A>S>H>S review in All About Jazz

July 1st, 2006 · 1 Comment

I recently reviewed the A>S>H>S CD, Audible Stellar Hypnotic Situations, for All About Jazz.

Here’s a snippet:

At first listen, A>S>H>S could easily come off as a stereotypical jam band. But to dismiss the group as just another one of the crop of bands spawned by Medeski, Martin, and Wood would be a mistake. Where MMW and similar groups sometimes fail to maintain a steady concept throughout their albums, the Houston-based jazz ensemble A>S>H>S (pronounced “ashes”) takes experimentation and improvisation to another level.
