Grachan Moncur III-Some Other Stuff

Grachan Moncur III Some Other Stuff:

Experimental jazz, as haunting as it is daring. Wayne Shorter performs some amazing solos, as does Moncur. Overall an interesting listen, that is somewhat difficult to get into, but a rewarding listen once you get used to it.

The Shadow Ring-Life Review(1993-2003)

The Shadow Ring Life Review(1993-2003):

Confrontational buzzing and clanging topped with strange poetry read in a monotone voice. Listening to this disk is a process in and of itself. The music will probably give you a headache, but if you work your way through it the tenseness and pressure that this music builds up provides for a great cathartic release. The mood the music will put you in, will make the lyrics seem all the more strange and poignant. Amazing, but extremely difficult.
