Personnel

Press

“..there's always some positive ferment going on in the band's new live two-disc set, ''If You Can't Dazzle Them With Your Brilliance Then Baffle Them With Your Blisluth'' (Trugroid). Mr. Tate is more obsessed with density, rhythm and science-fictiony sounds than his mentor, Butch Morris, is. With structures pulled out of the band as the music goes along, this album changes its personality in every track -- swing grooves with violin solos and ensemble riffs, Brazilian rhythm, funk, electronics, fuzzed-out guitar and free jazz.”
