Boomkat Product Review:
More obscurities exhumed from the jazz-funk crypt by the Numero Group. This time from lost Chicago band Boscoe, likeminded spirits to the giants of '70s avant-garde jazz like Sun-Ra and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Sadly, Boscoe's reputation never really made it outside of their local circle, and their legend was very much confined to their hometown. This, the band's one and only album recording is a combination of studio and live dynamics: the eponymous record was committed as was in Paragon Studios, Chicago. While not as emphatic on experimentation as some of their contemporaries, there's a hard-hitting thud of R&B running throughout this album, with an aggressive rhythm section linking up with impassioned vocals and lyrically expressive horns. True to the climate of the times, Boscoe fuse their freeform funk narratives with political polemics, particularly on the energised Afro percussion of 'We Ain't Free' and the extended riffing of 'Writin' On The Wall'. The material still sounds in great form, with impressive, airy production and some accomplished, impassioned performances - another class act unearthed by the Numero team.
