KALEIDOSCOPE : GREETINGS FROM KARTOONISTAN..............................
...............WE AIN'T DEAD YET (US'90)

6TH and last record from one of the best bands ever.
I'm not kidding.


The same lineup that made the band's previous reunion album, 1976's When Scopes Collide, came together again for this surprise 1990 release, wryly subtitled "We Ain't Dead Yet." It's stronger than its predecessor. The Kartoonistan album was conceived as the 25th anniversary of Kaleidoscope's first album, Side Trips.As in the previous set, there are covers of the Coasters ("Down in Mexico") and Duke Ellington ("Wild Man"); here we also get Abdullah Ibrahim's "African Market Place," Don and Dewey's "Jungle Hop," and the Music Machine's 1966 hit "Talk Talk." And a couple more styles are brought under the Kaleidoscope umbrella: flamenco and klezmer. In true Kaleidoscope tradition, the arrangements are full of exotic instruments and the standard of musicianship is high. Practically anyone looking to expand his or her musical horizons would do well to give the Kaleidoscope a try.

The Kaleidoscope is not only a band but a concept, for each rendering of a piece of material leads to the same place, a place called Kartoonistan.

Speaking of Kaleidoscope.

I'm dying to get my hand on 'When Scopes Collide' by Kaleidoscope. Does anyone have quality mp3's of that album? Claude
