I owe a lot to this record. Released in the Fall of 1994, Blowout Comb effectively soundtracked the next six months of my life, turning me on to a whole new cast of heroes — namely Roy Ayers, but not limited to: Grant Green, Shuggie Otis, etc. If the group’s debut, Reachin, led to my raiding and recontextualizing my father’s jazz/soul collection at age 17, then Blowout only upped the ante two years later. Synthesizing and re-purposing the past few decades of soul, jazz and funk, the rabbit hole was blown wide open. Pun very much intended. In typical grand fashion, Light In The Attic Records reissued the LP on vinyl last month.

For those interested in the album’s source material, here’s something I picked up in a cardboard sleeve a few years back — DJ Jedi’s mid ’00s 70 minute compilation of samples, Blowout Breaks.
