Marsalis, Branford / Buckshot Le Fonque / Maya Angelou - Buckshot Le Fonque Buckshot Le Fonque
Jazz Used - LP C2 57323 Columbia
Very Limited Pressing Run On This 1994 2LP Original. First Copy We Have Seen In Ten Years! Includes The Bonus Track Uptown Version Of "Breakfast At Denny's" Not On CD. "Lots Of Records Are Touted As Breakthroughs By The Hype Machines And Spin Masters, But This One Really Is — A Marvelously Playful And, Above All, Musical Fusion Of The Old Jazz Verities And Newer Currents Swirling Around The 1990s. "Buckshot Lefonque" Was A Pseudonym For Cannonball Adderley In The 1950s, And You'll Squint Long And Hard Trying To Find Branford's Name On The Jacket And Cover Except For The Tiny Note, "Produced By B. Marsalis." Maybe He Was Hedging His Bets Against The Expected (And Received) Flak From The Jazz Purists, But The Reality Is That He Has Found A Brilliant Way To Fuse Hip-Hop Rhythms With Mainstream Jazz Licks Without Compromising Either Idiom. The Best Number Is A Lovely Setting Of Maya Angelou's Poem "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings," With Absolutely Gorgeous Soprano By Marsalis, Some Great Miles-Tinged Muted Trumpet From Roy Hargrove, And Angelou Reciting Her Words Against The Big Electronic Backbeat. The Free-Thinking Branford Also Injects Real Funk Into Elton John's "Mona Lisas (And Mad Hatters)"; Throws In A Little Reggae, Rap, And Lots Of Sampling; Gets Down And Dirty With Kevin Eubanks' Slide Guitar On The Truckin' Cut "Some Cow Fonque"; And Unifies Most Of The Package With A Couple Of Recurring, Catchy Riffs And Touches Of Horseplay." Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details
