Editorial Reviews

Based on the music of Arabia, Asia, and Eastern-Europe, "Kif" is Eastern Exotica and Western Exstatica. It ranges from rocked-out madness to plaintive meditations, and effortlessly incorporates the sounds of the East with the grooves of the West. David Fiuczynski's wild guitar palette and Rufus Cappadocia's deeply soulful, bluesy cello balance the music between high energy funky world jazz-rock and moving, emotional ballads. The CD features Fuze on fretted and fretless guitar, 12-string quartertone guitar and shortscale 11-string guitar, and Cappadocia plays electric 5-string cello. Features Gene Lake and Tobias Ralph (drums), Daniel Sadownick (percussion), Matt Darriau (Eastern European reeds) and Lian Amber (vocals).

Format:Audio CD
It's long been known to his fans that Dave "Fuze" Fiuczynski, in addition to the many hats he wears as the bandleader of Screaming Headless Torsos and a sometime faculty member of the Berklee School of Music in Boston, is one of the most blindingly innovative and criminally unsung guitar heroes of the last decade, but this release will present a different side of him from the punk/funk/fusion/metal/jazz insanity that peoples his other projects. Like countless musicians before him, the Fuze has turned his muse to the East...
...by way of Mars, apparently. He teams with electric cellist Rufus Cappadocia (along with fellow Torsos Danny Sadownick and Gene Lake) for 10 exotic, exhilirating, experimental, and downright weird tracks, all of them imbued with non-Western flavors. Composing with scales, modes, and quarter-tone tunings reminiscient of Egyptian, Arabic, North African, South Asian/Indian, and even Chinese idioms, the Fuze presents some of the most stridently lyrical and evocative work of his career, highlighting his mastery of the fretless guitar--an instrument on which past recordings have hinted at his ability, but featured here as a mainstay instrument to imitate sitar, oud, and even koto/shamisen(?). Some of these exotic grooves wouldn't sound out of place in a bazaar in Marrakech or Cairo...highlights include the sinister undulations of Mektoub, the joyful, danceable syncopation and bouncy riffs of Phrygianade and the hilariously funny R&B-groove-meets-Chinese-restaurant shuffle of Chinese Go-go. Not to be missed; Fuze is one of a kind and this latest release shows him pushing the envelope even further than before.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can start loving this album now . . . or now November 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm simply in awe. Words cannot describe the emotions that this music is bringing out of me. It's like nothing I have ever heard before. Now that very well be my ignorance, but it's amazing music nonetheless. I think the other reviewer described the music pretty well, I'm just here to tell you that you need this album right now. I honestly cannot believe Fuze is not more well known, at least by guitarists . . . he's such a great musician (not to mention the other musicians on this album, all of them do a great job). The drum'n'bass grooves are so tasty I'm going to explode.
I'm still in awe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thye real mccoy July 5, 2011

Fuse pulols it out and waves it around, in company with the cellist. Not all tracks to the same standard but a must have for nfusion fanatics

3.0 out of 5 stars An exploration more than a statement June 1, 2013
By Greg
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album explores a variety of backgrounds for virtuoso guitarist Fiuczynski to play fretless guitars and odd modes. It is a masterful meandering album. My personal tastes do not agree with many of the low tempo tracks. I am used to listening to Gabriel Marin of CTS and was jarred by Fiuczynski's approach to the fretless sound. This album contains many strong experiments that do not result in a well-planned album for my ears.
