Jimi Tenor: Venera EP
Warp Records, WAP 109, 1998
Jimi Tenor bears his soul again on
the Venera E.P. The cosmic funk displayed in 'Door To
Paradise' should be a clear indication to prepare your
palette for a mystical journey into the acoustically
uncharted void. Trickling effects rain down over a strongly
arranged composition of off kilter funk.
The full effect of the Venera E.P.
drops when Jimi hits the sax on the phrenetic 'Tiger
Shark', Which is an exercise in fusion, with Jimi's
distinctive signature stylings.
Lush, complex and at times evasive
of definition, the Venera E.P. is a mysterious voyage
with Jimi at the helm.
