Overview

As the title might indicate, this release represents an extension to his previous outing, Boom Bop. Known for his jazz-rock or jazz fusion electric guitar-based stylizations, Jean-Paul Bourelly's Jimi Hendrix influence cannot be understated, hence a notion that is most prominently conveyed on his impressive 1995 Tribute to Jimi CD. But here, the artist is heavily entrenched in super-charged funk, jazz, and worldbeat motifs. Bourelly augments a cornucopia of scathing licks with peppery, funk/jazz
ock-type grooves amid strong support from saxophonist/flutist Henry Threadgill, bassist Reggie Workman, and others. The guitarist dances, darts, and weaves in and out of a set brimming with punchy horn charts, extended note choruses, and climactically driven soloing. Abdourahmane Diop's vocals sit atop rumbling African rhythms on four tracks, while all-world drummers Will Calhoun and Dennis Chambers provide the booming undercurrents throughout. At times, Bourelly's modus operandi shows elements of Miles Davis' early-'70s electric years -- where the band utilizes space and heavy-handed beats to establish flourishing grooves. Nonetheless, this project signifies a thoroughly compelling direction for Bourelly.
