Kaizen Debut Album: First Impressions

Hamilton's top-notch instrumental band, Kaizen recently released their fabulous debut album: First Impressions. There's enough excitement on this album that they don't need no stinkin' vocals.

With Wayne Janus (guitar), Shane Lannigan (bass) and David Carrillo (drums) this power-trio lay out tons of grooves and get extremely funky throughout the recording.  Jazz, soul, rock, funk and more are thrown into the mixture and blended to perfection.

With the shortest song clocking in 8:08pm (and the longest at almost 20 minutes) the tunes are truly epic musical workouts.  Shifts in tempo and rhythm keep things interesting - you never know where a song is headed.  Surprises abound in this great collection!

This incredible instrumental experience can be downloaded through cdbaby or  iTunes.
