Here's some stuff I've been listening to lately...
Harold Davis Jr (aka Fro) is a great funk/fusion player out of New York, and his stuff is super-cool. Sort of a Hendrix-meets-Tribal Tech type of vibe. I'm also digging his Surprise Music EP.
This is Sadites' contribution to Minnemann's Normalizer 2 project, and it's one of my favorites. Great writing and playing with a heavy Zappa vibe.
The bass legend's latest includes guests Joe Satriani, Frank Gambale, and Robert Fripp. Cool stuff.
Excellent jazz album from the New York-based sax player. Love Wayne Krantz's melodic lines on the title track.
Great, adventurous jazz blues record. Arnold's fusion disc Heavy Mental is also cool.
