Boogie in the Breeze Blocks

Talibam!: Boogie in the Breeze Blocks (ESP)
Label: ESP    
Released in: USA    

"The Brooklyn duo Talibam!'s first ESP Disk' release, Boogie in the Breeze Rocks, is a narrative earful as warped and wonderful as spicy pasta, fresh grapes and caramel crunch. An ensemble record joining 2008's Thelonious Monk Jazz Institute winner, Jon Irabagon (tenor sax); Peter Evans of Sparks (trumpet); guitarists Chris Forsyth from Peeesseye, Anders Nilson and Chin Chin's Jeremy Wilms; along with Mostly Other People Do the Killing's Moppa Elliot on upright bass; all filtered through Talibam! To make music of one voice and cohesion. It is ensemble playing that goes beyond personal choice to capture a mood and the deep anthropology of the strange beauty of contemporary opposing and debt-maxed-out stimuli."-ESP
