“Ron Bruner's Strange Jazz Universe NEW SPACE AGE MATERIALS. A fusion vet keeps the shredding in check…mostly. Ronald Bruner Sr. solos with such freedom and killer chops over the ending vamp of "Time Travel Made Easy" that you wish the track could go on forever. Thankfully, there are more delights in store within the funk and R&B styles of New Space Age Materials, with Bruner laying down some jazzy backbeats over the atmospheric keys and guitar of "Passion of Now" and a rock-steady 8th-note pulse that fits "Dealing With My Alien Feelings" like a glove. Whether it's hip drum programming on smooth vocal tunes or a couple of wild, reverb-drenched solo drum features, Bruner keeps his universe interesting, whipping out the pyrotechnics only when needed.
