Customer Reviews

Great!

This album is tasty.

A must for fans of GaT, Stanton, Skerik, Benevento, Dillon...

Great album and even better live. 4 top-notch musicians in the genre. Dory's Day Out is my personal favorite.

Great new album from Garage A Trois!

Power Patriot is Garage A Trois' first album since Marco Benevento replaced founding member guitarist Charlie Hunter, and the album represents a shift away from Hunter's groove influenced funk and towards a more chaotic, dissonant "jazz." However, this album still grooves. Galactic drummer Stanton Moore has spent years in New Orleans as one of the city's most in demand funk and jazz drummers, and his beats ensure that Garage A Trois never reach total dissonance.

Having said that, this album is certainly more dissonant and experimental than any music they have created before, yet strangely listenable. In many ways the addition of Benevento frees Garage A Trois, as his musical vision is much more similar to the weirdness of Skerik and Dillon than Hunter's was. And in live concerts Garage A Trois take these songs to some pretty crazy places, but on the record, melody dominates. The songs are all unusual, written in weird time structures and including an assortment of bizarre noises from Benevento's keyboards, but have strong melodies and riffs that give the songs funky grooves and make them not only listenable but catchy. "Dory's Day Out" and "Electric Door Bell Machine" will get stuck in your head, and the riffs in "Power Patriot" and "Fragile" are pure rock and roll, while "Purgatory" offers spaced out bliss and "Computer Crimes" a glimpse of Marco Benevento's mad genius at work. Garage A Trois still shine brightest on a live stage but this studio effort is rock solid, great grooves and melody, and plenty of impressive instrumental weirdness. Definitely the place to start with this band.

Biography

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Garage a Trois started as a quick one-off improvised session that grew out of sessions originally done for Stanton Moore's All Kooked Out! album in 1999. The lineup — Charlie Hunter on his eight-string guitar, Moore on drums, and Skerik on sax — was basically the same for both projects, but the sound was quite different. On All Kooked Out!, the sound was upbeat and funky but Mysteryfunk (the first Garage a Trois recording) was darker and more atmospheric. Released only on vinyl, Mysteryfunk...
