This collaboration of percussion king Billy Martin and newcomer organist Wil Blades invites obvious comparison with Martin's main gig, Medeski, Martin, and Wood. Immediately apparent is that the same kind of unnatural synergy that holds together the aforementioned avant-garde power trio is present in this duet, too. Briefly, they experiment less and groove more. Martin's relaxed drumming drives the record forward, while Blades roots down (and gets it). Bass is, surprisingly, not missed here at all, with Blades brilliantly covering the low end on the B3's foot pedals. The only thing missing are contemporary jazz cliches: you won't find any changes for the sake of changes or weird time signatures just to be different. Every chord and every hit makes sense, and you can tell that they had a lot of fun recording. You'll certainly have a lot of fun listening. ~ Sam Taylor -- Amazon.com
