Metalwood - Chronicshadow

Chronic (2003)

The last album by the famed Canadian jazz group Metalwood. Recorded in 2000, Chronic is widely considered one of the band’s finest recordings.

For those people who discovered Metalwood with The Recline, Chronic is a chance to hear the band working more to their strengths. Arguably the strongest record of their career, Chronic will compel existing fans to broaden themselves musically, while at the same time attract new fans that are looking for intelligent fusion with a difference. – The Jazz Review

Metalwood - The Reclineshadow

The Recline (2001)

In 2000, Metalwood, one of the most successful electric jazz groups in North America at the time, signed with the major label Universal.

The first album released under the new record label was The Recline. It featured two guests (along with the original line-up of Chris Tarry, Ian Froman, Mike Murley, and Brad Turner): famed guitarist John Scofield, and Sting percussionist Mino Cinelu.

Grab your copy of the album, you won’t find it cheaper anywhere else online.

Metalwood 3 (2001)

1999 Juno Award Nominee (Canadian Grammy). Their third in the series of break-out albums, Metalwood 3 has become a classic. It is the album released just before the band signed a major label deal with Universal, so it maintains the group’s indie sound and adventurous exploration.

The jazz foursome known as Metalwood (who disbanded in 2003), were made up of saxophonist Mike Murley, bassist Chris Tarry, keyboardist/trumpeter Brad Turner, and drummer Ian Froman. The group formed in 1997, and released a self-titled debut album that same year; an album that was completed only days after the band performed together for the first time.

Metalwood Liveshadow

Metalwood Live (1999)

This live album, released by Metalwood in 1999, is nearly imposible to find.

When the group signed with Universal, all the albums (with the exception of this live album), were picked up for world-wide distribution.

It turns out that major labels are not interested in “live” albums due to the fact that they generally sell less than studio albums. So Metalwood live sold out of its production run and quickly disappeared from record stores around the world. But guess what? You can get it here. Grab it now!
