Cosmetic With Jamaaladeen Tacuma ‎– So Tranquilizin’ (1985)

Jamaaladeen Tacuma (born Rudy McDaniel, June 11, 1956) is an American free jazz bassist born in Hempstead, New York, perhaps best known for his albums as bandleader on the Gramavision label and for his work with Ornette Coleman during the 1970s and 1980s (particularly in Coleman’s Prime Time band). Jamaaladeen’s 1988 album Jukebox was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1989, but did not win.

In the 1980s Jamaaladeen started to perform with a group called “Cosmetic”. He was frequently featured in music magazines thanks to his aggressive, driving playing style and his angular fashion sense. In 1981 Tacuma received the highest number of votes ever for an electric bassist in the “talent deserving wider recognition” category of the Down Beat magazine critics poll.

Cosmetic With Jamaaladeen Tacuma recorded two singles and an album for Gramavision, with the last release, a dance mix of “So Tranquilizin'” receiving the Francois Kevorkian remix treatment.
