If you haven't got the Jughead CD then you should get that one next.
Philip R. Symons
This album is filled with killer hooky riffs, rumbling & towering leads, & a killer right in the pocket rhythm section!
JAMES MCCORMICK
Don't be bashful Ty, people like myself admire and see you as A one of A kind, you are the MAN, so get used to it!

I'm speaking metaphorically, as what we have here is the side project Platypus after one member has left. (Would this make Jelly Jam a side project of a side project? I'm not sure.) Derek Sherinian and his array of keyboards are off propelling Planet X somewhere else, which leaves Ty Tabor, John Myung and Rod Morgenstein to carry on without him. Hhmmmm.. that means I can't primarily compare them to Deep Purple anymore since Derek's B-3 was the main similarity. I'd say they sound much more like Rush now, but keep in mind that any such simple comparison is inherently inadequate. If they only sounded like a ripoff of someone else, I wouldn't be giving this disc four stars.
So then - take Jelly Jam on its own merits and you'll find a whole lot of variety within the basic power-trio format. Ty's recent solo work and his stint as a frontman for Platypus has really helped him develop his impressive lead skills here. His intelligent pop sensibility is all over the ear-pleasing melodies, his lead vocals are growing by leaps and bounds, and his guitar work (check the title track and "The King's Dance") is nothing short of phenomenal. If I seem to be giving the impression that Ty's the star here, well.. that's mostly the case. This isn't to say the others are lacking in any way. Morgenstein proves yet again why he's one of the most respected unknowns in the business. (On a side note - if you're at all curious about hearing him take part in some more amazing jazz fusion music, go buy anything and everything by the Dixie Dregs. You'll thank me later.) I'm glad Myung has an outlet besides Dream Theater for his almost-superhuman instrumental talent. Where he's mostly a lurking shadow in DT, here he's audible, crunchy and damn near on fire.

Put 3 great players in a room, what do you get? It depends. In this case, wow, we are treated to a very complete sounding album (incredible considering it was written and recorded in about 2 weeks time!). This is no longer Platypus as D. Sherinan has left and the band decided to go with the power trio format (not a real stretch for ty, eh?). We get bathed in lush harmonies, beautiful cymbal work from Rod, and we can finally hear Myung on the bass! On first listen the album grabs you by the ear and pulls you along with "I Cant Help You" which segways into the funky (boy does that guitar riff sound sweet) number "No Remedy". The listener is given a brief respite with the interlude track "Nature" but then is slammed over the head with a ton of bricks by the finger breaking "Nature's Girl" (which has a fantastic chorus). Ty fans who want more growl and guts from Ty (his solo CDs are a bit too pop for my taste) have their call answered on this release. "Feeling" really sounds like Moonflower Lane (ty's second solo CD) material but has an AMAZING vocal harmony part in the middle...it's bone chillingly good. "Reliving" is another soft number with ties to ty's divorce (see his solo album 'safety' for that whole scene). We are then treated to an impromptu studio jam "the jelly jam" with some nice non-shred guitar soloing (choice!). We are taken out of this dream land of floating harmonies with the raucous drumming Rod displays on "I am the King". Myung also shines on this track. "The King's Dance" is another interlude or can be seen as the exit solo to the previous track.Read more ›

A tremendous album, from front to back, light on ballads and sporting a no-nonsense approach to drum-and-guitar shred attitude. _Ice Cycles_ represented a step forward for this group, as Ty pulled out a bunch of strong, moody compositions upon which the band arrived at the sum of its parts. Here, minus one Sherinian, the "power trio" format is augmented from some subtly amazing vocal work and snarling guitar from Ty; urgent yet eloquent drumming from Morgenstein; and sneaky, yet fulfilling chops from a typically low-key Myung.
Not much to complain about here, heres one reviewer's highlight reel: "Nature/Nature's Girl" starts with moody clean Ty guitars but screams out wound so tight you couldnt slip a credit card through the time signature; "Feeling" skates over a descending chorus riff, building an amazing, almost "Pleiades"-like tension until an operatic release (the snippet on tytabor.net was indeed the track that got me excited about this release); the massive song island "The Jelly Jam/I Am The King/The King's Dance" gives the shredophiles exactly what they need, in kindly-measured doses of prog, funk and soloing, ending on a smoking Ty solo that has to be a career highlight; Finally the psychadelic-folk-metal of "Under The Tree" ends on a mystical note with some alternatively sensitive and thundering percussion by Morgenstein.

The Jelly Jam features Ty Tabor on guitar (King's X), John Myung on bass (Dream Theater), & Rod Morgenstein on drums (Dixie Dregs). I would say Jelly Jam is more of a Ty Tabor side project than the others here, since he wrote all the lyrics & most of the music on this album. As you might very well imagine, there is a healthy dose of King's X sounding material on this disc. As a matter of fact "ST" could have been a King's X album (without Pennick's vocal), especially relative to King's X "Gretchen" era.

Jelly Jam "ST" is just a magnificent effort. It is by far the best thing I've ever heard as a King's X side project, & there are many. This album is filled with killer hooky riffs, rumbling & towering leads, & a killer right in the pocket rhythm section! But the most awe inspiring part of "ST" is the amazing song writing that is going on here, especially the musical end. Monster riffs go hand in hand with beautiful & intense melodies married to Ty's, Lennon like vocals, a lush tapestry of sonic delights fill ones ears. This album rivals "Gretchen" for me. There is no mistake that Ty must have been the central figure in conceiving King's X material in their early years. "ST" just rocks to no end, filled with songs that would have fit perfectly on "Gretchen!" As a matter of fact, "ST" on a whole rocks harder than "Gretchen," without losing it's exotic flavor of mixing Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Rush, & Pat Travers into a smoldering concoction of epic proportion that was so evident with "Gretchen!"

Jelly Jam "ST" is by far my favorite post 2000 album, & is essential to anyone interested in King's X or King's X influences. Your ears will be addicted! I know mine are!
