Album Review

Sexmob – “Din of Inequity ” – [Columbia Records (Jazz)]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

Well, a guy plays around with “Spanish Fly” long
enough and sooner or later a Sexmob’s gonna break
out. Steven Bernstein has shed his Lounge Lizard
skin, and created this other project to flirt w/
Briggan Krauss’ sex-a-mo-phone. While there is
plenty of four-play, Wolleson/Scherr do provide
some locking bump and grind rhythm.(Wolleson!!!
“power-splashes” and at other points he even goes
dubmarining.) The excitement, though, is between
Krauss’ sexy saxy screams & Bernstein’s slippery
slide trumpet. They’ll ride together on a riff
awhile, then it’s off for a teasing call and
response of solo gyrations. There’s a lot of
sweat and energy, but the pace never rushes, a
funky writhing like…well sex, and with plenty
of goofiness and fun. Covers of James Bond
themes, Prince and a drunk hot-tub “Macarena”
A gorgeous orgiastic elastic score
