Trumpeter Daimon Brunton describes the sound of his new album Unlimited-Slip Diff as "pop melodies with funky beats and jazz harmonies" in the upbeat style of Grover Washington Jr or Freddie Hubbard, with, "a few Clifford Brown licks thrown in". Unlimited Slip-Diff explores new directions made possible by fusing jazz harmonies with funk and hip-hop grooves. Eleven of the twelve numbers are original compositions or original arrangements and four tracks utilize two drummers simultaneously. The two covers/arrangements of the Flintstones Theme and the Sesame Street Theme are smokin' groove driven charts that will have your toe tapping instantly. The final original, O Thankyou Lord is a 16 Bar, trad/stomping blues which calls for a New Orleans setting and a serve of fried chicken to seal the deal. With no over-dubbing or fancy technological tricks Unlimited Slip-Diff really is a live gig recorded in a studio. It's filled with energy and raw emotion. Daimon formed his own quintet at the age of 18 and recorded and released his first album in 2003. Following the success of Never Again Such Beauty fans asked for a second helping .. Unlimited Slip-Diff.
