AllMusic Review by

Actually billed to Bundy K. Brown's solo Directions aegis, "Echoes" is, presumably, a mixing-desk/outtakes revisitation of Brown's brilliant 1996 trio outing with Doug Scharin and James Warden, Directions in Music (the pair are propped on the record's inner label). A sort of East Village-via-Kingston soundtrack to some late-afternoon summer daydream, Brown assembles two gorgeous versions of the title track for this brief outing, bringing the fullness of his acumen for arrangement to bare on a marvelously dimensioned assemblage of funky post-rock, soul-jazz, and impressionistic dub with an instrumental palette as varied as it is texturally rich and detailed. Released by the eclectic British label Soul Static Sound.
