Originally released in 1965, EXPLOSIONS by the Bob James Trio is one of the first recordings to merge traditional jazz instrumentation with electronics. Pianist James is joined by bassist Barre Williams and percussionist Robert Pozar, with electronic effects courtesy of Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma. Improvisatory work from the trio is augmented by strange, seemingly random sounds for a fascinating, often humorous sonic journey meant to replicate the modern urban experience. This music is leagues removed from the smooth jazz James would go on to create.
