Melvin Jackson- Funky Skull. Late sixties R&B/Jazz hybrid with the melody work being handled by Jackson playing an upright bass through an ancestral form of the envelope filter. He kinda sounds like the grown ups on peanuts, and I mean that in a good way. Appearances by Leo Smith, Roscoe Mitchel, and Lester Bowie. Elsewhere geblogkt.
Trio of Doom- Not a bad record at all, but given that it’s Tony fucking Williams, John fucking McLaughlin, and Jaco fuckingfuckmemotherfucker Pastorious, I have to wonder, is that really the best they could do?
