Album Review

Something rare in jazz, Conjunction is billed to a rhythm section: drummer Mike Clark, bassist Paul Jackson, and vibraphonist Marc Wagnon, although the latter gets a leading role in this outfit, thanks to his great technique and his use of MIDI vibes to expand the soloing range of his instrument. This trio is completed by four guest musicians: guitarist extraordinaire David "Fuze" Fiuczynski, tenor sax Jed Levy, trombonist Josh Roseman, and reedist Chris Speed. This impressive lineup can be reduced to a quartet ("Horta-Culture") and go up to a sextet (on five tracks). If one takes out the post-bop ballad "Horta-Culture," the music on this CD lies somewhere between Pierre Moerlen's Gong and the Chick Corea Elektric Band, although funkier than any of them. "East West" and "Conjunction" provide the most satisfactory moments: a driving rhythm section, hot brass licks, and nice guitar. Fiuczynski sounds shy on this album; his work remains rather uninvolved, a feeling reinforced by the fact that his guitar is kept low in the mix. Otherwise, Conjunction makes an enjoyable album both for casual listening and for close-up inspection (you can spend hours studying Wagnon's intricate patterns). Not best-of-the-year material, but a job well done. ~ François Couture, Rovi

Customer Reviews

It doesn't get any funkier than this...

Mike Clark and Paul Jackson are easily the tightest and funkiest rhythm section in existence. This album is ridiculous.

Biography

Born: Lausanne, Switzerland

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '90s

Though his talent as a percussionist was immediately evident, the real story of Marc Wagnon's success is one of a series of fortunate encounters with equally prodigious artists. Born in Lausanne, Switzerland, his early musical tastes focused on progressive rock bands like King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Yes and Genesis. He was also impressed with the fusion sounds of Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. It was a Gary Burton concert, though, which helped him focus his desire to become a musician...
