Picture sung poetry filtered through paisley sensibility (of the '60s London kind, not of the Minneapolis diaspora) and Blaxpolitation, aired out somewhere between Barry White, Gil Scott-Heron, Sly, Richie Havens, George Clinton, Donovan, and old-school rap, garnished with real-time, real-life samples from Stravinsky, Hendrix, the Temptations... whew! Is there a vibe-ologist in the house? Los Angeles poet-performance artist Adwin Brown joins with Rick Hahn's band to follow up his first CD, Portrait of a Groove, with his brand of party-time poetics, laden with allusions to jazz, African American poetics, Biblical rhetoric, and mac-man styling, all in service to the groove, of course. --John F. Szwed
There is nothing like it!
