Broun Fellinis: Out Through the N Door

Creative groove music has come a long way and changed a lot since the mid-’90s. Which makes The Broun Fellinis’ Out Through the N Door that much more enjoyable. Horn player David “Black Edgar Kenyatta” Boyce, drummer Kevin “Boris Karnaz” Carnes and bassist Kirk “The Redeemer” Peterson, cook up an avant-leaning improv brew that eschews the electronically enhanced textures most often associated with modern groove music, while their Coltrane-influenced explorations go beyond the pale of the usual groove effort. Recorded live-in-studio in ’97, Out catches the band in full flow, with the group locking into rollicking 6/8 grooves (“On the Way Home”), exhibiting sensitive interplay (“Honey for Oshun”) and locking into a wicked hip-hop step (“Point of View”).
