The Arrow Of Time / Menagerie

Menagerie - The Arrow Of Time


Producer and multi-instrumentalist Lanu Ferguson has serenaded us with a myriad of projects ranging from The Bamboos to Black Feeling. His broad musical vision have made him a sort after musician and created high anticipation for his releases. Menagerie, his latest project is no exception. Ferguson's latest is inspired by the 1970's spiritual jazz era and is filled with post bop spiritual and Afro jazz rhythms. "Evolution", erupts with an enchanting piano solo and percussion followed by Fallon Williams philosophical words of wisdom. "The Arrow Of Time" is another winner fueled by simmering horns, tantalizing keys and a harmonious vocal chorus. "Spiral" is an infectious jazz funk gem with a monster groove. "The Arrow Of Time" is a marvelous collection of compositions that inspire joyous energy and warm vibes. Ferguson once again knocks it out of the park with an album that provides definite satisfaction.
