(Mar 14, 2013): Elephant9 – John Tinnick

From the 2010 album, Walk the Nile. This Norwegian trio is comprised of Nikolai Hængsle Eilertsen, Ståle Storløkken, and Torstein Lofthus.  The trio hold it together for this sophomore release and push away from the apparent influences of Tony Williams, Joe Zawinul, and Weather Report on their first album.  This homage to “John Tinnick” is the most fiery piece on the LP.  Storløkken, who is the leader of the band on keys, is in overdrive here.
