GET CRANKIN'!

Much to my surprise Woodenhead has been making music since 1975. It is literally impossible to keep up with all the bands that are coming out with music, so the fact that this is the first time I had ever heard of this band, came as no surprise. I do however feel a certain amount of frustration that I did not know about them because I really enjoyed their music.

Perseverance is a very interesting and contemplative gathering of instrumental tracks that offer a remarkable variety for the perceptive listener within each composition. I heard so many different things going on with this album. The first influence I detected was an authoritative Celtic sound in Jimmy Robinsonís guitar playing in different parts of several songs, and then elements of jazz and funk bubble up to the surface. Each track from beginning to end continually evolves and breaks off into different musical segments with varying degrees of jazz, rock, fusion and blues influences. Jam band fans will most definitely find a common ground with this music because of the eclectic and tasteful sounds.

This music is not absorbed with merely one listen, several is more realistic in order to grasp what this ultra talented band is trying to impress upon you. If you think the cover of this CD is rather odd and original, just wait until you hear their music, it just gets better as it gets further into the album. If you look up the term progressive, chances are you will find this band's name as part of the definition.
