“Like the novel, the music layers a collage of jazz, blues and New Orleans influences over an unsettling haunting tone. The unifying core is blues, as heard in various permutations. Expect surprising interpretations: a Johnny Hodges blues becomes mysterious while a Screamin’ Jay Hawkins stomper is made serene…. Granelli shows clear vision. In Slaughter, a fellow musician describing Bolden’s never recorded sound could just as well be praising the strengths of this disc: ‘There was pain and gentleness – everything – crammed into each number.’ “
