This is straight-forward jazz coupled with highly funky drumming and excellent guitar work. The drumming is courtesy of Jay Lane, one of the original members of Primus. While I wasn't too impressed with his work on Sausage, here his work greatly complements the guitar work of Charlie Hunter (formerly of Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy). The guitaring is minimalistic and this goes well with Lane's style and kit. What stands out the most in the Trio's music is the excellent saxaphone work of David Ellis. It, along with Hunter's guitar, is what makes the excursions from traditional jazz forms. The bass lines are also pretty cool. The Charlie Hunter Trio is a great example of three people being in synch with each other and producing cool music. If you're ever inclined to foray into the jazz world, be sure to try this out for starters. This album is produced by Les Claypool for Prawnsong. They will be on the Side Stage of Lollapalloza this year (95).
