4 stars Trioscapes is one of the hottest new fusion groups that I've heard recently. Despite consisting of only a drummer, a flute/saxophone player and a bassist, this band a completely full fusion sound. They have the punk aggression of Paranoise, the wild experimentalism of Nick Didkovsky's Doctor Nerve, and the technical chops of some of fusions greatest stars.

The majority of the songs are made up of wild rhythm tracks laid down by the drummer, Matt Lynch and bassist Dan Briggs, with Walter Fancourt soloing overhead. Occasionally, there are overdubs, and at times Briggs solos on the higher notes on his bass, sounding almost like an electric guitar.

The result is both dangerous and exciting, and a sure fire member of my summer cruising rotation.

Oh, and the final track on the album appears to be an homage to the 1980's lineup of King Crimson. With the weaving of bass and sax, and sustained high bass notes imitating Fripp's soaring guitar, it's another treat.

Evolver | 4/5 |
