Album Review

Bonefied – “Trombone Revenge ” – [Zerx]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   CD, Jazz

Tar pit swoon, dem bones, dem bones, dem trombones.
Five of ’em! Sure flutes flutter by at times (#5),
tuba tumbles and tabla traipses in too. But it’s
all about the slide, the smurt, the thamp, the meat
and gristle of the t-bone. Mostly free form save an
initial incantation, an Ellingtoon (#4) and a sort
of bump and grind doo-wop to close up shop recorded
in gymnasium-fi. Raga transplant on #5 was my fave.
Those sliding bumps/bursts are just lewd…whether
rising like an eyebrow, or slipping down like trousers.
Tar pits, taffy and trombones. -Thurston Hunger
