From Jazz Weekly.com on FMRJE Horizon Event -

"Somewhere in the world, it's still 1969, and jazz musicians are creating protracted improvisations that reference the unknowns of outer space and the percussive tradition of ancient civilizations.
First constituted under the leadership of drummer Dennis Warren in the late 1980s, the FMRJE has grown and shifted personnel over the years... In concept and performance, the FMRJE's closest antecedent would seem to be Sun Ra's multi-faceted Arkestra, and similarly, over the years, it has released self-produced sessions.  
Warren, who studied with Black music theorists like trumpeter Bill Dixon and drummer Milford Graves, was around to experience the tail end of that Free Jazz psychedelic epoch. The FMRJE draws on those ideas to produce a gyrating, hypnotic sound, which as he says "demonstrates our ancient roots and our future communications, swirling through our biochemical spheres and igniting our souls for the hope of love in humanity."
 Although there are brief solos, no one member ever creates in isolation. So, for instance, if the guitarist explores some high-pitched, neo-acid-jazz fingering, he's shadowed by the bassist's constant rolling motion and Warren exercising all parts of his kit. 
Also, with what band members describe as a total commitment to the maximum possibility of sound, there's very little breathing room here. It's sort of taking both "Ascension" and "A Love Supreme" one step further at the same time. At times, in fact, you begin to feel as if you're hearing one of those legendary all-night blowouts in which half Energy jazz/half heavy metal pioneers like guitarist Sonny Sharrock, an avowed FMRJE icon, participated."
