J.D. AND THE SONS OF RHYTHM - IMAGINATION
DOCTORS will tweak your imagination, and heal your ear.
The first disc of this two volume set contains 10 short pieces, created by
having Frank and Mike play with the drummers for the first pass, and then
overdub various other sounds and parts to create layered textural vignettes.
Disc two contains a 46 minute cut sandwiched between two more typical J.D.
improvisations. The first, Deep Purple, catches the group in a J.D. style rock
review, having fun with leads and power chords amidst the spontaneous
communication. Talking in Tongues finds Singer exploring a strange vocal-like
guitar sound with Stefanelli and the rhythm section talking back. A.D.D., the
long middle track, casts shades of style and color on a common thread, passed
from player to player, and then combined in Ornette Coleman-like harmony.
The move toward the generic accelerates. Each town fills with the same stores,
enclosed in the same malls. Planned communities sprawl across acres. Radio
stations play the same songs in every city. Somehow, the world seems to shrink.
