Members of Lesser Planets list Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Robin Trower and Miles Davis as influences. True to those music gods, the group specializes in mind-bending, instrumental post-rock fusion that promises to break time and spread good vibes. Featuring Derek Rolando on drums, Richie Townsend on guitar and Ian Erickson on bass, the trio combines tight composition with distant ambient music and wild, free-form jamming to create an always fresh and energetic set. Lesser Planets released the nine-track Live at Beaners Central album in 2017. Robert Fripp would be proud.
