5.0 out of 5 stars Good album, 3 Oct. 2004
This review is from: The Electric Dr. M (Audio CD)
I read a review that said The Electric Dr. M was similar to Herbie Hancock's 1973 album Sextant. Another claimed it was similar to what Miles Davis was doing at that time. I don't think that is really the case. Sextant to me always sounded like the Forbidden Planet soundtrack mixed with some jazz and funk. Sextant is a great album, but it is of its era. The Mwandishi band was basically a jazz combo (i.e., trombone, sax, trumpet, drums, bass and keyboards/synthesisers) that played a sort of '70s avant-garde funk.
The Electric Dr. M seems to be clearly of its time, and to be honest as an old jazz fan I am not sure what to make of it. I am not sure it is jazz. The band plays keyboards, guitar, bass and drums. It is challenging, adventurous music and worth a listen. It has some similarities to what Medeski, Martin and Wood are doing but seems to have more substance.
