NAHARIAMA - The second instrumental offering from Method Of Defiance, Bill Laswell's international music collective of interchangeable columns. The first release "Incunabula" featured guest artists - jazz legend, Herbie Hancock and Japan's master sound generator, DJ Krush. NAHARIAMA continues the thrust forward. This time with guests - cornetist, Graham Haynes (son of jazz icon, drummer, Roy Haynes), keyboardist, Robert Burger (John Zorn, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson), Senegalese master percussionist, Aiyb Dieng with DJ Krush returning.
Hard Drum 'n' Bass, Space-Dub, Mutant-Funk - courtesy of Bernie Worrell (Funkadelic), flashes of electric Miles Davis drift across Ambient soundscapes over a massive low-end assault below. Disorder with a meaningful coherence of detail and urgent resonance. Future music with a past and present, NAHARIAMA 4th Column… more to follow.

This is a great record of course Akira Sakata’s voice and sax is beautiful but what got me to spend so much hard earned is the absolutely amazing rhythm section!
Hamid, and Bill are awesome and Pete Cosey is superb. Best guitar sound I’ve heard in ages! Love your work guys! Alan Ramskill
Dudes, I was thinking during this album 'hmmm yes indeed I should purchase this' but when I got to the last three bonus tracks it went from a should-get to a must-have.
truly awesome work.
Thank you!! dustyswitch
