Album Notes
The biological rhythm of day and night is called the circadian rhythm. The Circadian Rhythm Kings is a band which has not stolen its name : they bring highly rhythmic free bop, free funk, free jazz or whatever you name it, alternately, but which immediately appeal to you biological system, and at times it's hard to keep from dancing along. The band consists of Andrew Hickman on tenor sax and percussion, Mike Carey on alto sax and flute, Jerry Sabatini on trumpet, Todd Brunel on clarinet, bass clarinet and Bulgarian double flute, John Funkhouser on double bass and piano and Gary Fieldman on drums. The music has bluesy and sometimes even middle-eastern influences, but the band is at its best when they funk like hell, on which the front-line of the three reeds creates lots of variation and intertwining melodies and counterpoint, while bass and drums create a beat seldom heard in such an otherwise free environment. Fans of Exploding Customer and The Fully Celebrated Orchestra will surely enjoy this one too.

Thirty seconds into track one and it’s already painfully clear that Circadian Rhythm Kings are shaping some of the most exciting, exhilarating, and daunting jazz I’ve ever heard. What stands out most is the dazzling cacophony of wind instruments that weave their way through the record: The dulcet croon of clarinet, the spit-fire fury of trumpet and sax, the airy trills of the flute, and the booming braggadocio of the bari, all resounding en masse. Of course, I don’t want to sell the rhythm section short. It’s the warm fluid smears of upright bass and stream-of-conscious percussion work that allow the compositions to free-flow their way from nebulous piano-filled fogs to Latin-tinged poly-rhythmic grooves and back again with such subliminal ease. Sure, those clarinet lines may sound as smooth as nocturnal emissions and the surreal contour of the compositions may flow like you thought only dreams could, but don’t let their name fool ya—this isn’t the type of jazz that will put you to sleep.
