"With so many young
groove and jazz groups trying to sound old-school, it's nice to hear a band that actually is
old-school: Denver-based Buckner Funken Jazz, whose leader, trumpeter Rod Buckner, was
grooving on stage back when Medeski, Martin and Wood still had 8:00 bedtimes. On its
latest record, Late For School, the seven-piece outfit mixes up
urban-flavored, Headhunters-style 70s jazz-rock, sultry blues and forward-looking acid
jazz, sweetened up with keyboards, congas and flute solos. You say you wanna dance? To
real music? Get to Round Midnight tonight, when BFJ celebrates the release of the album
with a rare Boulder show."
