Quartet reeds the Albuquerque Jazz Festival with original music
By Mel Minter
James Brown made his mark as the Godfather of Funk, but he apparently led a second and secret life as a composer of contemporary chamber music, specializing in brief, jazz-inflected pieces for saxophone quartets. He often collaborated simultaneously with several other composers—among them, Steve Reich, Johann Sebastian Bach and Duke Ellington.

Dirt City Radio Old Country Blues · P.O.S. Never Better · The Handsome Family Honey Moon
Albuquerque's Dirt City Radio puts forth the kind of country you can sway to while swilling whiskey on your back porch. One acoustic guitar plucks out a melody while the other repeats the chord progression so many times it's hypnotic. Dirt City doesn't go wild, but the energy is high enough to keep you awake in your rocking chair. Slightly ominous and just a wee bit gritty, Old Country Blues remains grounded in its rural roots.
