DINOSAUR CONSTRUCTION UNIT

Dinosaur Construction Unit - From the Caves Vol. 1 (Live)
An incredible 74 minute long complete set of improvisation recorded in Miami. First improvisation is 46 minutes going all over the place from fusion to blues to ambient, etc... followed by a nicely eclectic take on the Miles Davis standard Nardis and a final 18 minute improvisation.
Excerpt - Live in Miami 11.16.01(aprox. 7 minutes) (MP3 compatible player).

Dinosaur Construction Unit - From the Caves Vol. 2
Two studio improvisations. First is a 23 minute riff-oriented jam which they ride for quite awhile with TRex soloing. Second, divided into two parts (23 minutes, 13 minutes), crescendoes to a minor keyed jam, blazing, eventually developing some exploratory passages before calming down to a dub-reggae groove and finishing softly.
Flatted Fifths For Dummies excerpts(aprox. 2 minutes) (MP3 compatible player).
Parking Lots, Baby... excerpts(aprox. 2 minutes) (MP3 compatible player).
...As Far As The Eye Can See excerpts(aprox. 2 minutes) (MP3 compatible player).

Dinosaur Construction Unit - From the Caves Vol. 3
Three studio improvisations. First is a 19 minute open free droning jam in A which hints at grooves before ebbing to openness again. Second improv is a 19 minute funk jam with a long searing solo by TRex and the third (23 minutes) is a sinuous and haunting minor dirgeful jam which at points goes waaaaay out, with bass and guitar fighting and intertwining.

Help Me Bootsy! Hazel's Got a Gun! excerpts(aprox. 2 minutes) (MP3 compatible player).

Dinosaur Construction Unit - From the Caves Vol. 4 - Tomorrowland
A 36 minute jam which starts open and free, developing grooves and moving back to openness. Ambience gives way to a downward chromatic jam and then a fusion jam and a final groove kicked in at the end in 7/8.
