Some groups "get it", some don't. Flim & the BB's do. They have all the characteristics of a good fusion group, including quality compositions, great musicianship, and the right dynamics. Flim & the BB's are both tight and loose at the same time, and they never overdo it. TriCycle is a very good album by a very good band.

This is the debut album by ace bassist Jimmy "Flim" Johnson & sax virtuoso Dick Oatts with keyboards & drums by Bill Barber & Bill Berg that is well-known among audiophiles as a test CD for evaluating audio systems. That aside, the music in & of itself is outstanding. The title cut Tricycle has strong keyboards with heavy bass support. Highwire has a distinct circus flavor, but is delicate & almost music-box-like. The tour de force track for me is Lunch Hour Wedding March. The piece starts with a staccato piano intro with synth harmony blending in immediately. The middle of the number is prime "heading down the highway" music. Flim Johnson's strong bassline is awesome. For fans of piano & sax, one cannot waste money buying this CD.
