Detroit-based Metaphysical Jones thrived in the early part of the new millennium with their brand of improvisational jazz-inspired jam rock. A staple in the Detroit live music scene from 2000-2003, the band performed stretched-out original epics, as well as a healthy dose of cover songs. The band was led by guitarists and vocalists David Gullo and Steve Roginson, while bassist Brett Dodson and drummer Michael Medvinsky rounded out the quartet. The band's high-energy live shows and psychedelic leanings featured harmonica, lap steel guitar, and a regular dose of festive vocal harmonies. Their self-titled debut disc was released in 2001. The album captured the band's frantic live shows. Kurtis "Catnip" Katzenmeyer recorded the album from various live performances. The group disbanded in early 2003.
