Fundamental Forces + Iron Kim Style
Guitarist Rik Wright's group Fundamental Forces is a revolving consortium of players whose explorations center around a set number of loosely defined charts and guidelines. Stylistically, all preconceptions are out the door. Iron Kim Style is an explosive Seattle-based jazz-rock improvisational quintet who gleefully blend structure and abstraction, lyrical melodies and scalding noise, wicked funk and weightless balladry, jazz phrasing and bracing experimentalism.
