Bobby Sparks

präsentiert von: Jazzthetik, Jazzthing & kulturnews

It took a long time to produce this extraordinary collection of different songs. But it was more than worth it - it shows the broad musical vocabulary and the almost inexhaustible creative urge of keyboardist Bobby Sparks. From slamming funk to slow, groovy soul ballads and forays into the genres of straight-ahead jazz, fusion, orchestral and world music: the aptly titled album Schizophrenia - The Yang Project unites a variety of different musical styles without losing sight of the big picture.

"The solo debut of keyboardist Bobby Sparks II is a huge bag of wonders, full of curiosities of all kinds. It's an opus magnum, a weird musical autobiography peppered with allusions and sound documents, an unconventional tribute to the heroes of funk - which is not called "schizophrenia" (...) for nothing." Jazzthing

"It's nice that such bold, off-mainstream album productions still exist." eclipsed Rock Magazine
