The Pneumatic Transit - Lioness

     I don't know if I'm going to make it a regular feature, but for tonight I'm making the executive decision to have today be a Fusion Friday. Get your jazziest outfit on and then buckle up, because this one's a doozy.

     Regular readers will remember my affection for Exotic Animal Petting Zoo and their unorthodox brand of diversely-influenced post-hardcore. Apparently one of those influences is -- or was -- whacked-out jazz fusion, courtesy of former EAPZ guitarist Jeff Zampillo and his new outfit The Pneumatic Transit. The latest from Pneumatic Transit, Concerto for Double Moon, is a mesmerizing example of modern progressive jazz fusion, with horns and strings and everything in between.

     As is so often the case, I think this is an album best enjoyed all in one go. But if you really want to sample things before you commit, have a listen to "Lioness" for an encapsulation of all that is most delicious about The Pneumatic Transit and Concerto for Double Moon.
