“Naked Movies” by The Coalition is Re-Re-Released on Hudson City RecordsNew CD pressing and digital release of 2004 recording by NYC superband The Coalition -- featuring Scott Healy, Glenn Alexander, Shawn Pelton and Michael Merritt.
The third time is a charm for this dynamic synthesis of organic grooves, improvisation, wild sonic soundscapes and innovative use of modern electronics and recording techniques. Naked Movies crosses the traditional boundaries of roots/groove music, hip hop, rock and free jazz.
…twisted tones, tweaked tracks and spiky jams, it may recall the most outre jam band experiments of Medeski, Martin & Wood while also alluding to the kind of collective improvisational groupthink that defined the earliest edition of Weather Report. —
The musicianship is astounding. -Keyboard Magazine
Naked Movies was originally released on the MidLantic label in 2005, then repressed and distributed by Fractal Entertainment–and now through an arrangement with Fractal, their new pressing is now available for purchase on this site, or for download on iTunes.
