Gregg Bendian's Interzone: Requiem for Jack Kirby

Todd S. Jenkins By

An impeccable tribute to an incomparable artist. Jack Kirby was one of the great comic-book creators, a dweller in places of long shadows and stark colors who fathered the Fantastic Four, Captain America, the X-Men and other legendary Marvel Comics. A musical tribute to a visual artist working in that medium might seem strange, but Interzone managed to pull off a coup. The music on Requiem is dead-on evocative of Kirby's grotesque otherworlds, and fascinating at that.

Track Listing: Gregg Bendian (vibraphone), Nels Cline (guitar), Joel Hamilton (bass), Alex Cline (drums)

Personnel: 1. Kirby's Fourth World, 2. New Gods, 3. The Mother Box, 4. Teaneck In The Marvel Age, 5. Primordial Ink, 6. Air Above Zenn-La, 7. Other Skylines

Year Released: 2002 | Record Label: Atavistic Worldwide | Style: Modern Jazz
