Album Review

Ellis, Lisle – “Sucker Punch Requiem ” – [Henceforth]

Cousin Mary   1/11/2009   CD, Jazz

When Ellis was in New York during the 1970???s, he was influenced by the graffiti art of Jean-Michel Basquiat who sometimes signed his work SAMO (same old (shit)). Track 14???s title notes the place and date of Basquiat???s death.

Ellis???s bass and compositions along with a number of other fine jazz musicians lead to a variety of sounds. Tracks 1 and 15 are especially unsettling; others are pleasant straight-ahead jazz.

Extra treat – some excellent female jazz players here!
