4 stars Chester Gorilla, I presume named after a bit of a Frank Zappa song on "One Size Fits All", released their debut album in 2020, thirteen years after forming in Palermo Italy in 2007.

While this album is somewhat short, clocking in at just over a half hour, it is very promising.

The songs, mostly instrumental, are primarily inventive jazz-rock, with a blend of fusion and funk. Their sound is smooth and tight, with a sound that reminds me somewhat of the classic Soft Machine, with that 1970's flair of inventive composition, with a bit of humor that they express in both instrumentally and vocally.

Evolver | 4/5 |
