Dang you, mr. landsberg...
R. Davis | louisville, ky | 03/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"thought i was gonbe original and reference this thang to some fela funk... but brotha landsberg done beat me to it!

daggonit... *sighs-to-self*

isaac hayes owns the best four track soul album with 'hot buttered soul' and now brotha byrd has the best three track funkjazz disc.
he opens this thang with some neo-nearly-psychodelica-jazz isht, 'the emperor' holds the body down and lets the mind out for fi'teen minutes plus some seconds... a definite trip (return tickets are now available!) and bobby and his horn does with 'jamie' what bob james and his keys did with 'angela/theme from taxi' - jus exploitin the helloutta his talents. it tracks in just under four minutes and i aint never wisht so hard for a song to continue/not like i wisht for this one to.
but then byrd rolls out into 'the little rasti' and thats where the fela-isms really appear. and given the title of the album, im left with visions of a buncha brothas in berbers and dashikis /wrapped in kente and cotton and burlap perhaps, with they instruments held weapon-like across shoulders, waitin for the dawn to come so they can sneak attack um, kenny g or somebody...

you know this has jus GOTTA be a pretty good cd solely because it done got my review word-count up! cause i been real lazy/cuttin to the chase with my reviews lately.

this is classic."
