USA: BWB: BWB(Mack Avenue Records 2016)



A “Triple Dare” worth taking: superstar trio BWB returns with their third album, an entirely original collection handcrafted by Norman Brown (guitar-vocals), Kirk Whalum (saxophone-flute-vocals) and Rick Braun (trumpet-flugelhorn-valve trombone-vocals) combining only the gritty and greasiest elements of Kansas City jazz, Memphis soul and Philly funk. The self-titled, ten-track set struts and seduces with swagger and sophistication along with a mischievous dash of “sweet, tart and tasty” guaranteed to make you “Turn Up” and “Bust A Move.”
