to the fore 5 1/2 minutes in. Love this relaxed jazzy sound, reminds me of NUCLEUS.

"Master Plan Of Pharoa" features bass and drums with guitar playing over top. The guitar actually reminds me of Carlos Santana here. And man that guitar really steals the show on this 9 1/2 minute track. Keyboards before 2 1/2 minutes as the guitar steps aside. Vocals after 3 1/2 minutes and they will come and go. Love that guitar 7 minutes in and there's a jazzy section a minute later.

"Pygmaen Uberall/ Back From Africa" ends the album with a 21 plus minute tour de force. Bass, percussion, drums and more to start. Guitar just before a minute and it will impress as this plays out. Sax from Hansi arrives before 7 minutes and continues until 9 minutes in when the guitar takes over. Sax is back before 11 minutes then we get drums only after 11 1/2 minutes then bass and more as it builds. The guitar really shines the rest of the way, man Roman has some skills. Some fuzz 19 minutes in as it settles back. Some vocals after 20 minutes as it comes to a close.

A really excellent archival release as we get both their World Music leanings along with classic sounding EMBRYO. While I prefer the latter by far this is a really solid album. And it's pretty cool to get all these songs I haven't heard before but there is some familiarity regardless.

Serious Young Insects (as On The Virg)
Virgil Donati Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This was such a pleasure to spend some time with this past week. It just seems like it's been a while since I listened to this style of music. If your into PLANET X or Derek Sherinian you'll know what to expect. Virgil Donati the Australian drummer who would go on to play with both of the bands I just mentioned is truly a monster on the kit. This is about an hour of all instrumental Jazz/ Fusion/ Metal. The band is comprised of mostly Australians but also some Americans. A four piece with three guests adding guitars and bass. A lot of these guys have played together already before this and yes they are all players.

"Native Metal" is my favourite track. Listen to the feedback and atmosphere to start then this heavy sound kicks in with a ton of depth to it as drums, bass and fuzzed out guitars lead the way. So good! Synths arrive just before a minute as it lightens up. Not for long though and check out that guitar solo starting before 3 1/2 minutes.

"Malfunction" is a top five for me. Strummed guitar and drums get blown away by a heavy rhythm and some nasty guitar. Powerful synths come and go. It brightens at 1 1/2 minutes then back to that heavy and aggressive sound. It brightens again before 3 minutes as themes are repeated. A synth solo before 3 1/2 minutes. It's so heavy after 4 minutes.

"Alien Hip" is fast paced right out of the gate with riffs and drums. It will settle back with guitar over top but then back to that fast paced sound as contrasts continue. It's really intense late to end it.

"Sort Yourself Out" hits the ground running and when it settles we get some huge bass lines before the guitar starts to solo quickly over top. Keyboards lead as the guitar steps aside. Those huge bass lines continue. Some ripping guitar before 3 1/2 minutes then a funky groove takes over after 3 1/2 minutes with some impressive keyboard and bass work. Check out the guitar starting before 6 minutes.

"Pyramids On Mars" is another top five. I like how this builds as pulsating synths lead with drums. Great uplifting sound before 2 minutes. It settles more with synths just before 2 1/2 minutes. Some nice soaring guitar after 3 minutes. The guitar and sound are getting nasty after 4 minutes. Love this! It picks up as synths pulse as the guitar steps aside.

"Dragon Bones" has these cool sounding synths to start before getting crushed by the heaviness rather quickly. Love that sound 2 minutes in. "Trencherman" is a top five as well and the longest track at 8 1/2 minutes. Check out the drumming and guitar early on. Oh my! Another "wow" moment 2 minutes in with the bass and drums this time. That ends after 4 minutes as a determined rhythm takes over and check out those keyboards! The guitar starts to light it up big time.

"Out Of The Haze" has this nice heavy sound with the synths over top. It settles with intricate guitar, a beat and synths before 1 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in before 3 minutes then settles again. "Invasion Of The Ants" is my final top five. A catchy guitar driven tune as the drums and bass support. Love how powerful this is but also when it settles but still with a lot of depth to it as the guitar solos over top. Synths then solo before it all settles back before 5 minutes but not for long. Big finish.

