Hi music fans,

AllAboutJazz has finally published my interview with writer Gordon Marshall about exotica...at least my take on it Hope you enjoy it!

"O'Neill, in addition, sports a smaller unit that plays in clubs—an exotica quartet. If John Zorn is an exotica Picasso, O'Neill is his Georges-Braque counterpart in cubism's transposition to music. Although, like his orchestra, O'Neill's quartet is as fun and relaxing to listen to as quaffing a stiff martini, it is, likewise, complex and serious. As Zorn patches together strands of surf, Latin and "bachelor-pad" music in such bands as The Dreamers, O'Neill breaks up similar stuff and reconstructs it in kaleidoscopic reverie-scapes. More to the point, as Braque may have been the finer cubist, O'Neill may be, in the long run, a stronger exoticist than Zorn."

Mr. Ho / Brian O'Neill
