  • Credits

    While they are jazz musicians through ,and through, JFJO members Brian Haas (keyboards) and Reid Mathis (bass) openly acknowledge the influences of Boards of Canada, Panda Bear, and Brian Eno. Their ninth disc LIL TAE RIDES AGAIN, reflects that inspiration along with that of electric-era Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. The production layers pretty, shimmering, overlapping melodic fragments over constantly shifting rhythms evoking hushed drum 'n' bass, along with ominous, lurching beats. One of the few up-tempo pieces here is the dub-tinged "Discovering the Time Capsule," where sweet, nostalgic accordion sighs waft through thick, metallic-sounding piano chords. Dense and mysterious, LIL TAE is jazz-informed ambient music (jazambient?) that earns the listener's attention.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his disc is a psychedelic sound experience that highlights progressive ensemble playing....Structure and context is the name of the game..."
    JazzTimes (p.96) - "[T]here's a somber-but-not-somnolent spookhouse atmosphere to the psychedelic loops of 'Tether Ball Triumph' and the looming hoot of 'Carpool.'"
