The Boulevard Connection Sut Min Pik EP

It s some indication of the wit involved that Farley is reduced to cracking fat jokes at his own expense. The most peculiar aspect of the movie is that some of it is played straight. Tommy Boy is a good belly laugh of a movie.

The movie is an assembly of cliches and obligatory scenes from dozens of other movies, all its better. As a sketch for a Saturday Night Live show, it would have been a tour de force.

The addition of seven other musicians significantly altered the feel and dynamics of the piece, and Jack DeJohnette s medium-tempo, fairly loose live groove didn t appear to work. Lenny and Jack were playing and somehow things didn t jell, Don Alias explained.

I think Miles really wanted that Buddy Miles sound; he was just getting into the funk thing. He counted off the second time, and it wasn t happening.
