For "real" music fans, this is a breath of fresh air!
For "real" music fans, this is a breath of fresh air. Equinox is an excellent, inventive solo guitarist, but he is also an impressive/diverse evidenced with this independent epic: "Exploration=Discovery." It is amazing that the group is made of only guitar/bass/drums because the sound expands out so much more in a technicolor Hendrix kind of way.
What is the musical style? Well, that's the cool thing, its more like styleS...plural. Jazz, Thrash, Funk, Fusion, Psychedelia, Guitar-Oriented Piece is the best I can explain. Progressive and arranged, yes. This is music for the mind most definitely. All instrumental of course. You should do yourself a favor and order this CD.

Great fusion with a message
Solstice is a band with a real philosophy at work in its music. Superb musicianship, really interesting compositions, and a commitment to making tracks of lasting value and importance are its hallmarks.

A CD of exciting hard-edged electric fusion music!
The Solstice collective, under the creative leadership of guitarist James Equinox, has released a CD of exciting hard-edged electric fusion music that harkens back to the days before smooth jazz. The CD, "Exploration=Discovery", is a document of a power trio in progress, with some rough edges but a core of energy and drive that reminds us why fusing the creative interplay and searching from jazz and the power of rock was a good idea. The players are all inventive, the music sounds good loud, and promise of this group as it deveops as a band is clearly evident. Equinox brings together his diverse infuences (Miles, Coltrane, McLaughlin), but while respecting their directions, brings his own twist to the music that does not just emulate but enhances. His playing is fluid, and he sounds like he would fit right in to one of Miles' 80s era electric orchestras. Interspersed are some electronic interludes that enhance the suite-like flow of the album. The addition of an additional instrumental soloist voice or two might broaden things, and some enhanced production might help with more clarity, but this music is PLAYED(!), and the spirit it conveys is irrepressable. I enjoyed listening to this CD, I will certainly listen further, and will be looking forward to hearing where James Equinox and Solstice go next!
