Product Description

R.E.M.'s Peter Buck is the selling point for this Seattle-based neo-beat instrumental quartet. The real stars here, though, are Critters Buggin' horn man Skerik and Screaming Trees/latter-day R.E.M. percussionist Barrett Martin. The well-integrated melange of bebop jazz, rock, world music, and lounge-y TV themes makes for a hugely entertaining listen.--Jeff Bateman

One of the many things I was listening to in the 70's (and passionate about) was fusion jazz. I was way into Jeff Beck's instrumental period, Tony Williams, Herbie Hancock, Return to Forever, Mahavishnu--lots of those guys. Many today would dismiss that stuff as bloated and pretentious, but I grew up with that stuff and dug it (and still do). Therefore, this disc was an instant favorite with me.
It's an ambitious project, a hybrid of world music, jazz, rock, etc. and to me, it works. Probably because I have said soft spot for this type of stuff. Most of it would make a great accompaniment to other activities where you want a certain type of mood that remains throughout. The one exception is the song "The Getaway," which is the most raucous (and my favorite). This one is an obscure gem, and worthy of more exposure.

I bought this CD after hearing several tracks used as bumper music on NPR. While it was not exactly what I expected based on that experience, I am not disappointed.
There's a strong eastern influence in many of the tracks - sounding, indeed, like a "smoky Zanzibar lounge," as Entertainment Weekly put it. A more sultry collection would be hard to find.
For me, the true test of a CD is whether I like it more the more I hear it. "Breaking the Ethers" passes the test - and then some.

This cd rocks!! It is a great way to break out of the norm. Every song has its own charisma. From great sax riffs to awesome drum beats. This cd has it all.
