Bucho - Omit the Harsh Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
With an 8-man line-up, Bucho is afforded a four-man horn section that adds just enough spice to each arrangement here. They are not as up front as, say, the horns in Chicago, but they are just as potent in accenting the vocals of soulful singer Gerald Pease. Pease is Curtis Mayfield-smooth throughout this set of make-out music that uses elements of jazz, rhythm and blues and hip-hop. It's already completely evident before he explains it, but Pease lays down his simple rule for a life full of love in the three words of the title cut, "Omit the Harsh." On "That's What I Say," Pease duets with Lydia Pense, long the voice of critics' darlings Cold Blood. The two singers, the horns and funky organ riffs from Ben Schweir make the song the high point of this effort. Think of the quiet side of artists like Stevie Wonder or the Black Eyed Peas and you have an idea of who the audience is that will most appreciate this material. Otherwise, anyone who wants to get busy should find it very useful.
