Album


Action Figure Party opens with Everybody Ready, setting the party atmosphere with a radio-friendly track that's still true to the jam-band idiom. Elements of jazz are introduced by way of Kurstin's Moog and electric piano work on Pong Baby, a freewheeling mix of rock and jazz. Flow, spotlights Kurstin's improvisational skills on acoustic piano that create a visual mood with pat but not overly familiar soloing. Track 2 off of great album by Action Figure Party.

The band cease read more. With Action Figure Party, Kurstin steps out of character to create what could be described as an interesting collision between the Beastie Boys' groovier work and Steely Dan's sophisticated mix of jazz and pop. Kurstin's percolating electric keyboard work kicks out catchy melody after catchy melody, and he also takes a vocal turn on a couple of tracks. Kurstin hasn't forgotten his friends, and here he's supported by a crew that reads more like the A-list at the Viper Room than a list of sidemen for a groovy jazz album Flea appears, as does Sean Lennon-on turntables n.

One of the musicians' names is Flea. Action Figure Party's sound is different, but refreshingly so. Some of their music has strong references to hip-hop sounds. there is a singer, and real lyrics, and some of those lyrics are spoken through a vocoder. Underneath that techno delivery there is some very strong piano-playing by keyboardist Greg Kurstin, and it's definitely jazzed. This man has spent a lot of time listening to Dave Brubeck and other strong players. He has obviously spent a lot of time working through classical music too
