Mysteries Of The Revolution

Formed out of the rhythmic core of his famed Red Orchidstra (whose version of the theme from the seminal '71 Brit gangster movie Get Carter is acknowledged as a groove classic) BB DAVIS' MYSTERIES OF THE REVOLUTION is a collaboration between long-time musical associate French virtuoso keyboardist DAN BIRO and the much sought after UK bassist MARK SMITH.

BB DAVIS, whose largesse and unmistakable electric performances are legendary, has grown in stature from the underground and whilst MOTR's eponymous album, in part, evokes the spirit of 70's fusion “psychedelica electronica” such as Miles, Herbie H, Zawinul and Lifetime, it's also a journey of intense emotional, passionate instrumental playing by all three protagonists who firmly place their own individual, indelible stamp on the music.
