Otowala Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Windhawk

— First review of this album —
3 stars Otowala is a US based trio that consists of musicians "of different generations and backgrounds" as the band itself describes it. This self-titled CD is their first album, and was released on what is presumably their own label, Liquid Moon.

Challenging music that can be described as jazz, jazz-rock or possibly fusion is what Otowala provides on their self-titled debut, a production rather void of common rhythms, harmonies and melodies, but rich in experimental flavours. Jazz and fusion enthusiasts with a taste for the uncommon should be something of a target audience for this CD as I regard it, alongside avant-interested progressive rock aficionados.

Thanks to evolver for the artist addition.
