Tunnels: Natural Selection

Sounding like a cross between Garaj Mahal and Slang the jam-jazz band Tunnels lay down plenty of funky rhythms and stellar fills. Natural Selection is a bass laden CD that contains plenty of Midi soundscapes. All songs are extended jams, purely instrumental, ranging from six to eight minutes.

Percy Jones' Fretless runs on "Devil's Staircase" are very reminiscent of Karmakanic's "Hindby". "Green Eyes" has a modern jazz feel with serious keyboard lines. With only three members, Tunnels create a huge sound, that doesn't dominate, but does a good job of filling the ear. There is not any fill or substandard tracks here. This is a band that knows when to extend a theme and when to stop.

As far as overall quality, this is easily on par with last years phenomenal Los Locos by Slang. Natural Selection is a fully enjoyable listen that challenges the listener. If you are into fusion and jazz tinged rock, this CD will fit right into your collection.
