Before he was a founding member of the "progressively ambitious" metal band, MEGADETH, Chris Poland with Robertino Pagliari, Gar Samuelson (also of MEGADETH) and Stu Samuelson made up a popular, L.A. area fusion outfit named The New Yorkers. Today, Chris and Robby along with drummer Kofi Baker, go by OHM, and have gone on to create some of today's most electrifying jazz-fusion. A power trio of epic talent, beginning with Chris Poland, who is among the most unrecognized, yet tremendously gifted fusion players ever to hit the scene. His style is both technically complex, yet free and passionate. Utilizing a vast array of rack-mount effects, that never cloud, but instead supply a tonal plate to a true artist, he is able to make precise sonic U-turns that make you wonder how it can only be one person playing. Supporting this intense string-master, is Robertino Pagliari on bass guitar. Robby's rounded tone and head-spinning six-string runs, are every bit on par with Chris, and balance out the compositional mastery OHM is known for. Keeping the beat has been the job of two gifted drummers, formerly David Eagle, and now Kofi Baker (Son of Ginger Baker of CREAM). While one could classify OHM as a jazz-fusion band in the tradition of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, WEATHER REPORT, and BRAND X, these comparisons do little to describe the unique work of this Los Angeles trio.
