David Fiuczynski biography
David "FUZE" Fiuczynski is a Jazz Rock/ Fusion artist born in the United States, but raised in Germany. David returned to the US to attend college and earned his Bachelor of Music degree in 1989 from the New England Conservatory and a Masters in Music in 2008. He has been teaching music for the past 15 years, and is a full-time professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Fuze started out with the Jazz Fusion/ Funk band SCREAMING HEADLESS TORSOS and has also been a member of HASIDIC NEW WAVE, as well as collaborated with many other artists like John MEDESKI, Dennis Chambers, Jeff BERLIN, T Lavitz, GONGZILLA and HIROMI Uehara among others. He has appeared on over 95 albums by other artists, as well as a handful of albums under his own name.

In 1994, his collaboration with keyboardist Martin MEDESKI entitled LUNAR CRUSH, was chosen by Guitar Player's 30th anniversary edition as a "Disc of Destiny", hailed as one of the most influential albums of the last thirty years. The album received accolades from critics and fans alike and earned him a spot on the cover of Guitar Player as a pioneer who could "change the way you play."

In 1995, Fuze released another album with his first professional group, SCREAMING HEADLESS TORSOS titled "1995". Described as a band that "blended jazz knowhow with a love for heavy riffs", they were chosen as one of the top ten bands of 1996 by Musician Magazine and inspired a number of cover bands all over the world. The Torsos also released albums "2005" and a double live DVD "Live in New York and Paris" and they were chosen by Downbeat Magazine?s Critics Poll as "Rising Star - Jazz electric group", in 2004. Musically both in his own solo albums and those with the TORSOS, there is a grand of jazz with rock, blues and good old fashioned soul, distilling out as a really modern sounding music, lead by a guitarist who has a unique, and fresh style - his covers of HENDRIX, COREA, etc. have shown him to be an original arranger and re-interpreter of standards. Some critics have called Fuze "wild", voiced concerns when it was announced he was to work with HIROMI - but here, in particular, he has demonstrated he is quite at home being a constrained player and in fact complimenting her music very well.

Fiuczynski's experimental work mixes funk-rock, jazz, ambient improvisations, world-music, metal, reggae, house, dun, drum & bass, and other genres with his excellent songwriting capabilities and amazing soloing. In res...

3 stars This has to be one of the most unusual and outrageous albums that I have ever heard. David is a master of the guitar, and combined with his love of free jazz then the results can be musically different to say the least. Although he has been recording since 1994 this is his first solo album, which was initially recorded for a jazz label that then refused to release it as they found it 'shocking'. It was only in an out of court settlement that Fuze managed to get the recording back, and he has now released it on his own label.

I can understand why a jazz label would have had kittens over this. I grew up listening to jazz and I have not heard anything quite like this. There are areas that conform to normal jazz ideas, but these are rare. David goes off at tangents, getting sounds from his guitar I didn't think possible. His use of fretless guitar as well as fretted adds to his own unique sound. If you enjoy Steve Vai or Joe Satriani then be aware that there is another phenomenal guitarist around, but be warned, although this is an album of 'standards' you will have never heard any of them played like this before (he has turned "Third Stone From The Sun" into a new song completely). A challenging album, but worth the effort. Visit the web site at www.torsos.com.

4 stars One of the best David "Fuze" Fiuczynski album, this time with his Headless Torsos band. All compositions are band's original. Interesting fusion guitarist, who can play with Hiromi Uehara and John Zorn, shows there his original musical world.

In fact, very guitar-based album, it could be placed somewhere between instrumental experimental guitar rock (by its energetic) and heavy jazz fusion. With very complex rhythms, compositions structures and guitar sounds. Not very strong on melodic side, album's music demonstrates high level of technique, and not only David's as guitarist, but all team of musicians.

Sharp, angular very electric guitar sound is perfectly supported by complex jazzy drumming, and some bass inclusions. Possibly not the best album for fans of melodic compositions, but really enjoying one for those with love to great guitar-based electrified jazz-rock.
