Kip Hanrahan - Exotica (CD)
Release Date: 04/07/09
Intoxicating brew of Afro-Cuban pulsings, funk grooves, and jazz passion with introspective and sensual crafted lyrics.
Jack Bruce tackles material as challenging and new for the 1990s as psychedelic bluesy rock was to the 1960s. The songs are dense, compact and rhythmically urgent ruminations on political meaning in a world where socialism has collapsed but freedom has not been forthcoming. Helping out in a brilliant manner is Don Pullen, the jazz pianist whose ability to be melodically sensitive while he furiously pounds the keys is rivaled only by McCoy Tyner and Cecil Taylor... Jack's voice here is a wonderfully melodic instrument.
