O’s Notes: This dynamic duo – Medeski (organ) and Martin (drums) hit us with a lot of impact. They start blasting on the opener, with a sense of randomness and swirl that comes together near the conclusion with incredibly syncopated beats. If you don’t have a meltdown when they finally come up for air, you’ll sync with the funky club beats of “Crustaceatron”. They continue with the funky theme on “Mojet” which will get your feet pattin’. This is avant fusion with no shortage of creativity over eleven +1 tunes. If you are aligned, it is thrilling. Otherwise, it can be challenging.
