The days of Bill Laswell’s unfettered CD output is one of the things I’ll miss most about the decline of the music industry. Creative obsessives with access to label manufacturing to release whatever their passions dictated is what will make the 90s the “good old days” for us aging music hounds. Fortunately… the music still survives, and this disc, “conceived and constructed” by Parliament/Funkadelic drummer Jerome “Big Foot” Brailey, is just another example of music you’d be hard pressed to imagine being released on disc these days. I don’t recognize a lot of the side players here, so I’m assuming they’re mostly part of Mutiny’s mid-90s touring outfit, while only a few of Laswell’s regular crew make cameo appearances (DXT, Nicky Skopelitis, Bernie Worrell). The music ranges from subdued guitar-driven funk to soulful asides, all anchored by Brailey’s funk/beat prowess. I wouldn’t call this disc essential, but it’s another great example of what Laswell was able to get into the marketplace via his Black Arc label… and his Rolodex of essential names, of which “Big Foot” often was. I had the pleasure of meeting the man around the time this CD was released, and his signature drumstick boasts one of the very few autographs I’ve ever collected over the years.
