This lays the scene so well. The listener will be right at home and also dumbfound. It's like some reality show of a home make over; It's really familiar but completely remade, awesome and JZZUZ GDYUM ASDFG.
Now this is why music is 'prolly' the best thing ever came out of human race. Something nice after all.
Favorite track: Paranoid.
Jazz Sabbath's 50-year-streak of misfortune ended in 2020 when their long-lost debut album was finally released; proving the songs made famous by a metal band from Birmingham were actually written by this jazz trio.
Now, reunited after 52 years, Jazz Sabbath entered the studio and finished their sophomore album, which was also being recorded in 1969, but due to legal disputes with a session player had to be abandoned and never saw the light of day... until now.
With the Birmingham band exposed, Milton Keanes and colleagues can now present these songs in their original form, replenished with 52 years of experience, vigor... and rage.
The tranquil 'Symptom Of The Universe', the full 8-minute version of 'Paranoid' (not that metal afterthought version everyone knows) and of course the song that other band so blatantly named themselves after.
The reunited trio will embark on their first EU/UK tour since 1969 in October; fittingly closing the tour in Birmingham on Nov 26th.

Since 2020, many news sources have stated Milton Keanes is actually the alter ego of long-time Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath keyboard player Adam Wakeman. Adam even has openly claimed in interviews that he made up the character.
When confronted with these claims Milton Keanes merely replied: “Plagiarism, identity theft... these things seem to be a constant in my life since 1970, so I tend not to pay much attention to them these days.”
Jazz Sabbath (1968) were at the forefront of the new English jazz movement. Their album would be released on 13 Feb 1970,
but founding member and pianist Milton Keanes was hospitalised with a massive heart attack.
When Milton was released from hospital in Sep 1970, he found out that a band from Birmingham had since released two albums containing so-called metal versions of his songs....more
I love this album because Brownout took strong source material and made it even better by emphasizing existing grooves and creating new depth through their funked-up arrangements. Truly solid musicianship! Matt Best
