Jumbonics: super-baxophone Tru-Thoughts trucd081
What an unusual record! It’s a mainly instrumental album - which is always a hit with me – but beyond that any accurate classification is impossible. There’ a wide variety of flavours to be found here – jazz-funk (maybe like St Germain), some Jimmy Smith, a little sampled electronica, robotic dancing, some Czech cartoon music, a little Temptations backing vocal, etc, etc, etc. I wonder if it was intended to be a dance record. If it was – you’d have to be multiple-jointed to get your body to get into this groove!
Be that as it may, I really think this is a CD that connoisseurs of the off-beat will be pleased to possess. I know I am.
