J.D. AND THE SONS OF RHYTHM - CROSSING OCEANS OF TIME
Themes of funky introspection, free-jazz-fusion and swing, inside and outside, are stated, stretched and experimented with on this J.D. and the Sons of Rhythm Double Album. Funky grooves with earth-tones of World-Beat erupt into free-jazz textures and rhythmic modulations as the musicians develop and explore this music.
The live sessions include J.D. Hopkins and sons Jayson and Rickie, and bass,
guitars, keyboard, sax and trumpet. Bassists David Blaetz, Tony Stefanelli and
Kenny Cornelius take turns, guitar regulars Mike Ohm and Sheldon Peterson are
sometimes joined by newcomer Joe Frisina, and guitarist, keyboardist and
guitar-synth player Frank Singer joins in for most of the tracks. J.D. and Sons
add horns for the first time, with Phil Papotnik on sax and flute and Chad
Garrison on trumpet. Singer and Papotnik overdub parts on three cuts above the
drums and electronic percussion of the Hopkins family rhythm section.
