Sick of Wimpy Jazz? So are the members of CAB, and they're doing something about it. Think of this quintet as music's answer to the Justice League, each one endowed with superhero powers and sworn to bring excitement back to the bandstand.

CAB is the most incendiary collision of rock, jazz, passion, and blinding chops that you'll hear anywhere today -- but of course, with a lineup like this, who would expect anything less?

For CAB consists of guitar monster Tony MacAlpine, bass wizard and Return To Forever alumnus Bunny Brunel, ingenious organ master Brian Auger, and the force-of-nature, unstoppable rhythm dynamo Dennis Chambers on drums -- each a giant on his own terms. Together, they are unlike anything heard since the glory days of jazz-rock fusion. As Steve Vai said it "This is the best fusion band since Return To Forever."

But wait. Isn't "fusion" a dirty word? Not in CAB country: Their unique balance of rock and jazz talents assures that both idioms are well represented and blended into something entirely new.

CAB is, in fact, something like what jazz might have become had the torch not been dropped so soon after the fusion race had begun. That long-gone sense of limitless possibilities that once surrounded RTF, Weather Report, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra traced back to Miles Davis and his crossover experiments in the sixties. In its willingness to question stereotypes, redefine improvisation, and push virtuosity to new extremes, this music was akin to bebop; as the product of exploration by the best players of the day, it represented the best of jazz, period.

But then the winds shifted, and jazz became archival -- an exercise in animating the remains of what had been played generations ago. Or it melted into a simplification of once vital ideas. In either case, adventure receded into the freezer, to be replaced by something that goes down easy, leaving little aftertaste -- or, for that matter, any taste at all.

And if you remember when artists were interested less in echoing the past than in pointing the way toward the future, this is the band you've been waiting for.

See? We told you these guys are unpredictable. Catch this CAB and take a ride ...
