Those genre blending, mind bending, spleen flensing masters of electric jazz/rock fusion return to bestow more cerebral convolutions. WALK THE PLANK is Brian Bucolo, Page Hundemer and Mark France, a trio of truculence upon the high seas of musical virtuosity. ¬†Over the boards of Bucolo’s beat, Hundemer’s bass and France’s guitar fly among the sheets and sails, beginning in the calm seas of something resembling a jazz standard. Suddenly, the skies turn dark and the tempest blows with a chaos that threatens to tear all apart as Hundemer and France fly into flights of metal fantasy. Without a visible cue, the sun breaks through and all three parts are once again in harmony and Bucolo brings all to a calm and happy harbor.

It’s a ride worth taking and even if my feeble attempt to make them into a scene from a Forester novel makes you cringe, don’t hold it against the band. They stand on their own. Listening to this music will improve your life and make you a better person.
