..."Sunrise Falling" by Gene Ess takes a different approach to the power guitar trio, filling every pixel of sound with electronic noise, samples, squelches and effects. The bassist for the majority of tracks is Matt Garrison (son of Coltrane bassist Jimmy). Ess occasionally turns off the synths for a bit of tasteful “poodle-poodle" style jazz, but he likes his analog synths and sound trickery, including a weird phasing effect on the title track that gets right inside your skull - a kind of mental floss. Other titles reflect Ess's Japanese heritage, grappling with the challenging tuning and pitch-following system of the traditional Roland guitar synth on Variant and playing tasteful, koto-like acoustic guitar on Triptych and Katana".
