4 stars The American band OZONE QUARTET released their first CD, "Fresh Blood", in 1997. This is the second album from this quite unusual band that is playing unusual music on unusual instruments. The set-up consists of Chapman Stick, Drums and many different percussion instruments, Electric Violin and Guitars. Hollis Brown are playing the Electric Violin, and he's perhaps the most important musician in the band, as the violin is the main lead instrument most of the time. OZONE QUARTET's music is an all-instrumental mix between funky jazz-fusion and progressive rock, with reminiscent to APOCALYTICA, BOUD DEUN, DIXIE DREGS, FLESHQUARTET, KING CRIMSON, KROUMATA, LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT and MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA. Although there's a lot of time changes and odd-time signatures, the music is quite easy-listened considering the complexity. The highlights are "Flood", "Backbone Of Night" and "Diamond Eye" which contains a wonderful show-off on the Chapman Stick. This is a very exciting CD to explore and you won't get tired when listening to it. Recommended!