"Running From The Aliens" opens with some great sounding keyboards as the bass, drums and guitar join in quickly. Synths pulse as we get some complexity but this is fun as well. I like the calm after 3 minutes with that impressive bass solo. "Penthalon" sounds amazing to start with the drums, bass and guitar. It drives along taking no prisoners until the synths join in. Back to the intensity as the synths stop. Contrasts continue. Nice guitar solo after 2 1/2 minutes.

One of the better albums that I've heard in this style and this is from 1999. A solid 4 stars.

Pekka Pohjola Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Kingsnake

5 stars Perfect jazzrockfusion with hints of symphonic prog and folk. This is a solo-album by a bassplayer, so you can expect some extended bass-soloiing, but it's never tedious or boring, because the drums/percussion accompanies it. Of course there's also a lot of organ and violinplaying by Pekka, wich is also something to cheer for. Pekka's bassplaying is impeccable, but drummer Reino Laine is also very strong.

It reminds me a bit of Return to Forever and Tony William's Lifetime (but without the guitars, of course). Because it's playful, well produced and it rocks. That's why I like jazzrockfusion, because it rocks. I can imagine not everyone will be into this, but I like it very much. This is the kind of record that's still strong after 50 years.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars 3.5 stars. If there ever was an album that falls right in between 3 and 4 stars this is it. I reviewed their latest from 2006 called "The Remedy Of Abstraction" back in December of 2006 making it one of the early Prog albums I picked up back then. I didn't get into Prog until around 2005 and started doing reviews on here in August of 2006. It was probably that cover art that moved me to pick that one up. This band are a duo from the USA and they always seem to have some very talented guests helping out. Here it's the DEUS EX MACHINA vocalist and violinist adding their talents on several tracks. I couldn't get over that strong Classical vibe on this album which works well of course with Alberto's operatic vocals. I'm just not big on that style but this is too good to ignore or to not appreciate. This was album number four for the band released in 1998, a bleak time for Prog. The cover art will be getting no rewards that's for sure.

"The Awful Truth" opens with drums, piano and more with that strong Classical bent. Sounds like horns, percussion and other intricate sounds as well. It turns powerful after 2 minutes then settles back, A marching styled rhythm after 4 1/2 minutes and I like that angular guitar after 6 1/2 minutes. A very Classical instrumental to get us started.

"Bagliore(Glimmer)" has a brighter and more melodic sound as Alberto comes in with some restrained vocals at first. He does get passionate and check out those vocal melodies. Synths lead before 2 minutes with piano and a heavy rhythm section as the vocals step aside. Vocals are back before 3 minutes along with an urgent sound. It seems to start over again before 3 1/2 minutes with vocals and piano. A top three and one that kept getting stuck in my head.

"His Maddening Certainty" opens with synths, drums, piano, bass and more. It turns aggressive around 2 minutes then settles right down after 3 minutes with keys, synths and a Classical vibe. It picks up again at 6 minutes with drums and synths leading before settling back around 7 minutes. "Not A River" opens with piano, violin and horns in a Classical setting. The tempo picks up some and check out the violin on this track, so impressive! Synths lead for a minute then a calm arrives with sparse sounds coming and going.

"The (AG)Nostic Gospels" is another Classical sounding instrumental with drums, synths and piano leading the way. Some rare guitar 3 1/2 minutes in. "Stato Di Confusione Avanzata" is a top three. Piano as drums and more join in in this Avant flavoured tune. Some nice bass too. It becomes Classical sounding a minute in and Alberto arrives shortly after this. The tempo picks up at 2 minutes with synths leading then Alberto is back singing. Piano and drums lead after 3 minutes. I like that bass a minute later. A solemn mood here as Piras returns vocally.

"The Dust On My Mother's Bible" is something I could never say thankfully. Piano and drums create a heavy groove then synths and piano join in bringing that Classical sound after 1 1/2 minutes. Back to the earlier sound as this track continues to change slightly and themes are repeated. Some angular guitar around 7 1/2 minutes.

