Artist: TriPod (www.tripod-theband.com)
Title: TriPod
Label: Moonjune Records (www.moonjune.com)
Genre: Rock/Progressive, Jazz, Fusion, Funk, Pop

Bizarre cover art eh? Well, I have seen weirder than this so I guess it is not very bad when considering some of the other images used in the realm of progressive rock and the like. The music is certainly different as well, and I do not mean that in a disparaging way by any means.

TriPod is very original and unique on their self-titled album. They have no problem struttin' their stuff. Their sounds encompass a broad based fusion and funk meets jazz with sprinkles of pop for a tad of sparkle and polish. They accomplish this by not using any guitars or keyboards; it really is quite amazing how full and varied their sound is. Considering they are not using the meat and potatoes that most progressive bands use to achieve the necessary atmosphere and sound that a listener has come to expect, it is even that much more awe inspiring. If you are a musician or just a music fan like me, you really need to hear this band.

A practiced combination of bass, drums and brass form their sound. I thought of Morphine more than once while listening to this band, which used the same configuration but was strictly alternative rock. This band covers quite a bit of ground on this album and they truly define the word progressive. If you are looking for something new and different and enjoy jazz-rock-fusion, check out TriPod.
