A Blog Supreme/NPR Jazz
A Modern Jazz Music Video (And It's Not Lame, Either) : A Blog Supreme : NPR
Featuring a mid-winter mime in DUMBO, steampunk mad science, Maurice Brown's mini-me surrogate and potential floorcest rendered in a dream sequence. Oh, and the music -- "Time Tick Tock" from the Maurice Brown Effect -- is pretty hip too.
The tune is "Time Tick Tock," by the Maurice Brown Effect, off The Cycle Of Love. Brown plays trumpet; Derek Douget takes the tenor solo; Chris Rob, Solomon Dorsey, Joe Blaxx are the rhythm section: piano, bass, drums. Unlike this guy, I slept on this record when it came out earlier this year — my loss. It's one of those modern-R&B-influenced jazz discs which doesn't make you wish it just stuck to one genre or the other. They're great live, too...
