THE LIBERATORS-THE LIBERATORS(2011)

Sydney-based new afro-funk formation THE LIBERATORS can certainly be said to be off to a smoldering start; with their debut gig taking place at Russ Dewbury’s famous A Night At The Jazz Rooms, the liner notes of their debut album being written by Antibalas frontman Amayo (Daptone Records / Ropeadope / Afrosound Records), and the patronage of DJs such as Gilles Peterson (BBC 1), this group can count on some serious support! Not only does this 10 piece outfit include members of Dojo Cuts among its division, but for their first full-length they also call on the vocal talents of guests such as Jojo Kuo (Fela Kuti / Daktaris / Antibalas), Roxie Ray (Dojo Cuts / Underbelly) and Ghanaian-born Afro Moses. The result is an incredible set of new afrobeat tunes and funky jazz-dance grooves proving the masterful musicianship of this band.
The self-titled debut effort by The Liberators is a solid example of the type of new afro-inspired funk that is rivaling the greatness of classics from 70s Africa. With a fierce array of super heavy guitars, percussion, and horns – all put together with a range of sounds that really portray the full spectrum of their style – The Liberators serve up some sizzling treats! From opening stormer “Multiculture”, to the kicking rhythm of “Rags To Riches”, the uplifting “Liberation” or the jazzy inflections of “Denga” featuring legendary drummer JoJo Kuo on vocals, this album is a tightly delivered assortment of funky afrobeat tunes with a jazz-dance flavor. Turn on your air-conditioning people, the heat is on!

THE LIBERATORS ARE:
Andrew - drums
Andrew - bass
Ed - guitar/percussion
Nathan - guitar
Dave - keys/percussion
Dia - percussion
Mike - tenor sax
Ken - trumpet
Akira - bone
Symo - baritone

EMPRESARIOS-SABOR TROPICAL(2011)





Sabor Tropical offers a variety musical styles gathered around an overarching Latin influenced sound.  The album will be released on January 11, 2011 on the Washington DC based Fort Knox Recordings, it marks the first full length album by the DC based Empresarios.

What you hear on Sabor Tropical is a mixture of funk, dub, soul, reggaeton, cumbia, salsa, and South Asian sounds.  The individual influences are apparent on most tracks, yet the flow from one to the next is very smooth.  Part of this comes from the fact that the tracks will use a particular element, say a reggaeton bass line, without trying to reproduce the formulaic song version of the genre it comes from.  The other part of this must certainly be that apart from the instruments they play, each of the five members of Empresarios is also a producer.  It takes a lot skill to use what many would consider disparate elements and make them work together well.  Thankfully these guys have what it takes to pull it off.

The album contains fifteen tracks with a mix of songs and instrumentals.  Of the songs, "Sabor Tropical" has a salsa rhythm and is the most up tempo piece on the album.  "Pereo Intenso" and "La Negrita" have reggaeton influences, and work well as dance tracks.  Empresarios keep the reggaeton elements under control, avoiding cliches.  With the exception of "Cumbia" which lives up to the title, the other instrumental tracks are offer dubby beats with a variety of different elements like congas, Asian strings, funk horns, each spicing up the tracks.  "Siesta" could work in the soundtrack to Shaft, while "Sohl" could easily be playing at a Mumbai night club.  "Pensamiento" features hypnotic congas.  I could go on about every cut this way.  The sophisticated production shines through in all the tracks.

TOMMY GUERRERO-LIFEBOAT AND FOLLIES(2011)

More than a decade of tirelessly working his craft has passed since, and has resulted in the album you now behold- “Lifeboats And Follies” is by far Guerrero’s most fully realized sonic collage. The tide of groove remains, but is formed by the far denser and complex interplay of an expanded quiver of instruments and sounds. The simplicity of Tommy’s early work was catchy, but the expansive compositional skill that has shown itself amongst the tracks here is cinematic in scope, offering a richer, more muscular tone and greater depth of emotion. The soup has been thickened, the fire is smoldering, and Tommy is sweating it out all night, every night.

