Editorial Reviews

Jing Chi's 3rd album is their finest work to date as these three musician's musicians reach uncharted musical territories. Master drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, Bass phenom Jimmy Haslip and Guitar legend Robben Ford combine their musical genius for another blistering set fueled by unbelievable ensemble and solo instrumental sections and extended jams that push the outer limits of jazz/blues/fusion.

The third release of the blues/jazz/fusion supergroup Jing Chi is an amazing mixture of the afore mentioned music.
'3D' brings together again blues guitarist Robben Ford, bassist Jimmy Haslip of the Yellowjackets and Zappa drummer Vinnie Colaiuta. These three veteran musicians together is just a great musical combination.
Just like Jing Chi's previous releases; their self-titled debut album and their live album, these guys are always putting out an outstanding and distinctive sound.
You can tell that with each CD they release they sound better each time.
This disc in my opinion, is their best to date.
From the opening track 'Colonel Panic' to the final number 'Wires Tangled Up'this disc will blow you away.
There's also a guest vocal by blues great Robert Cray on 'It's Nobody's Fault But Mine'.
This disc has me looking forward for the next one. Check it out!

If you like any of these outstanding musicians, you will simply love this album! Well worth the money, and several listens. I bought this one after purchasing the first one, without sampling the audio at all. It is friggin' fantastic!
Give your ears a present!

The more I listen to this project the more I admire the musicianship that went into it. My favorite tracks are 2, 4 and 6 primarily because they are the main three that go off of the beaten path into multi-dimensional expression. There's a lot going on in them, but nothing that gets in the way of anything in them.

What I pick up from Track 2 is an overall exotic vibe - i.e. the Asian tone the opening strings set for the tune, the African feel that Jimmy delivers on bass, and Vinnie's choice of patterns and "voice work" toms and cymbals to enhance that air of mystery throughout. Track 4 is a 3/4 rock-infused fusion piece, largely due to Robben's work on guitar, with excellent delivery of
driving energy from all players. Track 6 is a 9-count jazz-fusion piece with a combination of sensibilities that Spyro Gyra and Weather Report would record. Its mysterious splashes and rhythmic grooves are bridged by a good dose of soulful syncopation.

I agree that this project is not for the average listener, but anyone with a sincere interest in fusion or oddballs like me who are instantly attracted to the unusual will like this one.

Truth be told, this is not an album for everyone. However, being a musician, it has been continuously pleasurable over many listenings. Robben and Vinnie are as good as they come. It's a fabulous recording audio-wise, but it might be tough to dance to...that's not what it's for..This group strikes me as a coming together of three fabulous musicians doing a project that is driven by their own tones and desires, and not commercial popularity. This is very evident by the skeletal nature of many of the tracks on both studio records, and extrapolation over those musical vehicles taken to extremely groovy places. Strongly recommended if you like to listen to great musicians having an obvious blast making strange, beautiful noise....

Personally, I liked their eponymous first cd better than this one. It was a bit more even, and sounded overall more spacey and inventive to me. Having said that, I also think that there are 4 or 5 songs on "3D" that are better than many of the songs on that first cd. Only problem here is, I really don't like the OTHER half of "3D" very much! (Are you confused yet, or is it just me? ;-)

When these guys hit it just right, as they do on "Colonel Panic", "Chi Town", "Hidden Treasure" and "Tangled Up", it's phenomenal! Their unique brand of fusion produces a really cool sound that you don't find anywhere else. And Colaiuta's phenomenal drumming is showcased a lot more on this cd.

On the negative side: Even though I love the bluesy tone of Ford's guitar, I'm just not a classic blues lover; so the lengthy "It's Nobody's Fault But Mine" brings that part of the cd right down for me (and that's partly the fault of BOTH of us I guess!). At other times, they seem to get a bit lost in their jamming. I also don't go for some of the near-metal sounds that creep in a couple times on some of the other tracks.

If these guys could have made just one cd that included most of "Jing Chi" and the best parts of "3D", it could have been a CLASSIC in its genre.

I value interesting music that is played and recorded well. This cd's rating was based on:
Music quality = 7.7/10; Performance = 8.5/10; Production = 8/10; CD length = 9/10.
Overall score weighted on my proprietary scale = 8.1 ("3-1/2 stars")
