- Dr. Tree created the definitive kiwi jazz-fusion album with their self-titled debut in 1976 and still today nothing really comes close to it.
These guys were seasoned jazz session players and had incredible chops to deliver the goods. Drummer Frank Gibson Jr. and bass player Bob Jackson are the insanely tight and funky glue that hold the whole thing together and guitarist Martin Winch, trumpet player Kim Paterson and pianist Murray McNabb weave their respective magic all over it.
Beautifully produced by Alan Galbraith with tantalizing instrumental separation and trippy stereo panning for the headphone stoners, this is deep fusion to immerse yourself in for an electrifyingly funky fusion ride.
- Edited 4 years agoThis is the first record that comes to mind when you ask someone, ‘got any dope New Zealand shit?’ Although this was apparently the jazz release of the year in 1976, copies of this album rarely surface, even in its country of origin. Although it does contain the monster acid-jazz-funk bomb ‘Eugino D’, the whole album burns with the same energy and intensity right the way through. It’s a package deal of jazz-funk, jazz-rock and just generally good music. It’s a pity they didn’t do more albums(aussiefunk.blogspot.com).