"When Faith Transcends Reason" is a top three for those incredible vocal arrangements. Oh my! When the vocals stop it becomes very experimental. You have to hear this. "Ken Who?" is Mr. Golden? Anyway we get mournful strings to start before some strong piano work takes over. Synths too in this Classical sounding closer.

This is completely different music from what "The Remedy Of Abstraction" has to offer. I am glad I won this though although it's sure not for the cover art. If your into the Classical side of things please check this one out.

4 stars This is improv at its best!

Sometimes things that come without a strict plan give a truly positive result if the magic comes from people who share what they love in total freedom. This time, Wingfield, Reuter and Sirkis have created a wonderful released entitled Lighthouse, which naturally could remind you of 'The Stone House', but without the support of bass maestro Yaron Stavi because curiously, this session was recorded first though released second. These three musicians offer here 7 improvisations of music that is not easy to classify, but who cares when you are enjoying what you are listening.

'Zinc' is the first track and there is an evident sound of tension during the whole track, but don't get me wrong, the tension is not between the musicians, it lies on the atmosphere that musical freedom of speech produces. The drums are wonderful, delicious and unstoppable, jazzy all the way, while guitars provide that Crimsonian sound that in moments brings chaos. 'Derecho' brings Sirkis explosive drumming, its endless sounds and rhythms keep the listener quite intrigued and waiting for what's next, those drums are in fact hypnotic. The sounds provided by guitar and touch guitar are both amazing but chaotic, creating a complex combo that after 5 minutes slow down a little bit just to re-plan the upcoming passage.

'Ghost Light' is a much calmer improv. Here the guitars bring soundscapes that may allow us to label this song as an ambient one, remembering some of Reuter's solo albums but also that inherent King Crimson influence he has. After the chaos and tension of the first tracks, this one provides deep relaxing moments. So take a breath, close you eyes and enjoy the trip (which is long but pleasant, by the way). Another long track is 'Magnetic', but it is superb! It progresses little by little bringing countless nuances and taking again those jazzy drums blend with the soundscapes and a kind of organ that sounds as background creating a drone atmosphere. Crimsonian guitars appear here and there and the chaos somehow is back.

'A Hand in the Dark' is a much shorter improv and to be honest, I think it is my least favorite track; maybe it had to be longer to reach the depth I needed to get engaged with it. 'Transverse Wave' could have been the second part of its predecessor, but this is to my ears, more interesting and even deep. Wingfield's guitar is soft and smooth, while the touch guitar appears here and there creating a nice relaxing communion. It flows wonderfully and gives us a cool break.

The last track is 'Surge', which despite being the shortest of the album, it is so powerful, jazz-rock-prog improv that make us even shake our heads in some moments. Not my favorite track, but a cool way to finish this amazing blend of improvised textures.

Enjoy it!

Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

5 stars Recorded during the same sessions that resulted in the release of the highly critically acclaimed 'Stone House', 'Lighthouse' again finds guitarist Mark Wingfield working with Markus Reuter (touch guitars) and Asaf Sirkis on drums. However, this time they have worked as a trio, so there is no room for bassist Yaron Stavi who appeared on the first album. Recorded in a single day, what we have here are three musicians, all at the very top of their game, who are challenging the preconceived ideas of music, and are bouncing off each other in what must have been an incredibly frenetic and inspiring environment.

Markus most often plays the role of lynch pin, holding the music into some semblance of constraint, while Mark rolls into multiple musical tangents as his fingers and mind wanders, finding their way through the maze of their mind, and then there is Asaf. The man is a multi-joined octopus, who hands and legs obviously do not belong to the same body, and I was intrigued to discover just how many times my attention was being drawn from what many would think was the lead instrument, and was instead marvelling at the complexity and many different styles he was bringing to the party.

This is jazz, it is fusion, it is progressive in its very truest sense, and is totally off the wall. This won't be for everyone, but to my mind and ears there is something incredibly special about this album, where the three of them are improvising both against and with each other, taking their instruments the limit of musicality. A stunning release.

