'...We're not trying to push back any frontiers...' - part of the lyrics from 'Jumpin' on the Bandwagon' which express the band's intentions for this album. '...we try to use the familiarity and durability of past classics as a springboard to express our own feelings about life in the new millennium', says bandleader Kit Packham in his sleeve notes. He goes on to say a few words about each track which draw on a wide variety of musical genres within a broad jazz and blues spectrum. You may hear Louis Jordan, Ian Dury, Willie Dixon, Charles Mingus, Chuck Berry, Viv Stanshall, Louis Prima, Noel Coward, Mose Allison... or none of these! What you will hear is some great songs played by a great band. R E V I E W S Humorous blues lyrics don't come any better - cleverer or funnier - nowadays than those from Kit Packham's pen, and there are two or three new examples here which are as good as anything I've heard from him before. 'We Don't Normally Work This Cheap' in particular is exceptionally witty, and actually had me laughing out loud the first time I heard it. 'Cleaning Up My Act' too, is as amusing a piece of 1920s-style-jazz-vaudeville as you'll hear this side of the Bonzos. Anyone expecting this surfeit of good humour to equate with a lack of musical seriousness would be wildly mistaken, since Packham's comedy sits upon a bedrock of real jump'n'jive know-how and instrumental earnestness - this is a band, after all, which even gives a 'beats-per-minute' reading beside each track title. Personnel-wise, the band is not greatly changed from that which appeared on 1999's From Top to Toe, with Billy Jenkins again displaying the subtler side of his guitar range and tastefully producing throughout. Also worthy of mention here are the keyboard skills of Perry White, Simon Da Silva's trumpet work, and the fine rhythm backline of Chris Rodel (double bass) and Kenrick Rowe (drums). Sax duties are shared between Tracey Mendham and Kit himself. The songs, all originals this time, display a wide range of influences, not just the blues, jazz and jive tunes Packham praises in his amusingly honest sleeve note, but also Caribbean and Latin American music. The band switch styles and tempos with ease, and although Kit is not the greatest singer on the block, he plays the "personality vocalist" card with some aplomb. All things considered it's a very impressive set. Rating: 8 - Paul Lewis (copyright 2001 Blueprint magazine) S S S S S S S S S S S S I confess that I haven't checked, but with this CD, I'm pretty sure I now have the first reference to David Beckham's haircut in my collection! Singer and saxophonist Kit Packham inhabits a nightmare world where clouds follow him around just to rain on him, his cat disappears under mountains of junk mail, maniac truckers rule the roads and only leave the cab "for diesel, the toilet or a doner kebab", his mobile phone never works and, when he does get to play a gig, he finds that "a big screen above us plays an old cup final, the dressing room doubles as the men's urinal" - welcome to the third millennium! As you may have guessed then, all the material is original - very original at times - if occasionally just a little too wordy (but these songs do stay in your head long after the album has ended). Much of the music is jump or jive, owing a lot to the likes of Louis (take your pick - Jordan, Prima, even a snatch of Satch) but often with it's own little musical twists, most often provided by guitarist Billy Jenkins, a well-known innovator on the UK jazz and blues scenes, whose solos and fills are kind of, er, Jimi Hendrix plays Tiny Grimes as imagined by Vernon Reid of Living Color. Drummer Kenrick Rowe also deserves a mention for being totally on the ball, though there are no slackers here. There are a couple of Caribbean styled pieces in "Fried Bananas" (cod Louis Jordan plays cod calypso) and the mellow "Simple Things In Life", "Junk Mail" is almost Little Richard style, "Rough and Ready Blues" is virtually that, and the final number is a lyrically very clever and up to the minute song
