Sandy Bull: Jukebox School of Music (ROM Records)

Byron Coley, Spin, December 1988

IN THE decade and a half since his last release, the rumor circulated that Sandy Bull had died. After a string of generally brilliant albums on Van­guard, the guitarist seemed to disap­pear into air. Thus, it was a real pleasant surprise when Bull showed up with Don Cherry at McCabe's Gui­tar Workshop in Santa Monica a few years back, and it's a fuggin' treat that he's finally got some new tunes avail­able. I'm not that thrilled that his label has opted to release Jukebox School of Music only on CD and cas­sette, but I'll learn to live with it.
