Album Notes

Recorded live at the famed Sunside club in Paris, BUMPIN AT THE SUNSIDE captures the Ben Sidran Quartet in full flight.  Including the surprise radio hit "Listen to That Fool Talk" -- a spontaneous jazz rap on history, culture, groove and politics -- this CD shows just why the Quartet is a regular feature on the jazz calendars of the best jazz clubs in Europe.  Now you can hear what afficianados in Paris, Madrid, London, Barcelona and Berlin have known for years: "the groove is gonna get you through times of no money better than money is gonna get you through times of no groove."

Very hip!

I feel like I'm right there tappin and groovin. the words give tribute to the joy, soul and great fun of jazz.


Now thats some skilll,
Wow insperational cd i got it while listening to WSHA one night and it was incrdible the lyrics for "listen to that fool talk". I e-mailed WSHA got his name and bought this cd. Between the insperational lyrics or the skill this quartet has, weither its those cord busten solos or the rythm's they have as a group this cd is a reason why I listen to jazz.

An outstanding & outrageously fun album.
It is an Outrageously funny and great album. I really have enjoyed Put Your Foot On The Rock, You Can't Judge A Book by its Cover and Listen To That Fool Talk. You will want to check out his other album, Nick's Bump also. Really great stuff. JavaMan KMHD

What is Hip!?!?
Like many others here, I got turned on to this disc via hearing the track, "Listen To That Fool Talk," played on radio; in my case, on WPFW in Washington, DC. The entire disc is brilliant - extremely talented & proficient musicians doing what they obviously love. It is tight and modern, with echoes of tradition. Also check out "Nick's Bump," the predecessor disc. And they're both enhanced with cool video. Now if CD Baby could just get a distribution deal for Sidran's new disc, "Live a Pis" (which I have been unable to find anywhere), I would buy the trio all over again. These discs would make great gifts for your hip friends. Get them while you can!

Wow, great music! I bought this CD for the second track "Listen to that Fool Talk" which I heard one morning on WSHA while driving to work. Love it, what a great song. But the whole CD is really great, very creative, enjoyable to listen to. I'd never heard this artist before, so I'm looking forward to exploring his other work.


Very chill selection. I heard about this myself driving to work like Karen (above poster). Great CD from start to finish and very enjoyable to listen to. Always puts me in a good mood. Favorite part is when they groove on E flat during "Listen to That Fool Talk". Get goose-bumps every time a listen to it. Start 'bumpin' ASAP!

When I heard Listen to That Fool Talk on WICN it caught my ear and I had to laugh. I looked up the playlist and wrote the title and artist in my little black book. I bought it and played it over and over to get me through a depressing season called in these parts, Winter.
