We’ve heard it all before…”Man, you have to hear this guy on guitar…he rips!” or (in deep southern drunken drawl accent) “Eddie Van Halen is the best guitar player EVER!” BLAH BLAH BLAH…
But seriously folks, I have not run across many guitar players that have the musical depth and ability that “The Fuze” has. Have you ever heard someone do Oriental Reggae? Well then you have to get KIF. Any of you who are already fans know who I’m talking about. David Fiusczynski has played with many great musicians such as John Medeski, Rufus Cappadocia, Gene Lake, Fima Ephron, Jojo Mayer, just to name a few.
This sentance from The Fuze’s website says it all:
“Fuze’s recordings are an experimental mix of tradition with modern sounds and rhythms, a melange of funk-rock jazz, ambient textural improvisations, world-music elements, metal, reggae, house, dub, drum&bass and other new grooves topped with Fuze’s unique writing, extraordinary soundscapes and passionate soloing.”
Not much on YouTube w/ David Fiuczynski but here is a serious look at some great musicians, a great song, and a great solo by The Fuze. ENJOY!
