Imagine Tony Williams, Bill Laswell, Pharoah Sanders, and Buckethead walk into a bar…

You don’t have to.

Apologies to Byard Lancaster, Graham Haynes, and Nicky Skopelitis. You guys apparently also walked into the same bar at the same time and the end result is one intense album, but I’m not familiar you guys.

This is oh my God intense instrumental music. Also Tony William’s last album before he died.

Ironically I was browsing around for Buckethead stuff and ran into this, Arcana, which also happened to be the name of the company I was working for at the time.

Spacey jazz rock with a little metal seasoning. So synthymetaljazzrockfusion? Not well known but well worth getting to know.
