Not only is Uri Caine unabashedly dually influenced by jazz and classical music, but he has spent most of the last 30+ years making records that blur the musical boundaries between these two converging and diverging art forms. Whether reinterpreting Mahler, Mozart or The Goldberg Variations, playing Klezmer music with Mickey Katz, or playing jazz/hip-hop with Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson in The Philadelphia Experiment, the lack of missteps in a musical career as wide-ranging as his hints at musical brilliance. Of his more jazz-leaning records, Bedrock is the most experimental. He turns in his piano for a handful of keyboards, synthesizers and laptop effects, and dives into outrageous musical journeys with Tim Lefebvre and Zach Danziger, two Wayne Krantz-alumni who became major players in the experimental jazz scene in New York in the 1990s. Check out the Headhunters vibe throughout "Nymphomania." Like Hancock's electric music, Caine boldly walks the tightrope between solid, simple grooves and vigorous melodic output.