3 stars This is an album that seems to be universally loved. Well except for yours truly because Bluesy rock that is listener friendly just doesn't do much for me. Of course there's much more here than that but this sounds like so many bands from back in the day. PATTO is named after it's vocalist Mike Patto who has a rough bluesy voice but we also get some players here in drummer John Halsey and especially guitarist Peter "Ollie" Halsall. The inventive moments are so impressive but then there's that commercial sounding bluesy stuff that does nothing for me. Love the cover art.

"The Man" is a surprisingly laid back opener with tasteful guitar, a beat and reserved vocals. Some vibes around 2 1/2 minutes as the vocals and guitar step aside and they return just before 4 minutes. It does turn fuller and we get more passionate vocals with active drumming late. "Hold Me Back" has more energy to it but it's still a straight forward song with the focus on the vocals mostly. Some really nice guitar from around 2 minutes in to before 3 1/2 minutes when the vocals return. It's okay.

"Time To Die" has these acoustic guitar melodies and fragile vocals but drums and bass join in quickly. A folky tune. "Red Glow" has this sixties sounding guitar intro as the bass and drums support and vocals join in. The vocals stop at 1 1/2 minutes as the guitar lets it rip for about a minute. This happens again 4 minutes in. "San Antone" opens with guitar, bass and drums as they sort of stutter along as vocals join in and man this sounds lame. Commercial drivel.

"Government Man" is a song where the focus is on the story. "Money Bag" really comes across as Free Jazz the way we get such an unmelodic soundscape, especially the relentless guitar that is so annoying. This goes on unmercifully until it ends just before 6 1/2 minutes! The vocals and calm take over at this point. This is somewhat jazzy and whimsical really the rest of the way. "Sittin' Back Easy" ends it and we get a folky vibe here until it turns fuller with more passionate vocals. Contrasts continue until we get some nice guitar work after 3 minutes.

Should get some hate mail over this one but I really don't get the appeal and no they shouldn't have been more popular than they were.

4 stars Oh, yes, Fa-Bu-Lous ! I'm truly mesmerized by this album, an achievement as I didn't have the chance to experience in a long time.

This relatively young band, though already in its fourth album, achieves with this one a real peak of creativity and innovation. This is an instrumental melting pot of the highest grade, if like me you are a sucker for fusion this one's for you.

Every twenty seconds we can hear a different style and just as you start guessing what the influence might have been the mood changes again and there they go in a new direction. What a ride! Over an hour of constant musical exploration, never dull, never tiresome.

But I guess it's one of those cases - either you love it at first hearing or you'll hate it forever, it's that defying. (If I come back later most certainly will raise to five stars, for now my rating is "Excellent")

Guitar Heaven
Santana Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars Is this a Guitar Heaven, is this the right title? Yes, it is! That is my conclusion, both as a huge Carlos Santana fan and a guitar player myself.

The great thing on this album is that Santana has incorporated his very distinctive (but also very versatile) guitar sound in the 14 more or less classic guitar compositions. Of course he is known as a kind of Mr. Sustain but Santana can deliver both intense blues runs as biting wah wah pedal guitarplay. So that's why he took the challenge and succeeded 'cum laude' in my opinion. The 14 tracks sound fresh and dynamic and feature lots of inventive and surprising arrangements. A fine example are the cello and harpsichord during the intro of the blues classic While My Guitar Gently Weeps (George Harrison) and then wonderful tremolo play on the acoustic guitar.

A strong element on this CD is the wide range of male and female singers, all colouring the music in their own special way. Like Rob Thomas (known from the worldwide hit Smooth with Santana) in Sunshine Of Your Love (Cream). Or rapper Nas in Back In Black (AC/DC) and the 'living legend' Joe Cocker in Little Wing (Jimi Hendrix).

My favorite moments are the exciting version of Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin), the beautiful interplay between a psychedelic sounding organ and fiery guitar in Riders On The Storm (The Doors) and awesome Hammond organ and wah wah pedal guitarwork in the catchy Smoke On The Water (Deep Purple). My 'DeLuxe Edition' contains two bonustracks and an interesting DVD featuring The Making Of Guitar Heaven and an interview with Carlos Santana. Another nice bonus is the inclusion of a hologram picture of the front cover.

