Dennis Warren's Full Metal Revolutionary Jazz Ensemble: 7 In One

By Published: May 1, 1999
Let me take you out there to a place where energy meets sound. Where the electric Miles treads. Where freedom means a discipline to music, like a Sun Ra meltdown. Where groove has no titles and John Coltrane can play a solo for two hours and you remain riveted in your seat. Dennis Warren lives here. His Full Metal Revolutionary Jazz Ensemble walks the land where Ornette Coleman’s electric Prime Time and Ronald Shannon Jackson’s bands walked. His latest self-released recording is a nine track sampling of that energy with the longest track clocking in just short of eleven minutes. It’s a pity, this release should have been nine discs of extended jams. Each track aches to be stretched out and grooved upon. Geuss you will just have to catch FMRJE live. Contact: fmrje@gis.net.
