Groundtruther takes as source material music that would be considered “modern” in the same sense that electric Miles was “modern,” and gives it the funhouse-mirror treatment. While there are some familiar remnants, such as the loping funk of Charlie Hunter's basslines and the skittish swagger of Bobby Previte's kit, the overall vibe can sink into a gauzy layer of abstraction. Hey, I mean that in a good way. Just as it's funny that you appear to be four feet wide in that wiggly mirror, it's entertaining to hear John Medeski's oddball keyboard figures slowly devolve into signals from outer space.
