MCM (Masi,Coven,Macaluso)

MCM (Masi,Coven,Macaluso) - Ritual Factory - 2004 - Lion Music

Alex Masi (guitar, loops; Dark Lord, Condition Red, Union Radio), Randy Coven (bass guitar; Steve Vai, TNT, Ark, Yngwie Malmsteen, Leslie West, Brian Setzer) and John Macaluso (drums; TNT, Yngwie Malmsteen, Riot, Ark, Holy Mother, Union Radio). - three musicians from different musical and geographical backgrounds who felt like trying expanding a horizon or two. After meeting playing a few hastily rehearsed gigs and clinics in Mexico, the trio got recorded an hour's worth of music that could do justice to what happened on those stages in Mexico City. The process that followed was more intuitive than rational - one idea from one of the three set off a chain reaction of ideas from the other two at different turns - and the whole operation was made even more "abstract" by the fact that the bass and drums were recorded 3000 miles away from where the guitars were going to be recorded and nobody really knew what to expect from what the others were doing. It was almost like playing on a "psychic" level. The result is Ritual Factory - 11 numbers that span from progressive rock to experimental jazz, from funk fusion to Indian rhythms and phrasing - with the addition of "Black Market", a Weather Report classic that MCM jammed on the stages of their first tour and was wildly received. © http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/mcm

Good progressive and often experimental jazz rock fusion. You’re never sure what to expect when listening to this album, but it’s very original with incredible musicianship from three hugely talented and very experienced musicians.
