John Book, Music For America

Wicked, pulsating jazz from another world, yet Earthbound
35 Days In May is not the first thing one would think about when it comes to jazz, but this isn't your ordinary jazz band. Hell, it's not even a band, for 35 Days In May is from the mind of Jeff Kaye, who released this on his own label, New Indie Artists.

Bobo Bazinsky In The Bronx, it only takes someone with an intense amount of creativity (or cleverness, or boredom, or all three) to come up with a title as confusing as that. Who is Bobo, and why the Bronx? And what does that have to do with jazz? Or is this jazz? It is indeed jazz of a more twisted form, where you do hear the influence of Weather Report and early 70's Miles Davis, but you also hear minimalist electronica thrown in every now and then. Kaye gets some assistance from his friends, such as saxophonist Paul Carr, whose work in the opening track, "Out Of Blue", sets things by sounding like someone opening an apartment window at 5 in the morning to welcome whatever sun can be felt and the traffic slowly picking up. "20 Blind 20" sounds like Moby knocked on the door and said "let's jam, and by the way, here's my friend Goldie." It doesn't move into drum'n'bass or jungle, but it has the potential to do so.

The music here is jazz, but it's modified jazz to where you can't tell what it is or where it's coming from, at least during the first half. The second half shakes off the electronic distortion and effect pedals, albeit briefly, and settles comfortably into a jazz mode where things sound a bit more familiar and comfortable. It is here where you get to hear people such as Jim Kiser on trumpet, Sal DeRaffele on bass, and vocalist Alexe Colbus more prominently without worrying about the incoming forces of sound.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, because as one gets comfortable with the traditional sound, one wants to fall back into the chaotic sounds of the first half of the album, where a sax solo could morph into a pulsating looping sound that may never come back the same way again. The CD is just under 40 minutes, and while I would have liked to have heard more, the length is a perfect dosage and one way of being impatient in the wait for more to come.
