David Fiuczynski Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian MicroJam! on Limited Edition LP
David Fiuczynski is without a doubt one of the greatest guitarists in the world of jazz and rock today, both from a technical and from a creative/compositional standpoint. Originally known as the funanbolic guitarist and founder of funk-jam band Screaming Headless Torsos, David has since evolved his craft immeasurably via a string of remarkable releases which investigate and develop the integration of microtonal canons and techniques with western grooves.
Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Micro-Jam! is Fiuczynski's second major label foray into groove driven microtonal world music and jazz. The astounding recording is based on compositions he wrote for the Guggenheim Prize: accompanied by his students from the Berkeley's Micro-Jam Music Department, and enlisting the support of saxophone colossus Rudresh Mahanthappa. Fuze takes the listener on a musical tour de force spanning America and Asia, bridging the worlds of Messiaen, JDilla and Japanese Gagaku Music.
