☳ Burgundy Blues ☳
Further extending the inspirational palette at its disposal, Breakestra exhibit a solid understanding of some jazzier directions in its all-encompassing definition of funk.
The strutting street funk of ‘Burgandy Blues‘ captures the early ’70s California Blue Note vibe in a flute-driven piece that could easily be mistaken for the work of Jeremy Steig, but rather highlights the talents of Breakestra reedman, James “The Penguin” King. Seriously funky groove with punchy horns, sleazy riffs & slick guitar licks that has the guitarist, bassist, and brass section marinating a groove.
Miles Tackett and his collaborators form an ambitious crew — and are obviously talented enough to continue pushing the boundaries of Breakestra’s potential.
RIYL: Quincy Jones, Lee Fields, Jeremy Steig, Hubert Laws
