I prefer the second version of this band with Gary Novak but even then, some of those patches are just about as Dentist's office as it gets. I wonder if Marienthal and Weckl fought over the blow dryer on the road? RIP Chick.
Seeing Frank w the Electric Band reminded me I used to love it too. The whole bepop subversion of jazz thing a few months ago reminds me of fusion. I could really dig this as an approachable form of music. Such a shame it never got past nerd music for instrumentalists.
