Voice - Review
by Dan Liss
The title of the album, Coxa refers to hipbone or hip joint, and this play on words gives you the tip-off that the whole album will be a trip back into that era when people used terms like hip to refer to jazz. The grooves Bone and his band put into motion are smooth, bluesy confections which use keyboard, bass, congas and drums to evoke the essence of a laid back, smoky club where the musicians jam into the wee hours, with rhythms that lend themselves to dancing, just kicking back and listening, or to soft spoken, seductive conversations that will lead somewhere else later. The notes on the jacket don't say if there is a trumpeter or sax in the band or if it's a synth. Either way, the feel and the mood are there. Fun to listen to whether or not you are into the whole retro jazz scene..
