Since the early days of Primus to his most recent collaborations with the likes of Buckethead and Bernie Worrell, there does not seem to be anything that Les Claypool isn’t willing to try. Like a mad scientist in a laboratory gone haywire, Les has consistently pulled together some of the most talented musicians on the scene today for highly exploratory musical experiments. The results of these collaborations with other like-minded artists not only pushs the bar that much higher for improvisational music, but also helps to blur the distinction between different musical genres. This is no small feat in a label-conscious world but Les and his zany crew of merry musicians do this quite masterfully. Uncle Les is coming to dinner and everyone better be ready for it.
