Forget Your Preconceptions of Horn Rock
on April 20, 2010
I love this record. A strong rock album that encompasses multiple influences and stitches them together beautifully without being overly respectful of any one tradition. The nine instrumentals range from 21st-century New Orleans brass/hip-hop fills to soul jazz a la Grant Green and Jimmy Smith to straight up rock anthems, and the vocal tracks are just as varied, strong and catchy. Cohesive, flowing, with thought-through virtuoso playing and soloing throughout. 'Backatown' gets the party started...
