Massive work from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a combo who manage to pack more music into a 10" single than most groups do a full LP! "Ayo" is a romping groovers that has plenty of bumping bass and drum rolls on the bottom – then lots of the group's really wonderful horns on the top – a blistering blend of brass that stretches up from New Orleans to Chicago, where the group have roots in the world of the legendary Phil Cohran! The tune's easily one of their most grooving numbers – and it's backed by the even more beautiful "Flipside" – a slower tune, but one that still moves – and unfolds with a spiritual jazz quality that's really tremendous.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
