1983's Odyssey, with drummer Warren Benbow and violinist Charles Burnham, was described as "avant-gutbucket," leading writer Bill Milkowski to describe the music as "conjuring images of Skip James and Albert Ayler jamming on the Mississippi Delta."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Blood_Ulmer#With_Odyssey_the_Band
