Arcana - The Last Wave (1995)


Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Arcana - Arc of the Testimony (1997)

Anxiety-ridden, masterfully chaotic jazz fusion with elements of free jazz, performed by three music legends. A dissonant wall of guitar courtesy of Derek Bailey, Bill Laswell's thick, oft-distorted bass, and a punchy, hard-hitting drum sound that perfectly compliments the genius of the late, great Tony Williams, with production assistance from one Mr. John Zorn.

Track listing:
1. Broken Circle
2. Cold Blast
3. The Rattle of Bones
4. Pearls and Transformation
5. Tears of Astral Rain
6. Transplant Wasteland

Calling out the blue light
