The new Big Fun 3 “Fade Out” album release is harder, heavier, and funkier than ever. Once again Bruce Cohen, on Hammond organ, reunites with the line-up from the second Big Fun 3 album. Peter Lucas on sublime crazed guitar, and Tony Foster on solid funked up drums and percussion.
The improvisation and density is still there, but with the emphasis now on the groove. The title “Fade Out” came about when the trio realized all the tracks simply faded out. It was a fitting way to end each track, since the jams seemed to just keep going, with no end in sight.
Miles Davis famously said, “The music speaks for itself.” And that same sentiment works for “Fade Out.”
