Clifford Gilberto Rhythm Combination
Warning: self-deconstructing Jungle-Fusion instrumentalists ahead. Keep seat belt firmly fastened and windows rolled up. Make sure your vehicle is properly retro-fitted for 300 BPM-plus tempos. Ready? Let's begin. Witness Coltrane's Giant Steps being ruthlessly pureed in a Cuisinart and peppered with second-long vocal samples and excerpts from Swing-era performances. The drums furiously swing, stutter, skitter, and emit drill sounds as a multitude of keyboard voicings drop in from various directions and the trumpeter shrieks like the late, great Lester Bowie. Now witness the systematic dismantling of rhythm and blues into a barrage of hyperkinetic Drum 'n' Bass beats, mushy George Benson-on-speed guitar lines, and Jaco Pastorius-derived fretless bass thrums. Had enough? Well then, step into our luxurious chill chamber, where you'll be serenaded by an underwater orchestra playing Herb Alpert's greatest hits as you sip a cocktail and recover your senses.
