Guitarist Jimmy Herring, best known for his work with the Allman Brothers Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit, the Dead and Phil Lesh leads an all-star band to new heights of improvisational glory. Fusing elements of progressive instrumental rock and jazz and JamBand abandon, Project Z's new album, entitled "Lincoln Memorial" is one of the finest electric jazz rock albums of all time. Blue Note recording artist Greg Osby, kinetic bassist Ricky Keller, keyboard whiz Jason Crosby (Robert Walter) and hyperactive drummer Jeff Sipe (Phil Lesh, Susan Tedeschi) turn the music inside out. Be prepared to meet a high power. As reviewer Bill Milkowski writes, "There's humor and humanity in this music, coupled with dazzling virtuosity and a willingness on the part of all the participants to leap off the cliff collectively. As for what to call it? Don't ask. That would require a many-hyphenated term that touches on all the bases they cover here; something like avant-Dixieland-neo-M-Base-harmolodic-post-bop-funk-thrash-noise-fusion. Or better yet, refer to it by just a single letter - Z music."
