BRANT BJORK - JALAMANTA (1999) ***BY REQUEST***

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This one's for Seth who just happened to drop in and find himself in good company. Another Man's Ruin classic, and arguably Brother Brant's best record. A lot of you prefer Brant's more rockin' stuff, and I certainly respect that, but I've always found Jalamanta to be an experience unto itself. We know Brant can rock, and we know he also loves soul, funk and jazz. Jalamanta is a little light on the former, and heavy on the latter three. That, in my opinion, makes this album absolutely essential. For the most part, Jalamanta is a one-man-band that sounds like a jam. The only other musician present is G.O.M.E. fave Mario Lalli, and his contributions are limited and under the proverbial radar at best. This is Brother Brant's show, and he morphs into Prince and makes a one-man-band sound like a live jam. Absolutely essential, but don't look for KYUSS or FU MANCHU or BB & THE BROS. sounds. You can't have a closed mind here. Regardless of your preferences, though, it'll be impossible to walk away from Jalamanta without respecting Brant Bjork.

hey big jack.... man i saw brant twice - once touring for the operators album and once for keep your cool.... wish he would come back (vancouver)...anyways... i noticed dunarecords.com is offline... wondering if you had the scuttlebutt... i am going to check out turbonegro with nick o. in a few weeks here... looking forward to it... and, lest i sound like a broken record, i am still searching for Disco Marching Kraft and Individual Sky Cruiser Theory...

Dig the Demon Cleaner as well... thanks a lot... i am a daily visitor now...
