Bam, Boa, Ed, Ruth and la Faune muck about with a jazz tune and I’m using the last two terms pretty loosely.
A fairly hypnotic (i.e. repetitive) and laid back groove in a jazz style with rhodes, double bass, drums, flute and synths.
some jazz-funk. The title has nothing to do with a river. There is a tenuous link to Nile Rodgers who is one of my favourite musicians and producers. Featuring alto and tenor saxophones played over a strong rhythm section of bass, drums, guitar and keys.
an orchestral piece featuring solo cello with the usual mish-mash of noises. A mix of darker, practically funereal moments with loud bits thrown in to wake you up. I’ve undoubtedly “quoted” (nicked) ideas from the composers I listen to but with any luck I’ve disguised them well.
a rather retro mix of funk, disco, Turkish makams and the usual nonsense featuring some stirling bass work by Boa Dubless and strong beats by Ed Thrums in this dare I say it, prog funk disco track.
hmmm this sounds suspiciously like jazz-fusion to me with some latin flavours thrown in. Bam, Art, Ed, Boa and Ruth messing about in the hall. Art was trying out his new slide too.
a funk soul jam featuring soul sisters Terrie Odabi, Ruth & Stephe on wails, and soul brothers Bam on rhodes, Art on guitar, Ed on drums & Boa on bass.
… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long and torturous and they haven’t even got there yet. Anyroad, they will eventually. This tune was written for a good friend who lives in Barga, Italy who plays in a soul band. Therein lies a problem, because this track is a jazz-funk hybrid with some scarily muzak-like nonsense thrown in. Featuring Hammond, bass, drums and guitar.
a slow funked up jazz tune by the Bam Boozle Quintet, a right BBQ of a jam with Bam on the piano, Boa Dubless on bass, Ed Thrums keeping the beat, Ruth Tempet on trumpet and Stephe Hooxan on the sax.
a slow 2-step track with dubstep, orchestral and industrial elements make for a strange and heavy piece full of glitches and ethereal noises.
