3 stars JAM IT! , damn it!

Heavy prog played as Jazz in a kind of fashionable manner. In some way to introduce you to this Russian jazz rock band from St. Petersburg first release, I will certainly throw some famous names as Return to Forever or Jan Hammer's electronic keyboard progressions as Jeff Beck's jazz/fusion tainted era or the 80's Al Di Meola's releases (without the abundant "Latin" flavors, thank the gods!). In this JAM IT!, 2010, you will encounter a tight musical outfit, which adds up to a unique an explosive metal/jazz performing combo.

The improvisational expectations such a band name provokes, are not that apparent actually or unfocused as they may be imagined, opposite to that, music wise, their performances work like clockwork and maybe in this you will find and feel JAM IT! 's "Jam It!" Waterloo and Wellington. A technically tight performance but with a kind of heartless mechanic feeling, overshadows some of its own best emotional highlights, oddly the acoustic piano sections suffer the most, among others.

Now considering this a first release, in these modern days where over-releasing is a sign of the times, this effort does promise a freer and more heartfelt creation in the future. I do own their next 2 projects, but I am going by the numbers as for now.

***3 "good and fun" PA stars.
