Ted Mason - Deep in Your Jungle

The Road To Mecca is the first release on the Mi5 Recordings imprint label: Guitar Player Records (Guitar Player Magazine). It is a Brit Rock, World Music fusion album bejeweled with Arab percussion, sitars, classical strings, and a quite a bit of virtuoso Guitar from the Former Modern English Guitarist/co songwriter/manager, Ted Mason. Deep in Your Jungle distills the album’s fusion of style, play, and moral outrage of British and US contemporary colonialism. Henry Morton Stanley (portrayed in the song) represented the Man Who Would Be King, the less-than-English tribal son of the UK (Stanley was Welsh). Stanley reinvented himself as the “American Explorer,” a tried-and-true fiction based on the earlier variants of European “discoverers” of worlds that were, of course, already there, already “discovered,” and already “civilized.”
