Smoke Everything

From the atmospheric smooth lounge jazz that informed downtempo to Bitches Brew-esque freak outs to off-kilter 5/4 funk jams, Smoke's Everything is perhaps one of the most appropriately named records. Reminiscent of a Teo Macero or Can project (where larger studio improvisations are edited down to form songs), Smoke quickly jumps from one style and tempo to a seemingly unrelated other. Originally released in 1973 on MPS, this Californian psychedelic jazz outfit creates a far out sound with their driving yet fluent pulse and motif-based melodic improvisations.
