In the '70s, Weather Report forecasted the coming storm-after jazz studied its way into Standards Land, a melange of rock, jazz, funk and all other genres would rule the alternatively-minded instrumental world. One family of bands proves the point-the helter-skelter instru-odysseys of Critters Buggin', Tuatara and the newest offshoot, the Black Frames. All of these bands hinge on a hyper master of “saxophonics” named Skerik, the sort of saxophonist that people tend to build bands around. Each member of the Black Frames-Skerik, Mike Dillon (MC 900 Foot Jesus), Brad Houser (Edie Brickell) and Earl Haven (Seal, Joe Henry)-takes turns on percussion. The result is a funk-rock-jazz freakout of inspirational proportions.
