BILL COSBY - Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band

bill%20cosby-badfoot%20brown.jpgHeady, jammy jazz-funk not unlike what Miles Davis concocted one year earlier with Bitches Brew (as much admitted by Cosby himself in the enjoyably digressive liners), the reverberating parade drum left to boom by itself at key passages of "Martin's Funeral" is the one instrument here evoking the players' alias (only Bill's named outright, but perhaps counting The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band among them?), augmented by timbales and trap kit. Guitars dryly scratch akin to what McLaughlin and Sharrock were dishing out at the time, as dual basslines weave around a four-chord electric piano vamp, sampled in '93 by A Tribe Called Quest for "We Can Get Down".