This is a terrific album, check out Santana and guitar freaks and take a trip to Guitar Heaven!

Hiromi Uehara Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Hiromi Uehara is a piano prodigy from Japan and this album seems to get tagged as her best. A four piece band of bass, drums, guitar and keyboards and the only name I recognize is that of guitarist David Fiuczynski who was part of the band SCREAMING HEADLESS TORSOS. I recently reviewed Hermann Szobel's only release from 1975 and him being somewhat of a piano prodigy himself it was interesting to compare the two albums. Hermann's is much more to my liking as it's a true Jazz/ Fusion release while Hiromi's album here veers into traditonal jazz territory too often for my tastes. Still a very good 4 star album in my opinion but it won't go down as one of my favourites from that sub-genre. I'm so glad to have finally spent some time with this album though.

So what we have here is an all instrumental concept album about "time". It's a little over an hour long but we also get an over 12 minute bonus track that fits well with the rest of the album. Up first is "Time Difference" and it starts with piano melodies only before it kicks in quickly to a full sound. Synths after 1 1/2 minutes as it settles down with bass and drums helping out. The guitar starts to trade off with the synths starting around 3 minutes. Nice section. Relaxed guitar and synths before 4 1/2 minutes and the guitar is crying out.

"Time Out" has a catchy and somewhat funky groove to it as the guitar comes in over top. Some humerous vocals from Hiromi played through her synths really makes me laugh as I work with this young Asian girl who moved here from China a few years ago. She's a great person by the way named Ying. Back to the piano and guitar led section but the funk is long gone. Beautiful piano melodies after 5 minutes. A pretty good song overall.

"Time Travel" opens with spacey synths which is a nice change as they create atmosphere. Tastefully picked guitar joins in but soon the piano arrives then drums a minute in as the atmosphere stops. Jazzy stuff with some nice drum work. Check out that guitar with bass and drums before 2 1/2 minutes. Oh my! Nasty keyboard sounds after 4 minutes as it becomes intense. Back to that uptempo jazzy sound at 4 1/2 minutes. This is impressive and especially the drumming starting before 6 1/2 minutes. The intro is reprised late.

"Deep Into The Night" is one of my favourites on here. It's so beautiful to begin with as we get relaxed piano and guitar. A full sound kicks in at 1 1/2 minutes before it settles back again with piano leading the way. It kicks in again after 4 minutes with piano still leading the way until after 5 minutes when the guitar takes more of the spotlight as the piano continues. A calm with piano only after 6 1/2 minutes then some impressive guitar a minute later then it becomes more powerful.

"Real Clock Vs. Body Clock = Jet Lag" is catchy with tempo shifts in play. Suddenly piano and an experimental but humerous section takes over. I like the guitar starting before 2 minutes as contrasts continue. Sounds like clavinet that ends before 4 minutes then some silliness again.

"Time And Space" does have more space to it as sounds come and go until it becomes steady after 1 1/2 minutes. Back to that stuttering sounds coming and going with space. The guitar starts to doodle starting around 3 minutes and continues until after 4 1/2 minutes when the piano takes over. It suddenly picks up around 7 1/2 minutes to end it.

"Time Control, Or Controlled By Time" opens with fast paced piano melodies then the guitar comes in ripping it up around a minute. It settles to a jazzy mode before 2 minutes. Some intensity starting after 3 minutes with random drum patterns and bass. A jazzy calm takes over after 4 minutes with the piano leading. It does pick up again with the guitar and piano leading. Great sound after 8 minutes with that guitar, drums and piano standing out.

"Time Flies" has these relaxed piano and synths for the first two minutes then the guitar, bass and drums join in. Pleasant is the word. I like this. Beautiful piano melodies come to the fore after 5 1/2 minutes. "Time's Up" ends it with a less than one minute closer. This sounds so amazing too with so much going on then out of the blue a man yells "Time's up!" and it's over.

If your more into traditional Jazz but don't mind those Fusion flourishes then you really need to check this girl out.
