:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jul 31, 2016

Dizrhythmia is the collective name adopted in the 1980s by Jakko Jakszyk (guitars,keyboards, vocals) Gavin Harrison (drums and percussion), Danny Thompson, (double bass) and Pandit Dinesh (percussion, vocals). The quartet released their first album in 1988.

An eclectic mixture effortlessly blending jazz, rock, pop and elements drawn from Indian music, Dizrhythmia Too highlights the first-class playing expected from musicians of this calibre and showcases the unique chemistry that happens when they work together.  Ex-Bruford keyboard legend, Dave Stewart also plays piano throughout the album.

The new album will be released on September 2nd but is available for pre-order over at Burning Shed.
