Roswell Rudd & The Mongolian Buryat Band
Blue Mongol
Soundscape/Sunnyside

By Stacy Meyn

Published June 27, 2006

Jazz trombonist Roswell Rudd also wrangles meliphone and scat singing, not to mention hooking up with the mighty five-member Mongolian Buryat Band, to create what all parties involved deem “trombolian.” With the finesse of an established ensemble, the band performs on limbe (bamboo flute), morin khur (horse head fiddle), ikh khur (horse head bass), khomus (jaw harp), lochin (dulcimer), khalmyk dombra (lute), yatag (zither) and, of course, throat singing. Blue Mongol features traditional Mongolian songs and Rudd’s original project compositions. His trombone blasts and bloops, playing off deep and growly throat singing. Standout blends are the spankin’ “Buryat Boogie” and its tight instrumentation plus zesty Rudd scat singing; and “American Round” with trombone and flute taking an Eastern spin on “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” “Coming In On A Wing And A Prayer” and “Amazing Grace.” Despite its title, this release is a swinging good time had by all.
