CLIFFORD LAMB has issued BLUES & HUES [Weber works Records 19101] a record which champions mashup, i.e. melding two works to create a third, in other words—a hybrid. The 8 tracks here [46:38] are all Lamb’s compositions and they are fine. What they are mashed up with is explained in the full liner notes. One piece, “Smiles For Miles”, is not a mash up. Back up is drawn from a pool of musicians including Cindy Blackman Santana, Buster Williams, Nicholas Payton and vocalists Laura Vall and Alex Brown. A moving recording.
