O’s Notes: Drummer Billy Martin leads another free fusion effort featuring pyrotechnic guitar work, explosive, funky drumming and world jazz beats. The session was recorded live in New York early in 2005 to an appreciative audience. “Purification Of Wounds” morphs from spacey free jazz to acid fusion and then a funky reggae club beat on Part 2. This continuous mood shift typifies the session. It works for their fans with Billy holding it all together.
