Bam, Boa, Ed, Ruth and la Faune muck about with a jazz tune and I’m using the last two terms pretty loosely.

a mumblin’ an’ a bumblin’

a mumblin' an' a bumblin'     

A fairly hypnotic (i.e. repetitive) and laid back groove in a jazz style with rhodes, double bass, drums, flute and synths.

didn’t anybody tell you?

didn't anybody tell you     

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.

you know when

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.

sulla strada per Barga

sulla strada per Barga     

… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long andĀ torturousĀ 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.

the road to Finn’s Acre

the road to Finn's Acre     

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 little jazz jam with new horn swoggler Stephe Hooxan on tenor saxophone with Bam on piano, Ed on drums and Boa on bass.

a funking jam featuring Terrie from Tonehammer on vocals joining Bam Boozle & the horn swogglers plus friends with hammond, bass, guitar, clavinet, drums, moog and a sax section.

sizzle     

imagine if you will, a sextet with piano, double bass, drums, trumpet, vibes and synths playing this jazz tune plus the usual nonsense (an element of the circus maybe??) in a small club near you.
