Side one includes the amazing "Martin's Funeral" — sampled famously by Tribe Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown And The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band Bill Cosby Presents Quest, and a Spiritualized Let It Come Down minute jam that's inspired by the funeral of Martin Luther King.
Side two features "Hybish Shybish", an even longer track that's sort of an improvised jazz game — and which features tripped-out instrumental trading that's simply amazing. The whole record is really mindblowing — a messed-up jam session that's well worth the legend that's been built up around it over the years — and we're hard-pressed to think of another album like it!
And as a special bonus, the package features these really long notes written by Bill Cosby himself — words that are as unusual as the music, and a side of him that's hardly been shown again. Thanks Timmy - You taught me something today. You're welcome. I knew there was more to the man than his stand-up, Jell-O and Cliff Huxtable. Or Alexander Scott. Here's some more of their stuff. The sound of this record reveals a Cosby who so many folks have only encountered as the guy who sold Jell-O Pudding Pops in commercials, as Dr.
Huxtable on TV, or for his early 21st century tirades against Black materialism and the gangster side of hip-hop culture; it reveals a persona few could ever imagine. Cos is a very complex man and always has been. These two tracks offer a slice of the Cosby mystique as a jazz composer who dug the entire tradition of the music and saw it as a means of expressing non-verbal emotions.
Cosby spends a good portion of his nearly 2,word liner essay talking about the death and funeral of Martin Luther King. The essay itself is worth the price of the album. Cos ' intent here is to reflect the actual funeral of the slain civil rights leader and all of the very complicated emotions that ran through those waves of people in the march -- in which he participated -- and in the crowd.
Musically, this piece begins with a slow, plodding bassline that morphs into something far more intense a little ways on. Studio bassist Bobby Hayes states, on his own website, that he was the bass player here, while Cosby 's Rhodes piano offers a four-chord vamp, and some slowly building percussion gets infiltrated with electric guitars, horns, a Hammond B-3, reverb, a second bassline, and another guitar, all building for 20 minutes from sad reverence and mournful marching into stomping rage, and finally, into release and acceptance.
When Big Black hits that bass drum, you can feel the tension begin Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown And The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band Bill Cosby Presents mount.
It signals a few choruses for the percussion sections to take over for a bit, then Hayes cranks into ""The Song of the Volga Boatmen"" for a little while on his bass, and the horns begin to slip into long, singing lines, and the guitars get funky and edgy; you can feel the tune want to just explode.
When it does, it's with a new vamp, turned inside out, and you can feel yourself want to march, shout, scream, pump your fist in Bo Hansson Attic Thoughts air, and feel the collective tension in the music wash over you. Yes, there is dissonance here, but it Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown And The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band Bill Cosby Presents all held together by the rhythms, and by Cosby 's notion that harmony can be stretched and broken, but it can also be repaired, reconfigured, and then transformed.
The bassline bubbles, Cos ' Rhodes begins its little vamp on the left hand and then begins to stretch itself into a solo; guitars whisper and curdle, and drums and percussion come from the background into the front of the mix. But when the harmonica gets into the mix rumors are that it's Lee Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown And The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band Bill Cosby Presents from Warthe entire jam is some long, hypnotic Eastern groove-meets- Herbie Hancock 's Mwandishi!
