Percy Jones Ensemble – Propeller Music (CD)

Fretless electric bassist Percy Jones has carved out his place in fusion and progressive rock during his longstanding affiliation with the bands Brand X and Tunnels. Furthermore, Jones represents one of the early innovators of the electric bass and, since the mid-'70s, the artist's signature sound and style, along with his enviable chops, has been a treat for fans of progressive rock/jazz-fusion.

On Propeller Music, the bassist, along with funk/fusion/bebop drummer Mike Clark and others, help spearhead a studio session brimming with East Indian overtones, zestful rhythms, and EFX treatments. Here, Jones' pumping lines, harmonics, and somewhat angular attack serve as the guiding force, as his ensemble pursues a series of jagged themes interspersed with punchy rhythms and atmospheric synths. This 1990 release also features famed violinist Ravi Shankar, who, along with Jones, intertwines a series of Eastern modalities into the grand scheme of things, whereas Joe Sofia offers his pleasingly melodic vocals on two pieces. The band surges onward via a turbo-charged approach.
