Paolo Apollo Negri —
Cobol ... CD Hammond Beat, 2012. Used ...
Massive keyboards from Paolo Apollo Negri – not just the Hammond organ you might expect from the label, but the full range he's been exploring in recent years – Fender Rhodes, clavinet, Arp, moog, and lots more! The vibe is tight and funky throughout – a blend of 60s and 70s instrumental modes, often with the feel of some lost soundtrack jams – the sorts of cuts that Quincy Jones or Lalo Schifrin might have penned for a movie score back in the day! There's a bit of vocals on the set – from Gizelle Smith, Teresa Reeves Gilmer, and Miss Modus – who each sing on one song – leaving the other 10 tracks as wicked instrumentals. Titles include "Cobol 68", "Red Ant", "Into The Sky", "Mouth Of The Gun", "Hot Wax", "Love Gambler", and "Retrotheque". CD
