Joshua Tree, California, 2010: BRANT BJORK has just started to record another solo record. About four days into the sessions, the desert rocker decided to abandon the eight songs he was working on, and told his long time friend and engineer, Tony Mason, to start rolling tape and Brant proceeded to play drums in his natural improv style. After multiple drum track performances were recorded, Brant started layering guitars, bass and percussion in the same spirit. Theformer Fu Manchu and Kyuss musician essentially decided to « jam » by himself and for the rest of his scheduled sessions.
When the recording session had come to an end, Brant put the eight unfinished tracks on the shelf as well as his « solo jam session » tracks. “I was much more content with the jam tracks, as it was a creative release that was needed at that time. I decided to call the collective tracks, Jacoozzi. At the time, it reminded me of the feeling of my first solo recording sessions for my first solo release, Jalamanta… Only more free.“ he says. At that time in 2010, Brant had no formal plans to release any of the music from those sessions, ‘Jacoozzi’ included. Almost a decade later, Heavy Psych Sounds Records is stoked to finally release this special trip of a Brant Bjork jam!
