Hectic Watermelon

Guitarist John Czajkowski has produced “The Great American Road Trip”, with Darren “D-Ride” DeBree on drums, Harley Magsino on bass, and special guest, Mahavishnu Orchestra alumnus, Jerry Goodman on electric violin. And what a road trip it is. These guys hit it hard from the opening measure, driving through odd time signatures, syncopations and polyrhythms like a Humvee. At times funk, jazz, metal, prog-rock, avante garde, you name it, this disc will grab you and not let go. Five tracks are spinning now.

Kiko Loureiro - Universo Inverso

Those of you familiar with Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro are most likely aware of his extensive metal discography. So prepare for a 180…. this is some of the classiest, yet entirely edgy jazz-fusion these ears have come across in a long time. Plenty of credit has to be shared with the three other fantastic players on the disc: Yaniel Matos, who wrote a number of the songs, Cuca Teixeira on drums and Carlinhos Noronha on bass. Catch six tracks off the album on the station, and run out and buy the disc at — you’re in for a treat.
