Editorial Reviews

This is the fourth album for the Canadian jazz-rock quartet, a tight-knit band that's been together since 1997 when the Vancouver pair of trumpeter-keyboard player Brad Turner and bassist Chris Tarry first teamed up with New York resident drummer Ian Froman and Toronto saxophonist Mike Murley. The band's style comes directly from Miles Davis's electric bands and their more significant offshoots, and there's enough funk in the current mix to suggest Medeski Martin & Wood as well. Here the band has some very special guests along on a few tunes--John Scofield, DJ Logic, and Mino Cinelu--and the results are sensational. Cinelu adds percolating metallic percussion to the band's already potent rhythms on four tunes, including the extended "Steeplejack." Scofield's solos bubble across the band's grooves on "Strollin'" and "Bumpus," while "New Pants," with Scofield and Logic, is a wittily funky feature for Turner's trumpet. The band's strong roots in acoustic jazz come to the fore on "Mr. Mike," a track that highlights Murley's smoothly swinging tenor. The Recline is a good introduction to a band with its own identity. The guest stars might get your attention, but Metalwood can hold it as well. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz-Funk of the Highest Order August 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm new to Metalwood, and I don't know a whole lot about them. I do know that Ian Froman is a great drummer, and that he has appeared on several discs by Tommy Smith, the fine British tenor saxophonist. I also know of Mike Murley. He's a Canadian, I believe, and has been active on that jazz scene for quite a few years. The other two players, Brad Turner, trumpet and keys, and Chris Terry, el. bass, I've never heard before.
What first struck me is how jazz-oriented they are for a funk outfit--which is both suprising and good, in my opinion. In that regard, they remind me a little of Voodoo Dogs, the exceptional band of Larry Goldings and Bob Ward. I suppose it's because Metalwood comes from a straight ahead jazz background and aesthetic. But you don't always get a proper jazz grounding in these funk groups (e.g., check out some of the rather mediocre jazz-funk outings of John Scofield who, BTW, makes three effective guest appearances here).
Murley, especially, seems to keep things properly oriented in a jazz direction. He sounds very confident and assured, whether playing as part of the ensemble or soloing. Attractive tunes, telepathic interaction, great grooves, some tasty percussion by guest Mino Cinelu, and it all adds up to a killer performance. Don't miss out on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cd, poor service August 22, 2010
By Zane
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this item new, but when the album shipped, the cd case was badly cracked, as if someone had smashed it with a textbook. The cd itself was in good condition. The seller, vs music, apparently doesn't sell this album any longer, but I thought this was worth noting in case they do sell The Recline again.

The music itself is superb. Metalwood was among the top fusion bands of its time; the Weather Report of Canada. This album quickly became among my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect mix of jazz and electric funk July 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This group has the perfect mix between jazz and funk. The compositions are fun to listen to, and can't be compared to any jazz or funk that I've heard. Brad Turner uses synths and electric piano liberally, but tastefully. His trumpet playing is also shown on this CD, which he is also very talented with. The other players, who I had not heard of before, were surprisingly solid and skillful in their playing.
