Dave Fiuczynski: Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam!

Read "Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam!" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Simultaneously dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and legendary rap and hip-hop producer J Dilla, Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam! is a musical adventurer's dream and a purist's nightmare. But anything more conventional from conceptualist, composer and guitarist David Fiuczynski would probably be disappointing--after all, he's the “Fuze" who lit the raging bonfire of the ...

During that period there's been a live release and a double-DVD set, ...
