ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If one were attempting to design a prototype for the quintessential contemporary musician in the African-American tradition, trumpeter/fluegelhornist/composer Russell Gunn would be an ideal model. A certified member of the hip-hop generation by age (born in 1971) Russell's early aspirations in the world of rap music took precedence over the trumpet that he began playing in fourth grade. When he reached sixteen, his dedication to the art of jazz took shape.

Rather than abandoning the music he loved, he simply applied its energy, spirit and fiercely proud intellectual rage to the jazz idiom, creating a synthesis that is truly contemporary and singular, exemplified by his groundbreaking group, Ethnomusicology.

As the name clearly indicates, Gunn, like most of the finest young musicians to emerge in the past decade, has developed his music from a wide variety of musical influences. In his case, Gunn weaves together elements of Cuban, Brazilian, African, D.C.'s "Go Go" music, and Hip-Hop into an adventurously progressive jazz style that pays tribute to its tradition while also extending the form.

Different than previous work, pretty damn good though
I was expecting to hear something similar to Ethnomusicology vols 1-3, but this one was quite a bit different. It took a few listens of the album for me to really get it. Only after I got my head in the game was I truly able to appreciate this latest offering. Bionic does not disappoint, PERIOD. It cannot be compared to previous Gunn works. It stands on its own for now. Explosive sax riffs, pretty dope lyrics, and of course Gunn's horn makes this album another win. This guy is on fire, so be prepared to perhaps be seared the first time you listen...

Future of Music? Yes, yes it is.
This album breathes new life into jazz as far as I'm concerned. Russell's sax work is full of energy and fire, but taste as well. Every song is catchy, as well as harmonically exciting. You could dance to it, or you could study it at Humber (Toronto jazz school). If you like music and you're not afraid of something new than pick this CD up. Krunk Jazz = Awesome
