Long one of Boston's musical gems, The Fully Celebrated (Orchestra) have always been Jim Hobbs: alto sax, Timo Shanko: bass, and Django Carranza: drums. A jazz band playing the rock clubs like the young punks they were, developing along the way into the sages they have become. Following a series of European and self-releases, Drunk On The Blood Of The Holy Ones is their auspicious AUM Fidelity debut: a stellar set of all new compositions, recorded live in the studio and then mixed utilizing the latest dub technology. The album cannot be pegged as each track is a fully different/fully realized aural experience of AUM level engage. Principal composer/band leader Jim Hobbs is an untouchably gifted master of the alto saxophone, producing a holy array of sounds from his horn that the instrument was not originally designed to manifest. The Fully Celebrated wield an incomparable arsenal of ways and means to transform the here and now through mighty song and trio massage. Joyous bounce and sway, punkolodic riffage, mesmerizing incantation/cosmic groove & a stone flux version of the classic Stalag riddim, dubfully rendered in Brooklyn on the eve of Election '08 with dew of '09 in mind. The CD also contains an embedded music video: the animated skateboard groove and flex film Can You Do The Mackie Burnette? which also features cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum, who was a member of The FCO for a few years at the dawn of this century.
