2005 Release on AbstractLogix from ace guitarist Jimmy Herring as he partners up with his long time friends Jeff Sipe (Apt Q258) on drums, Jason Crosby on keyboards and departed friend Ricky Keller on bass. One of the most surprising additions to this project is Blue Note Recording artist Greg Osby on alto sax. The band is Project Z and the music is beyond categorization.

Short Review
As a followup to its auspicious, self-titled debut from 2000, Project Z unleashes with wreckless abandon on a program of purely spontaneous music that is as daring as it is dazzling. Recorded live at Zac studios in Atlanta, Lincoln Memorial is audacious and strictly in-the-moment, full of virtuosic turns from all the participants in this musical free-for-all, with allusions to electric Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Allan Holdsworth and Col. Bruce Hampton along the way. Joining the core group of guitarist Jimmy Herring, bassist Ricky Keller and drummer Jeff Sipe in this adventurous, no-holds-barred outing are keyboardist Jason Crosby and acclaimed Blue Note recording artist and producer Greg Osby. The crescendos are orgasmic, the collective improv telepathic. Music this subversive never sounded so good. ~Bill Milkowski
