ILLUSTRATION S/T LP
BANGIN HORNS!!!! - BANGIN INTROS!!!!
Bands as Chicago and Blood Sweat and Tears are probably the best known bands in the Big Band jazz rock genre. One of the lesser known in this genre was the Montreal based band "Illustration". They made only one Album which is this one.
The group seperated in 71 -a year after this release. To me some of the tracks has a similar sound as ides of march´s "vehicle".
A blazing hornsection are keepin things tight here with themes that any producer could use for a bangin mid 90 hip hop track!! actually DJ. Einstein from ugly duckling used a bit from the track "upon the earth" to produce "have and have nots" from "Impeach the precedent"(what a nice discovery as it was the first track on the record when I put in on!!).
I especially like the intro on "was it I" so I have extended the intro a bit in the soundclip. The vocals are (excuse me) too Tom Jonesy for me. Nevertheless all things together this Album will definately find its way to my turntable more than just this once!!
a great find and discovery!!!! check it out!! if player dont appear below - refresh page
