Lester Bowie Brass Fantasy - The Odyssey Of Funk & Popular Music Vol.1 mp3 flac
Complete your Lester Bowie Brass Fantasy collection.
Boisterous Confident Earnest Freewheeling Humorous Playful Provocative Sophisticated Uncompromising. Songbook albums were considered cool and trendy in the late '90s, and that seemed to fit into Lester Bowie's pop-tune agenda with the Brass Fantasy. But he wouldn't be bound to the usual worshipful homages on bended knee to a single composer, directing his Brass Fantasy (brass ensemble plus drums/percussion) toward a mind-boggling assortment of sources that are often thoroughly contemporary. Hence a record that pits Cole Porter back-to-back with Marilyn Manson, Andrew Lloyd Webber with the Spice Girls, or how about Notorious . with Giacomo Puccini !

With a varied program, the disc is a little uneven, but it's an overall winner. Bowie's musical exploits were gutsy for a number of reasons, and it makes this album, among his others, a pleasure. Despite some great moments on this album (including a beautiful "Two Becomes One"), it ultimately does not reach the mastery it should. Part of this is simply overreach - Nessun Dorma, the superb aria from Puccini's Turandot, is shown to be beyond the reach of Bowie's arranging skills. I'm inclined to think it's beyond the reach of any jazz arranger's skills, so I give Bowie props for trying.
Bowie's Brass Fantasy is at the ensemble's best when they swagger irreverently through "The Birth of the Blues" or a doo wop "In the Still of the Night" - and the Manson track, "Beautiful People," is savage, even raucous fun. Other songs are taken quite seriously; the Spice Girls' "Two Become One" becomes a sophisticated ballad chart.
