John Mills Times Ten - Caffeine Dreams

John Mills Times Ten -][- Caffeine Dreams – [Fable Records, 2010]

Pretty great work from saxophonist John Mills – best known as a member of Texas 70s legends Starcrost, stepping out here in contemporary set that’s got all the charm of his older music! The set’s all instrumental, but it’s got a sharp-edged fusion groove that’s prime 70s funky fusion all the way through – especially the larger group variety, given the amount of tight horns grooving in the set along with guitar, bass, and drums!

Production is wonderful – very old school, and never smooth at all – and there’s a real focus on the instrumental energy of the ensemble – who play in a way that’s never too jamming or overindulgent to get in the way of the groove. Titles include “Flywheel”, “Later Than You Think”, “Cut To The Chase”, “Chasing Air”, “The Rain King”, and “Force Of Nature”. —Dusty Groove.com
