OUT TO LUNCH: Excuse Me While I Do the Boogaloo
Accurate, 2007

David Levy (clarinet & sax) leads a freewheeling band through a mash-up of classic funk, improvisational jazz, electronica and a bunch of other things. Hard to pin down, but it’s a fun ride. Every track different.

Tracks tend to bleed into each other, so watch those transitions!

All good. Fo’s Picks: 1, 4, 7, 8, 10, 12

1. 6:57 – burning funk groove w/James Brown-ish horn stings & hot solos
2. 4:28 – ambient electronic beat with flute & piano wafting through
3. 1:48 – steady midtempo beat, funky jazz horns trade off a cool phrase
4. 8:17 – mysterious dub with jazz, reggae, klezmer influences; good solos
5. 4:50 – fast percussion loop, lilting jazz lines, Caribbean touch
6. 1:20 – relaxed ballroom ballad, like a slow-dance at a wedding reception
7. 6:27 – solo organ intro; skittery midtempo funk, nice trumpet
8. 3:29 – sort of a melting trip-hop jazz thing with great trumpet, strange bass
9. 7:48 – lowdown bass, klezmer clarinet, slow beat: creeps, then wigs out
10. 7:27 – slow horns, then laid-back 70s cinematic funk-jazz, kind of trippy
11. 6:41 – second-line New Orleans jam with a bit of country soul in it
12. 2:52 – solo organ eulogy, then funeral horns + soulful vocalizing
