News and Review

“Skip Bauchman has a great back story as the cop who played music every chance he could get while on the force, but he’s far from being guy who just dabbled in music. While life distracted him from fully pursuing his melodic and grooving passions, he’s making up for lost time by creating a refreshingly eclectic and stylistically expansive vibe with his band B&B Jazz Company, featuring the incomparable veteran saxman Rodney Taylor. Perfectly typifies the joys of independent music making, Bauchman—an inventive guitarist, producer and drummer—pushes the envelope and jumps all over the map in a cool, high energy way that is in line with the most creative and progressive jazz fusion artists. It’s refreshing to put on a CD, think it’s going to be all about one thing, until the next cut takes you someplace completely different sonically and the next is even more exotic. Drawing from blues, R&B, jazz, rock, Brazilian and the chill-electronica world, among others Bauchman and the B&B Jazz Company make the kind of album adventurous jazz fans dream of when they’re thinking about a world free of arbitrary parameters. Universal Vibe is truly a revelation, and one of the best indie jazz projects of the year.” – Jonathan Widran

Universal Vibe

by Skip Bauchman & the B and B Jazz Company

Universal Vibe, a joyfully schizophrenic celebration that starts with some in the pocket, sax driven jazz funk but expands to show Bauchman’s dynamic abilities on guitar and drums and his affinity for rock, jazz fusion, chill/electronica, old school soul-jazz, blues, TOP-flavored horn jams, Middle Eastern music, Latin jazz and Brazilian music.

Soul Menu On Back

by Skip Bauchman & the B and B Jazz Company

If you’re ready for something smooth and funky with a jazz attitude, then SOUL MENU ON BACK is definitely for you. B&B Jazz Company, a kickin’ Southern California band, knows how to lay it down, with a sound that they describe as “the Crusaders meet Tower of Power after lunch with Bootsy Collins.” It’s all soul and great musicianship on this outing, which contains all original tunes from leader, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Skip Bauchman and horn man Henry Battle. The keyboard solos come from the amazing Edell Shepherd. Together, B&B Jazz Company is a formidable trio of incredibly talented and vibrant musicians who have created a unique sound. As they put it, “Our individual credits range from Barry White to Johnny “Guitar” Watson. Good, bad, or ugly, you won’t find anything that sounds like us.” I say, you can describe this music any way you want, but the bottom line is you’re gonna dig this stuff. From the interesting march-style cadence of the title track to the mellow and captivating tracks “Ride the Mist,” “To Be So Cool,” and “Cuzz I Love It” to the over-the-top funkitude of “Kickin’ It at Skip’s Place” and “Funk in the Basement,” this CD is a kick in the butt, and definitely leaves me wanting to hear more from B&B Jazz Company. Got energy? Want some more? Now you know where to get it. Here’s some savvy investment advice. I’d suggest a “buy” on B&B Jazz Company’s SOUL MENU ON BACK!
