Zhongyu and Super Z Attack Team

These two bands are related both by the prominence of the letter Z and the compositions of Jon Davis. Zhongyu is a five-piece, primarily studio project, and Super Z Attack Team (SZAT) is a trio, a subset of the full band (along the lines of the legendary "small, highly mobile unit"). Who knows, there may be other configurations in the future...

Personnel:

  • Jon Davis — Most of the compositions, Chapman Stick, guzheng, keyboards, theremin, electronics, percussion, miscellaneous toys (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • James DeJoie — Baritone saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, bamboo flute, percussion, voice, electronics (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • Randy Doak — Drums, percussion (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • Dennis Rea — Acoustic and electric guitars (Zhongyu)
  • Alicia DeJoie — Electric violin (Zhongyu)

New Demos on Soundcloud

We've been working on documenting all the tunes in the Super Z repertoire, using our regular practice space as a studio. Generally, we'll do a few live takes until we get one we like, then Jon will take the basic tracks and do a few overdubs, equalization, and so on.

There's a playlist that happens to be about the normal length for a full album. Imagine that.
