Richie Goods (& Nuclear Fusion)
“Live at the Zinc Bar”
I really dug the completely open and improvisatory approach to these tunes. You will find some actual Headhunter tunes in here (“Sly” & “Palm Grease”) as well as fusion classics such as Wayne Shorter’s “Elegant People”) in addition to a few original tunes (all of which stand up!).
All in all, it’s really the Headhunters rhythm section having fun with the music they’re so familiar with in a slightly different setting (and adding a few of their own to spice it up). But if you love the genre (as I do) and have pretty much worn out you’re other versions of these classics, I definitely recommend this fresh take on some favorites. I’d love to see this band live… They’re definitely bringing it!
