iTunes Review

The three members of this all-star outfit— keyboardist John Medeski (MMW, etc.), saxophonist Skerik (Garage a Trois, etc.), and drummer Adam Deitch (John Scofield, Lettuce, etc.)—are primarily known for their ability to lay down some funky jazz jams. This debut doesn’t have that overt bead on groove; instead it mixes beats with an eerie cornucopia of textures, sounds, and wandering riffs that recall Miles Davis’ more abstract electric material from the early ’70s. There are, however, chances to shake a rump on the psychedelic groove of “Count Chokulous,” the percolating Afrobeat of “Shmeeans Kuti,” and the breakbeat-driven “Scars.”

Darkness to Light

One of my favorite records yet this year. Skerik, John Medeski and Adam Deitch along with producer Randall Dunn deliver a magnum opus with this release. The name of the band is completely apropos as the music comes in big, bold, dark waves of psychedelic sound. The sonics are multi-dimensional. And ultimately in all of this musical darkness comes incredible moments of light as each of the three musicians find their moments to break through and shine with concise concepts and ideas that provide a perfect counter-balance.


Best lineup since Bucket of Bernie's Brains. Really hope they make more albums. Pure eargasmic.
