Album Review

Garaj Mahal's sixth CD has them continuing to explore contemporary jazz fusion with an Eastern undercurrent, a funky base, and fluid dynamics. Electric guitarist Fareed Haque loves his double-neck electric guitar, and the peerless electric bass guitarist Kai Eckhardt asserts his high-level talent in the manner he did while accompanying John McLaughlin many years prior. With Sean "The Rick" Rickman on drums and keyboardist Eric Levy, Garaj Mahal take many liberties into a dancing-in-your-head type of music with occasional forays into pop tunes. A track like "Witch Doctor" might lead one to a signature sound according to the band's name, a snake charmer's jazz to Indo-funk. Then there's the heavy metal jam of "The Long Form" and the bass-driven "Chester the Pester" in 6/8 time, or the tick-tock funk of "Tachyonics" with light Canterbury-style, airy melodies. In quieter pop singer/songwriter or even folkish tones, and even a piano ballad contributed by Levy, the quartet weaves through various strains of clearly identifiable commercial music while retaining its trailblazing spirit, making for a total listening experience appropriate for many different moods. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Customer Reviews

A Real Nice Fusion!

"American funk, jazz, African-based rhythms and Middle Eastern modalities are all part of the collective sound of Garaj Mahal's More Mr. Nice Guy. That, perhaps, is the "nicest" characteristic of this CD, where there's a multitude of voices sounding from the corners of our blue marble—although "smoking hot" might be a better description. Reminiscent of Return to Forever, fusion and world music, these musicians have a vast tapestry of stories to tell". -Elena Gillespie / All About Jazz
