Funky! by Scott Frisch (January 12, 2005)
Vladimir Cosma is not necessarily a composer you'd associate with funk, but this album's a good one. Lots of big band, choppy funk with a big, bold, brassy sound. There are also quieter atmospheric moments. The sound is lush and full - there's obviously a large budget, and a large orchestra involved here. There are all sorts of music-types here - French accordian tunes, Jewish numbers, all with a great tongue-in-cheek feel. Check out 'Crazy soldiers' for a wicked midtempo brassy funk tune, and the short 'La cadillac en folie' for some hard action. Easy fans will dig the excellent uptempo organ groover on the flip. Good stuff.
