King Llama’s new album, RETURN TO OX (on the TTrain Music label is a journey of instrumental compositions with stunningly-weaved elements of rock, jazz, funk, fusion, and hip-hop. With melodic sensibilities and ear-catching chops, favorite compositions include the precisely spry “Sensei,” the explosive bass-driven “Cap’n Mustard Hair,” the rebellious and emotive changes in “Smoking in Ergenzingen” and the introspective jazz journey “Blobo.”
Based in Los Angeles, the progressive rock trio, King Llama features guitarist Ryan Tanner Bailey, drummer Luis Briones, and bass/baritone guitarist Nico Staub. Ryan, Luis and Nico are all originally self taught, and then they all had extensive training (both privately, and at professional institutions), most recently at Musician's Institute in Los Angeles, and in Nico's case, CAEMSA in Buenos Aires. King Llama’s vibe, being quite original itself, seems to bring out moments reminiscent of King Crimson, Phish, Yes, and Rush.
RETURN TO OX was produced by King Llama and GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Dave Schiffman (Mars Volta, System of a Down, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, nine inch nails…)
Also performing are area favorites Sketch Orchestra at 8 PM and Sea Monkey See at 8:45 PM.
