“Octaveleven (EP) Ditch everything you think you hate about rock/jazz fusion and come sit next to Santa Fe outfit Octaveleven. The 11-year-old brainchild of keyboardist-songwriter Philip L Maddux, this trio, which also includes percussionist Ben Durfee (CassoVita, As in We) and bassist Paul Wagner, is poised to release its debut instrumental EP this summer. Crammed with über-mathy arrangements and Durfee’s signature double-kick madness, the four-song affair is short on individual riffs but tall on collaborative technical prowess. If you’ve ever lost yourself in a rhythm breakdown of a Rush song, you’ll lose your goddamn mind in this release. (RDW)”
