"Ordovician Fission", the debut studio release from Adagio Blue will be released by Alpha Dawg Records on October 25th. Adagio Blue is a post- modern instrumental, melodic jazz-funk fusion band from Ohio; the brainchild and side project of guitarist/songwriter Jay Brunner (of Johnny B and the Gravediggers) and bassist/songwriter Chris Rhoton with Matt Hall (keyboards) and Mark Becknell (drums).All of the songs were recorded in a live band setting with no overdubs. Most songs were recorded in just one or two takes, which is a testament to the experience and talent these four members exude. They have more chops than a butcher shop! Comparable to the avant-garde jazz of Medeski, Martin & Wood, the retro funk of Lettuce and Soulive, with touches of prog-rock and blues, Adagio Blue blur the lines of classification."Second Of Six" starts out with a dueling guitar and bass race before giving way to a walking bass line and noodling guitar riff that should make every jam band envious."Laurentian Kid" is an organ drenched blues rock rave-up with funky slap bass and a stop/start rhythm. The title track, "Ordovician Fission" incorporates twinkling keys with a Primus-like guitar line into a dissonant distorted jazz freak out.
