NY percussionist Billy Fox in a septet playing compositions influenced by music from South Asia, The Middle East and Africa, filtered into compelling compositions for jazz ensemble.

Fox, Billy Blackbirds and Bullets

Fox, Billy Blackbirds and Bullets: Dulces (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"If Billy Fox's previous releases had the classical format of the suite, this new album is presented, simply, as a collection of sweets ("Dulces"). Again, the percussionist adopts the role of composer and director. Although only one track is an arrangement of a piece by India's Rabindranath Tagore, his influence is felt everywhere. The creator of Rabindra Sangeet, the name given to Tagore's patrimony of 2000 songs, is quoted in the booklet: "I am proud of my humanity when I can acknowledge the poets and artists of other countries as my own." This message is conveyed by the music inside: In "Dulces" we can detect idiomatic elements of South Asian, Middle Eastern and African musics, through the filter of a jazz ensemble. This is "jazz for the heart and hips," says Fox. In "Dulces," familiar situations are mixed with surprising developments, and the music is simultaneously accessible and defiant."-Clean Feed Records
