ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dann Glenn has created by far, his most progressive and creative work with this recording.

When Dann was assembling the players for this remarkable modern free jazz recording, he sought out the most forward-thinking and finest players he could find. While doing so, he came across UK fretless bassist Jason Marsh.

DG not only brought Jason on-board as a bassist, but was so impressed with his innate ability to think in the abstract, (a crucial element in the making of this music) he also asked Marsh to produce the record, as well.

The creation of this music has spawned a new and exciting alliance between Glenn and Marsh, which can only lead to more breathtaking, groundbreaking, and above all beautiful music, in the years to come.

Eclectic Electric
First off, it seems like I just downloaded Eleven Eleven Orchestra when this became available. Are there two Dann Glenns making cutting edge jazz fusion out there? This CD is truly avant garde, which is unusual with guitar as the lead voice. Dann Glenn seems to be bound by none of the restrictions of most musicians or critics. If he has to create a new vocabulary for his instrument to do what he desires, well, Dann sheds until that new vocabulary flows from his instrument. In this case, the result is, well, Electric!

Another masterpiece!
This man...this band...never ceases to amaze. Yesterday, I got home from a day at my store and needed a break. Voila! ELECTRIC! The energy started with "The Invisible" and continued....but when Ventriloquist came on, something magical happened. Maybe it was the second beer. Nah...this is the WAY to relax. The flute and guitar...not at all expected, but it worked. "Moving at the Speed of Lint" hit me the same way...maybe I was just in a woodwind mood. I think I can listen to ELECTRIC for the next week and hear something different. But this is the way it should be with jazz. The players improvise...why not the listeners?

Sonic Perfection
Superb collection of free flowing musical thought. A must buy for the jazz fusion lover. Glenn and toupee travel down a mystical sonic landscape, constantly exploring all its hills and valleys. Dann blazing guitar riffs are front and center. Tearing up the fretboard like a man possessed. Backed by some very solid players who support his eclectic compositions. Glenn's work is not afraid to break new ground. Definitely not cookie cutter jazz here, but the really deal.
Be sure to give this a spin.

CAUTION: Masters at Work
Freedom. Intense. Thought-provoking. Good Friends. Incredible playing.
There are certain times in a music aficionados life that stand out. When I was first turned on to Dann Glenn's music I had a reaction I have not had in decades, and have just about completed the available catalog. This last happened when I was turned on to Charles Mingus in the late 70's/early 80's. After, I went on a binge of purchasing everything available by Mingus. Many days were spent rummaging used record stores and record shows hunting down original releases, including a beautiful 6-eye Columbia of the Mingus, Ah Um.
Listen. Learn. Enjoy. Then buy the rest.
