"The tracks condense rage, desperation and intelligence in an amazingly beautiful music which really seems to know no boundaries in his sensual and - at the same time - staggering force."
- MASSIMO RICCI
"The Right" seeps into the underground and tries to uproot dissent. Some scared rabbits here (see review quotes):
How many people do we have to kill before our leaders should be held acountable?
"...the title track, an eight-minute-ish spoken word rant about "power-wielding fiends" (the list of whom includes Bush and Nixon as well as Hitler, Stalin and Saddam). Now, I'm as liberal as the next unpaid music critic, but I can't help but point out that neither H.W.'s nor Dubya's death tolls have climbed into the millions (yet)." Splendid The Writer claims to not be "for" the current political atmosphere and yet they write...
"There is a strong tradition of political commentary associated with jazz music, particularly from the sixties"
" ...if the tradition is dying out I will be happy to see it go."
