What do you get if you take the solid, old-school jazzy-funky-soul musicianship of a jazz organ trio; and mix it with new-school style and production approaches? One result would be a modern concept album, Sketches of a Neighborhood by The Bass Mint Bros. In the tradition of Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Herbie Hancock, and Booker T & The M.G.s comes an ambient musical journey, depicting a Saturday in the life of an underground musician; from “Awakened by a Noon Day Sun” to the Sunday morning sunrise of “Valley Park Groove.”
The Bass Mint Bros core membership consists of Yusef Bey on drums, percussion, keyboards, and electronic percussion; Barry Hughes on Bass (upright and electric) and guitar; and Mwalim on Hammond Organ, piano, and keyboards...
