Runtime: 65'20''

«Justin and Jeremy are both enthusiast musicians that play live jazz for a living. Justin is a percussionist and likes to fiddle with analog synths, and Jeremy plays saxophone.
Both musicians love free jazz and improvisation, so one night they got together, Justin on synth and Jeremy on sax, and they put 'Fluorinescence' onto tape.

This is a diamond in the rough. This is Acid Jazz for the 21st century.
Enjoy.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«When Pedro Leitão, proprietor of the great netlabel Test Tube, says of Justin Robert and Jeremy Powell’s Fluorinescence, “This is a diamond in the rough. This is Acid Jazz for the 21st century” he could just as well be saying this is fusion for the 21st century. What he’s getting at is that the mix of analog jazz and computer synthesis captured on their record holds unique promise. The standout track is arguably the album’s 10th one, in which a subdued saxophone is heard against and amid wisps of computerized miasma, and intermingling with warm beds of minimal keyboards. What’s fascinating about Robert and Powell’s brand of fusion is that they have chosen to embrace the very elements that have been widely seen as the source of the death of electric jazz — the chimes-like filigrees that all too often relegated the music into the background — and managed to introduce nuance where, once upon a time, there had been merely, at best, mood.»

«Hacia bastante tiempo que no comentábamos ningún lanzamiento de Test Tube, no hace falta decir que sigue siendo uno de nuestros netlabels favoritos y ya han superado las 200 referencias por lo que ya tocaba, y mas si lo que hay que comentar es esta joya o diamante en bruto. La improvisación, elemento fundamental del jazz, y la música experimental, comparten su carácter imprevisible , por lo cual ambos estilos suelen ir de la mano y están muy presentes dentro de la escena actual. Justin Roberts es un experimentado percusionista y Jeremy Powell toca el saxo; ambos se dedican a tocar jazz en vivo de manera profesional pero también gustan de la improvisación total y la experimentación. Una noche, ambos decidieron dejar constancia de sus "divagaciones" musicales y el resultado fue este; "Fluorinescence", 65 minutos donde podemos disfrutar de la maestría de Jeremy al saxo y de Justin con sintetizadores analógicos, ya que en este trabajo no toca la percusión. Un excelente álbum, de carácter ambiental y abstracto , con toques ácidos y psicodelicos, delicioso de escuchar. Muy recomendable.»
