Toronto electric bassist rich brown formed rinsethealgorithm in 2004 with the purpose of taking a modern approach to the idea that Jazz was the original dance music. The music, while rooted in the Jazz tradition, is also heavily influenced by the Jazz-Rock and Jazz-Funk groups of the 70s, 80s, and 90s (i.e. Weather Report, Miles Davis, Steve Coleman) but the main objective of rinsethealgorithm is to combine these older and newer traditions with elements of modern forms of dance music. The result of this amalgamation of musical ideas is a fresh new sound that combines sophisticated harmonic and melodic concepts with a heavily groove oriented rhythmic base.
