Mister Myth – Bamboo

BambooMister Myth Bamboo brings you a special variety of styles from smooth jazz, fusion, contemporary jazz, blues, and funk.  The opener titled Funky See Funky Do, offers just that, it’s funky and fun, receiving great reviews and features a sizzling guitar solo by Ricky Z.  Just A Reminder brings a beautiful smooth jazz performance on the soprano sax, full of colors reminding us of the celebration of life.

Last Exit came to him while driving home late one night, giving you the feeling of reflective lights and the contemplation of thoughts. This is one story everyone will want to hear. For What Goes Up (must come down) a straight-ahead Jazz style tune with a surprise rhythmic kick in the bridge, supports a beautiful performance by Harold Zinno on Flugelhorn and a wonderful accompaniment by Michael Cammarata on Piano.

The track titled Colors Of Seasons gives an ongoing commitment to development as an artist and composer, with a powerful tune that kicks up into high gear, delivering a energetic emotional tenor sax solo. Island Sands, let’s you dance on the sands of Jamaica, with this fun Caribbean song. You’ll hear a full arrangement of saxophones, trumpets, flutes, clarinets and even a recorder is added for color. Smoke Filled features Joel Peskin on a smooth sub-tone blues tune that has a sound out of the 1930’s. If you want to go back in time to pay tribute to the fathers of early jazz, this is the track.

Let It All Out is a funky, upbeat groove, a clap along with the piano and sax trading the melody, along with Grooved Pavement that has a fantastic ska beat that will get you out of your seat, Thrill Me rolls with a riveting tight horn arrangement with harmonies of old school 70’s style funk. Featuring Gil Melle’ playing (keyboards) one of the funkiest lines ever. This is one of Gil’s last performances, and when I look back on it….. We were just having too much fun.

To complete the CD, it journeys into a beautiful ballad on soprano sax with (co/writer) Rayford Gilliard on bass, called Reachin’ Out . It reaches out to you, it caresses you, with a very sweet emotional duet.

Bamboo is the funky alternative at CDBaby.
