Jelly Jam is on it way!

The Jelly Jam (2002)
SPV 085-41852 CD

The self titled debut release from The Jelly Jam will be released sometime in early 2002. Formed from the ashes of Platypus, the band consists of guitarist/vocalist Ty Tabor (King's X), bassist John Myung (Dream Theater) and drummer Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs). Experimental in places and yet still very song orientated, the album is an exciting blend of hard hitting grooves and unforgettable melodies!

"I just finished writing and recording basic tracks with Ty Tabor and John Myung at Millbrook Studios. We're calling this project 'Jelly Jam' and are hoping for a release around spring/summer 2001. This recording was an incredible amount of fun as the ideas came quickly and the laughs never stopped- nor did the wine and cigars."

Platypus (made up of Ty Tabor, John Myung, Rod Morgenstein, and Derek Sherinian) has separated into two separate recording entities. Ty, Rod, and John will record an album as a three piece. (They are currently doing so in New York until December 10th.) There is no word yet as to what this new version of the band will be called but it will no longer be Platypus.

Ty Tabor will also record a new record with Derek Sherinian in January 2001. It is rumored that Gregg and Matt Bissonette will be joining them for the recording if scheduling works out.

Ty is also close to finishing his next solo record. Also, King's X will be back in the studio in February.

There are no final release dates decided on all of the previously mentioned projects but all are slated to be released in 2001.
