If there’s any truth to a title, it fits with AutorYno’s Cosmopolitan Traffic (Tzadik). The traffic in this case involves the different styles of music played, a mixture of hard rock, heavy metal, jazz, and funk, with hints of Klezmer. The guitar work of David Konopnick and Gary Lugas stand out amazingly, along with Bertrand Delorme’s bass work, and together they sound like music I would love to listen to on a regular, if not daily basis. “Krakow” begins up an upbeat funk feel before it splits into something metalesque, but the guitar melody may reveal something culturally significant. Some of it is aligned with what Vernon Reid had done before and after Living Colour, where the guitars are free take off into solos of power while maintaining a level of structure. The rhythm section of Delorme and drummer Cyril Grimaud also maintains a solid basis, whether it’s in the Pat Metheny-esque airiness of “Irene And Sandy” to the piercing guitar work of “Warsaw” that may bring to some memories of Allan Holdsworth and his axe work. Whatever brings you into Cosmopolitan Traffic, this is a jam that you’re going to want to stay in for awhile. Bring a picnic basket.
