5.0 out of 5 stars Simply astounding April 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is my first exposure to JMP, and I have to say I was absolutely blown away. Not right at first. It took about three times through before I could completely get on board with their admittedly bizarre musical esthetic, which, finally, became for me unique and beguiling, even mesmerizing. Part jazz, part jam band, part techno-trance, part power trio, JMP could most logically be put in a similar category to groups like The Bad Plus and EST. Just as Ethan Iverson's approach to jazz piano is anything but typical, Jamie Masefield's mandolin playing bears about as much resemblance to traditional mandolin playing as Bela Fleck's banjo playing bears to traditional banjo stylings. Not that JMP sound much if anything like Bela Fleck's band.
What does it sound like? It's hard to say. Ari Hoenig brings a lot of diverse influences to his drumming besides straight jazz, including hip-hop, techno, and drum and bass sensibilities, thus giving the band a thoroughly modern sound. Danton Boller plays his acoustic bass in a decidedly untraditional way as well. But it all starts and ends with Masefield's mandolin and mandola. Leaning heavily on an amplified approach, he gets sounds from his instrument one would not think possible. I found myself several times checking the disc packaging to see who's the guest electric guitarist. Talk about extended technique! If there are no overdubs on this album it's even more astounding.
Perhaps not for everyone, this band nevertheless has staked out its own unique musical territory. Word is that they're also killer live. Check 'em out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rip-roaring rollercoaster thrill ride April 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Jungle Tango is unreal. Keep in mind that's Ari Hoenig on drums, not a drum machine. I was blown away. This album is full of mind-bending sounds and the coolest grooves ever. It's way different than "Tour de Flux," with the exception of a couple songs. If you're in doubt, don't be. Jungle Tango is a solid listen. After I listened to the album in it's entirety for the first time I wished so much that I could tell the band how truly amazing the listening experience I just had was. Jamie Masefield is an unbelievable musician. Buy this album. You won't regret it.
