fo/mo/deep Melds Passion with Improvisation in “A Beautiful Bang”
New CD by Columbus’s Jazz/Funk Band – fo/mo/deep;
In the ‘70s, bands like the Headhunters and Tower of Power fused elements of jazz with Afro vibes and R&B to create a titillating musical stew. It was an unpredictable trip of cultural grooves that expanded not only the music but the social consciousness of America. Many have attempted to recreate this magical moment in time but few have successfully captured the unbridled passion of the message … that was until fo/mo/deep released “A Beautiful Bang.”
Known for their ability to “rekindle the classic and fundamental elements of funk, jazz, and all-around soul-penetrating goodness that is all too absent in today’s music” (as declared by BusTown Music), fo/mo/deep of Columbus, Ohio is about to take the international music scene by storm.
“A Beautiful Bang” is the sophomore CD release for fo/mo/deep. Their first CD, “Eclecticism,” received rave reviews. Rob Young of The Urban Flux declared, “Their unique groove uncoils with a twist of eclectic jazz/funk rhythms that’s not heard often enough these days.” Known for their intelligently energetic and unpredictable shows, their concerts supporting the release of “Eclecticism” created a formidable reputation for this funk-infused band.
“A Beautiful Bang” masterfully transfers the insatiable energy of the band’s live performances to the recording studio and pays respect to the diverse cultural heritage of American music. The songs engrave the canvas of the record with sizzling bursts of improvisation, while also capturing the emotional essence of more delicate instrumental conversations and flavors. Tastefully varied but cohesively melded, the music lives in the moment.
“The songs come from all over my life. We touch the blues, Afrobeat, Brazilian groove, funk, neo-soul and jazz. This CD is a lot more eclectic than our first,” said bassist and bandleader Ron Holmes.

Hayes Carll hasn’t been resting on his laurels since topping critics polls and winning awards for his 2008 album, Trouble in Mind. Instead, he’s been on the road nearly nonstop with his band, "The Poor Choices" blasting through honky tonks and rock clubs across the U.S. and beyond. Along the way, he’s been inspired to write a crop of new tunes that the acclaimed songwriter says are “a layman’s take on our country – a snapshot of America in some small way.” The result: the sharply drawn collection KMAG YOYO (& Other American Stories), his second release from Lost Highway. KMAG YOYO is pronounced “kay-mag, yo-yo.”
A military acronym that stands for “Kiss My Ass Guys, You’re on Your Own,” the title track is one of a dozen songs that brings to life such rich characters as its protagonist, a young Army foot soldier in Afghanistan who becomes a Pentagon guinea pig. The scorching guitars of “KMAG YOYO” equate to musical adrenaline, while the hallucinatory tale of military intrigue unfolds.
Fiery rock, twangy country, pensive folk and even a touch of gospel comprise KMAG YOYO’s sonic palette, produced by Brad Jones (also at the helm for Trouble in Mind). Rather than enter the studio with a batch of completed material, Carll and his band picked up where they’d left off onstage – jamming on riffs they’d developed on the road. “I wanted to challenge myself musically,” says Carll, “and see if I could capture that live dynamic. A lot of the songs came with the music first, with the music calling the lyrics.” After completing the instrumental tracks with the band, Carll set to work, his witty wordplay matching the temper of the instrumentation. The honky-tonkin’ “Hard Out Here,” with its raucous sing-along chorus, and the full-on rocker “Stomp and Holler” document denizens making the best of the economic downturn, including one
