13 collective improvisations

music created by improvising musicians

The musicians who create the music on IMAGINATION DOCTORS bring individual expertise on their instruments and in their craft to this collective project, called J.D. and the Sons of Rhythm.

Together they weave textures and trade blistering solos, threading together the groove as they go.

musical creation takes many forms

The first disc of this two volume set contains 10 pieces shorter than the typical J.D. cuts. These tracks were created by having Frank and Mike play with the drummers for the first pass, and then overdub various other sounds and parts to create layered textural vignettes. Each seems to naturally adopt a theme, aptly portrayed by the song titles.

Disc two contains the 46 minute cut sandwiched between two more typical J.D. improvisations. A.D.D., the long middle track, casts shades of style and color on a common thread, passed from player to player, and then combined in Ornette Coleman-like harmony. Deep Purple catches the group in a J.D. style rock review, having fun with leads and power chords amidst the spontaneous communication. Talking in Tounges finds Singer exploring a strange vocal-like guitar sound with Stefanelli and the rhythm section talking back.

IMAGINATION DOCTORS will tweak your imagination, and heal your ear. Get out from under the sameness of music, and pay a visit to the IMAGINATION DOCTORS.
