BASEMENT BOYS: "The Basement Boys Present Mudfoot Jones"
By Glenn Whipp, Staff Writer
Under the guise of a fictional Louisiana blues drummer, dance music producers Teddy Douglas and Jay Steinhour, aka The Basement Boys, have come up with a rousing, foot-stomping record that mixes old-time jazz, gospel, Latin rhythms and John Lee Hooker-style blues. This isn't sampled music; everything on this sound collage comes from the Boys' band, which includes a couple of veterans from George Clinton's P-Funk horn section. Given "Mudfoot's" instrument of choice, the emphasis is on the beat. And on numbers like the infectious "Everything's Gon' Be Alright," the band delivers and then some. Get ready to get down.
