Down to Sea With Saxophones, Brass & a Chum Bucket
"Brooklyn Blowhards" is serious fun, music that reaches back to music of early America while illustrating how Albert Ayler tapped into traditional musics, making it sound new and "free.' Jeff Lederer, who arranged the entire project, was inspired by the brilliant work of artist Matt Kish, who created "Moby Dick in Pictures - One Drawing for Every Page". Play this loud, let the music ring through the house while raising your glass to the ingenuity and vision of this splendid musician and his mighty band.
