Gardens of Gizsh

by Doug Perkins

"Psychedelic BeBop" is my term to describe the best elements that both jazz and rock share in a long singing powerful tone and the excitement of melodic and rhythmic improvisation. Think Jimi Hendrix meeting John Coltrane and you have the idea!

Album Notes
This is a collection of songs that hopefully show what are the things that I love the most from both jazz and rock, from lyrical melodies to screaming frenzied solos to odd meter and re-harmonization to soft introspection. The guitar palette goes from just a little dirty post bop to a full throated roar, and back down to the quiet beauty of a nylon string. Fans of John Scofield. Pat Metheny, Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, and Jimi Hendrix should all find something they'll love here.

My Review
Definitely delicious, diverse, dense, diversionary, deliberate, delightful, deranged, and deep. Eclectic, electric, epiphanous, elegant, effervescent, and somewhat elliptical. Really enjoy this thing, no two tunes the same. HAVE to dig Manic Depression, I say, HAVE to. Good job, Doug.

Michael Wilson

Great Album
"Psychedelic Bebop" might be a good way to catagorize this music - It really will apply for "Do The Funky Whatever" which is my favorite tune. But you get more here from rock to mellow with great compositions. The playing is first class on every cut. This is a far cry from the cookie cutter mellow jazz that everyone seems to be putting out now. More Doug!
