The Jazz Record Art Collective is changing things up a bit as we present the Chris Greene Quartet performing Madhouse’s 1987 recording “8”.
““8” by Madhouse - An enigma of an album if there ever was one, “8” was recorded over a span of three days in late September 1986 by Prince and saxophonist Eric Leeds (a member of Prince’s band “The Family” during this time). It makes sense that a musician like Prince, known for creating incredibly complex yet catchy popular music, also expressed a desire to create a funk fusion record in the mid-80s. To that end, Prince recorded all of the instrumental tracks on “8” except for the woodwinds done by Eric Leeds, but this is obscured by the fact that Prince himself used other people’s names in the recording credits and reviews of the album. Even as an instrumental album, Prince finds a way to push the envelope with a number of production tricks and overdubbed conversations which are perfectly complemented by punches from the Brecker-like sound of Eric Leeds. A project that exposes yet another interesting facet of the multi-dimensional musician that is Prince, Madhouse’s “8” is a pivotal album for understanding the musical development of Prince as well.”
