Djam Karet
Reflections From The Firepool
The Story
Originally independently released in 1989 as Djam Karet's third CD release, "Reflections From The Firepool" documents the birth in studio of the instrumental rock world of Djam Karet. This was the point in time where the band discovered their musical voice, a time in any group's life where it all begins to come together. Like many moments in life, these times are experienced quickly and only gain importance as they mature in their own "Reflections From The Firepool". This release garnered favorable reviews in such national publications as Rolling Stone ("..inhabiting a unique sector where Floydian dreamscapes interesect with the jagged complexity of King Crimson and the improv-guitar happenstance of the Grateful Dead..." - their #2 Independent Album Of The Year), CD Review, Audion and Music Technology.
