Piktor's Metamorphosis (jazz/fusion) at NJ Proghouse 16 October

Piktor's Metamorphosis began as a Jazz/Fusion/Prog concept group established in 2007 by bassist Brian Mooney along with remarkable keyboardist Marc Stasio. The idea was initially a tribute project to the great progressive Jazz/Symphonic Rock/Fusion music of David Sancious & Tone. The core trio was complete in 2008 when drummer Danny Pagan (Vernon Reid/Eddie Palmieri) joined Mooney and Stasio providing the dynamic propulsion this music demands. This amazingly creative music is challenging to cover - understandably a reason why many have not approached it.

In 2010 rather than maintaining a single tribute concept, the group has pushed its own envelope to include tributes to the music of Return to Forever, Chick Corea, Mahavishnu Orchestra, McCoy Tyner, Joe Farrell, Pat Metheny, Stanley Clarke, and many others. Originally a trio, the guitar was recently added to the ensemble (Monroe Quinn) thus opening up additional possibilities. The Jazz/Rock/Fusion era's experimental creativity and musical virtuosity has brought us all much enjoyment. Piktor's Metamorphosis now seeks to recreate some of the magic as well as make some of their own.

For the October 16th performance, tributes to the music of Return to Forever's: Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy & Romantic Warrior; David Sancious and Tone's: Forest of Feelings, Transformation, & True Stories; Chick Corea's: The Leprechaun; Mahavishnu Orchestra's Inner Worlds, and more…..
