Music Evolution

Music Evolution

by Branford Marsalis



Despite the occasional lapse into aimless fusion, Buckshot LeFonque's second album, Music Evolution, is a stronger, more confident record than their eponymous debut, capturing Branford Marsalis and his band -- including cameos by David Sanborn, Guru, and Laurence Fishburne -- finding a vibrant, exciting common ground between hard bop and hip-hop.
