"Big Appetite" is more than a collection of delicious audio treats. It's a diary ... a chronicle of overconsumption ... real cautionary tales about lust, desire, greed and hunger.
"Big Appetite" explores the possibility of what happens to many people when a basic human need is not met ... LOVE. It also poses the question ... "what's eating you?" ... getting to the root of decadent behavior.
This release is as effective as a good dinner menu for several reasons: The songs offer a selection for your mental and physical well being ... (ie. they make you think and dance). The metaphors are real and tangible like great ingredients you can taste with every beat. The melodies, basslines, beats and rhymes are all fresh, as if they were plucked from the vine and fed directly into your earholes. Nothing on this release is overcooked !!!
Here are some of the Unique Entrees:
Hamid Drake (on drums) is as exquisite as ever!
The composition and bass playing of Brent Olds (Killa O) is rhythmic and delectable, it is altogether ancient Africa and future post-hop!
Jack Walker's saxophone and flute work is traditionally classic, however, it is his wise and tantilizing "cool talk" (reminiscent of Isaac Hayes & Barry White) that brings aromatic flavor.
NapoleonSolo yields a tasty platter of lyrical offerings to savor, even for the most discriminating of tastes. He is in top form on "BIG APPETITE" as a producer, song-writer and vocal performer, redefining the role of a good MC and beat-boxer.
This sumptuous feast is served up well by the first class engineering and mixing of Tobe
Donohue (Bootsy Collins, DJ HiTek, Animal Crackers) and mastered by the 1997 Grammy Award Nominee and mix/master of sound, Bob Power (Common, Erykah Badu, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest).
"Big Appetite" is full of real flavor ... No Fillers !!!
