Jazzedelics is the brainchild of singer/percussionist Tony Jones and guitarist Doug Perkins based on a simple premise: what if the seminal rock giants of the 60s had written their songs in a jazz framework?
To bring this idea to life, they needed the talents of Adam Çohen on electric and upright bass (Ray Charles, David Benoit, Ernie Watts, Phil Upchurch, Gregg Karukas, Eric Marienthal, Tim Weisberg), Chris Smith on keyboards (Jefferson Starship, Supremes) and David Anderson on drums (Larry Carlton, David Benoit, Stanley Clarke, Chaka Khan).
With music from Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals and others, Jazzedelics is a mash-up band that will excite audiences looking for something familiar but out of the ordinary.
A pretty good review of the Jazzedelics record on "All About Jazz" - I like it when reviewers talk about the feelings that the music creates rather than technical stuff, especially with really technical music http://www.allaboutjazz.com/jazzedelics-jazzedelics-rampart-records-review-by-james-nadal.php
