Its hard to know what to expect from a Dusan Jevtovic album, his music has veered from heavy noisy post rock to more fleet-fingered jazz fusion, depending on which album you are listening to. On his new live opus, “Live at Home”, Dusan brings all his different influences together and presents his strongest and most coherent musical statement yet. He is joined again by keyboardist Vasil Hadzimanov, who trades in the ivories on the last album for a funky Fender Rhodes which meshes better with Jevtovic’s distorted guitar sound. The rhythm section of bassist Pera Krstajic and drummer Pedja Milutinovic are first timers in the Dusan army, but they prove themselves up for the variety of fusion to rock rhythms. Vasil is also given more solo space this time around as he and Dusan share equally, and sometimes play duo solos.

“No Answer” from the previous album of the same name opens things and right off the bat you can hear this live version both rocks and swings better than the original, it really sounds like Jevtovik and his band are hitting their mark. The rest of the album doesn’t let up as there is plenty of free fusion with intense solos from both Dusan and Vasil, plus some rockin numbers too. Of the rockers, “Babe” sounds like an outtake from a mid-70s King Crimson album, and “New Pop” sounds like one of those good times 70s Jeff Beck numbers. Most of the rest of the album deals with freer jazz-fusion rhythms and solos, often with a Middle-Eastern or East-European influence. There is a short vocal love song that is kind of a surprise and no one is credited with vocals on the liner notes either.

This is Dusan Jevtovic’s best album yet. There are plenty of excellent jazz fusion solos backed by a very elastic and interesting rhythm section, plus there is also Dusan’s dark heavy psychedelic sounds too. Looks like he has found a way to balance his different interests.

As is implied by the title, this live album was recorded at the Decije Pozorište in Dušan’s home city of Kragujevac in Serbia. While the rhythm section of Pera Krstajić (bass) and Pedja Milutinović (drums) keep everything nice and tight, it is the interplay between guitarist Dušan and keyboard player Vasil Hadžimanov which really set this album alight. Each of them are content to sit back and let the other take the spotlight, or to provide harmonies or full interplay as the need arises. The result is nothing short of colossal, as while fusion is at the very heart of what they are performing, it moves into many different territories including progressive, RIO, avant garde, post rock and so many others. Self-produced, a decision has been made to only have audience noise between the songs, keeping the music front and centre with no distractions and the sound that has been captured is quite superb.

Dušan creates many different moods and styles and can be dark and heavy, while Vasil uses much lighter piano and keyboard sounds to create a magical counterpoint so that the heavier music sounds even darker, with the lightness being refreshing and invigorating. This is music to get lost inside, something that really demands the use of headphones so that there are no external distractions. It is not easy music to listen to, but is intensely rewarding throughout, organic and real, a breathing living beast that isn’t going to be tamed and is always at the boundaries of what is acceptable, and never what is expected. So very good, in so many different ways, this is well worth exploring
