Quartet led by US drummer Jim Black the blurs the boundaries between jazz and rock, composition and improvisation. Also featuring Chris Speed (tenor sax), Hilmar Jensson (electric guitar) and Skuli Sverrisson (electric bass).
"The composition is the key, but itís the live charge of the band as collective, marrying the edgy thrill of improv to the raw power of rock, that makes them such a solid proposition."
