The Monthly Aspectarian - A
God bless Richard Bone . . . he continually
pushes the musical envelope and in the process we
all win. Richard shows a deeper and more mature
approach to his work and the constant ability to
reach into uncharted territory with his
compositions is rewarding. Coxa, in this case
referring to the hip joint or bone, is a
masterpiece. It's jazz, man, jazz. Listening is
like entering a smoke-filled sleaze bar with its
requisite gritty lounge music. This is why his
stuff fits our program so well. It follows our
slogan, "Unusual but Enjoyable." That it is . . .
an early and strong candidate for our list of Top
Twenty Albums of 1999. Check out our three
favorite tracks including the synthy, saxy "Playa
Six" and the lounge-y "Amorita Dive" which would
fit extremely well in a David Lynch soundtrack.
Where's Twin Peaks when we need it? And don't
overlook the tasty percussive flavored "Dragneta,
My Love" again with a desirable dose of synthy sax
and that despite the fact we usually avoid the
overdroned world of fuzak sax on our program. Coxa
is incredible. Go buy it now!
