Live set from Monkeyworks (On this session: Richie Arlington: guitar manipulations; Kevin Brown: bass; Jeff Eldridge: farfisa, accordion; Barry Leaman: electronic manipulations; Steve Meltzer: percussion, electronics; Steve Peckman: woodwinds; Ian Smit: guitar and soundscapes)
For a number of years Monkeyworks has been bending jazz improv in on its left ear. This New Jersey musical collective adds a dash of electronica to its sound, its seven-plus members swelling in a "Bitches Brew-style" swirl of sound. Monkeyworks recorded a set for Irene in WFMU's "Love Room" and the resulting controlled chaos was presented for your ears' delight, accompanied by commentary from the ensemble's lead guitarist Ian Smit.

Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/7/09 3:07pm Steve:

This layin low jazz is perfect for today's rain; we do not get it too often in southern Cal.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:09pm Hugh:

Hello Irene,
I missed 'Espers' this weekend:( . Living at the shore makes fit rough to get into the city, especially w/ the weather. Did you attend?
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:17pm mick:

is this fusion ??
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:18pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yeah, but it's 'cool' fusion.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:22pm Parq:

Aha, I thought that sounded like the Mahav. I don't didn't dig this orchestral stuff as much as the early quintet stuff, but it's all good.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:28pm that:

met a caroline this weekend. when media matches..
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:37pm Cecile:

thank you, Irene.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:56pm Parq:

A group called Sonus does a really haunting a capella version of this Radiohead song.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:57pm postmanpaul:

hi irene, steve, hugh, mick, ananonymousparty, parq, that and finally but not least, cecile! mmm, radiohead. you groovy gal irene!
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:57pm Ike:

Woah. Black Fortress of Opium is an apt name for that band if that song was any indication. Almost like a soundtrack to some version of the Kubla Khan poem.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:05pm Steve:

Yeouwch, Irene has gone off her rocker!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:05pm Steve P.:

Me gusta Afroskull!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:32pm coloring pad:

Math with flowers. Weirdos.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:36pm coloring pad:

I could've sworn that song was originally titled CF...
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:51pm Steve P.:

Awesome! Nice "station test" interspersed there!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:54pm coloring pad:

Thought that was part of the song.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:55pm Steve P.:

Irene is now an official member of Monkeyworks for mixing that in!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:57pm coloring pad:

++0+ . Buddies in Parlin NJ . 8:00 . January 16th
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:59pm coloring pad:

Will have to find a station emergency system box and add it to my rig along with the CD Data from the ++0+ session. Irene, you always find a way to make it better!
  Mon. 12/7/09 5:07pm coloring pad:

here's the flikr page she just mentioned...
  Mon. 12/7/09 5:16pm coloring pad:

Know what that session needed? Piano.
  Mon. 12/7/09 5:29pm Teeter:

This sounds familiar.
  Sun. 12/27/09 3:40pm Cathy:

I'm really starting to understand this. Scary for someone whose musical taste hangs out in the '40s and early '50s.
