ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hot guitar leads, slamming electronic drum solos, funky bass-lines and jazz sensibilities...


The opening strains of Eye of the Pyramid will bring you into the groove of the title track of this third Cat's A Bear CD. Originally produced in 1989, the music on this disk is partly-sequenced, funk-based jazz. You begin your journey with Cat's A Bear's take on a conventional funk feel in Eye, followed by The Current Sea, a shuffle-like groove in 25:16 time. Bearskin Rug adds ten, and begins in 35:16 time, with solos in 9:4. All of this will leave you rhythmically ready to relax into Theme For Eric And Eric, where the melodies carry the intensity.

Showing they are not shy of conventional time, Cat's A Bear duo Joe Dorris and Frank Singer take you through Ceiling Street, with an extended solo by Singer on keyboard synthesiser. Double Felix gives drummer Dorris a chance to show you his electronic chops in a drum feature, contrasted by the ballad section of this tune with Singer's jazz-guitar sound.

Following this is the classic first recording of Bill's B.S., here titled William's Overture. This tune appears on Cat's A Bear's Tito: In Search of a Revolution disk, currently available on CD Baby. Closing off the set is Frank's Lament, also titled Frank's B.S., a partner to the previous tune. This tune moves you in an easy 7:4 funk feel, with intricate melodies and lush harmonies throughout.

Eye of the Pyramid gives you sixty minutes of classic electronic Cat's A Bear, a duo that actually played live for many years before Dorris and Singer paired up with Tony Stefanelli and Phil Papotnik, and, of course, TITO. This CD threads conventional aspects of contemporary music with Cat's A Bear's distinct approach to jazz, and will find you pushing play again, or adding Eye of the Pyramid to your favorite CD carriage.