Mrs HCN (GR)
 Doors Open: 21.00 Γεννήθηκε ως Horace Hinds το 1951, στο Kingston, της Jamaica αλλά έμελλε να γίνει γνωστός με το όνομα Horace Andy ή αλλιώς “The Sleepy”. Το 1967 έκανε την πρώτη του ηχογράφηση για τον παραγωγό Phil Pratt. Ήταν το 1970 όμως που πραγματοποίησε το πρώτο, από τα πολλά που θα ακολουθούσαν, breakthrough της καριέρας του συνεργαζόμενος με τον Coxsone Dodd's του Studio One. Ο Dodd ήταν μάλιστα που αποφάσισε τότε για την αλλαγή του ονόματος. Κοντά του ηχογράφησε αρκετά singles όπως τα "Something on My Mind", "Love of a Woman", "Every Tongue Shall Tell", "See a Man's Face", "Night Owl", "Fever", "Mr. Bassie" κι ένα από τα γνωστότερα κομμάτια της ιστορίας του το "Skylarking", που ως Sound System επιτυχία ανέβηκε στο top των Τζαμαϊκανών chart. Παράλληλα και καθώς ήταν φανερό πως ανέτειλε το άστρο του άρχισε να συνεργάζεται και με άλλους παραγωγούς όπως ο Derrick Harriott στο "Lonely Woman", οι Ernest και Joseph Hoo Kim στο "Girl I Love You", ο Gussie Clarke στα "Love You to Want Me" & "Delilah" κι ο Phil Pratt στα "Get Wise", "Feel Good", "Money Is The Root of All Evil". Ωστόσο η πιο επιτυχημένη του συνεργασία με παραγωγό αποδείχτηκε αυτή με τον σπουδαίο Bunny Lee στα μέσα των 70’s. Μαζί δημιούργησαν singles που θεωρούνται πλέον κλασσικά όπως τα "Just Say Who", "Don't Try To Use Me", "You Are My Angel", "Zion Gate", "I've Got to Get Away" κ.α. Στα 1977 μετακόμισε στο Hartford του Κονέκτικατ, όπου ξεκίνησε να ηχογραφεί για τον Everton DaSilva. Την επόμενη χρονιά κυκλοφόρησε το album “Pure Ranking” με το οποίο έδειξε την ανυπομονησία του για την έγερση της Dance Hall. Αλλά έπρεπε να περάσουν 4 χρόνια ακόμη για να φτάσουμε στο 1982 και την ανάδειξη του σε άνθρωπο κλειδί για την εξέλιξη της dancehall με το album “Dance Hall Style”. Το 1985 μετακόμισε στο Λονδίνο, ηχογραφώντας σε συνεργασία και με τον Mad Professor κι επισκεπτόμενος συχνά τη Τζαμάικα.  Ταξιδεύοντας μέσα από τα μονοπάτια της rock steady/early reggae, της lovers rock, και της dancehall σε όλη τη διάρκεια της μέχρι τώρα πορείας του, ο Horace Andy έγραψε και συνεχίζει να γράφει τεράστια hits και albums, προχωρά μπροστά με τις ιδέες του τη μουσική και δε διστάζει να ταξιδέψει σε άγνωστα μουσικά νερά κάνοντας το άγνωστο κάτι καινούργιο και συνάμα δικό του. Με αυτόν τον τρόπο έχει κατορθώσει να ‘ναι διαρκώς στην αιχμή των μουσικών εξελίξεων και ν’ ανανεώνει τις γενιές των fun του. Τεράστια κι αναμφισβήτητη απόδειξη γι’ αυτό αποτελεί η συνεργασία του το 1990 με τους τεράστιους πιονέρους της μουσικής που ακούν στο όνομα Massive Attack, που αποτέλεσε ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα breakthrough της καριέρας του και τον έβαλε για τα καλά στο μουσικό χάρτη όπως αυτός θα διαμορφωνόταν μέσα στη δεκαετία των 90’s. H συνεργασία ξεκίνησε με την προοπτική να προσφέρει o Horace Andy την ιδιαίτερη φωνή του για τη δημιουργία πειραματικών vocals στο πρώτο album των Masssive «Blue Lines». H συνεργασία αυτή τελικά έδωσε κάτι πολύ περισσότερο. Δημιούργησε έναν ολόκληρο μουσικό κόσμο με τη γέννηση του Trip – Hop ήχου γράφοντας ιστορία. Η δημιουργική αυτή συνεργασία μάλιστα δε διακόπηκε ποτέ δίνοντας του τον τίτλο του συνοδοιπόρου και του μοναδικού καλλιτέχνη που έχει συνεργαστεί μαζί τους σε όλα τους τα album.Οι live εμφανίσεις του Horace Andy είναι μια μοναδική εμπειρία για τους λάτρεις της μουσικής που θέλουν να γευτούν τη δύναμη ενός από τους ζωντανούς Reggae θρύλους κι ένα reggae – dancehall – trip/hop show που δε πρέπει κανείς να χάσει.Μαζί του η θρυλική dub μπάντα από τη Βρετανία Dub Asante. Οι εκρηκτικοί Dub Asante έχουν γράψει τη δική τους ξεχωριστή σελίδα στη reggae παίζοντας για μερικούς από τους μεγαλύτερους reggae καλλιτέχνες του κόσμου. Αυτή τη περίοδο και για καλή τύχη του Ελληνικού κοινού συνεργάζονται σε όλες τις live εμφανίσεις του μαζί με τον Horace Andy κι έτσι θα τους απολαύσουμε δίπλα του.

New Orleans Funk-The Original Sound of Funk 1960-75.soul jazz records

SOMETHING FROM THE PAST!



This is a definitive collection of New Orleans Funk featuring acknowledged masters of funk next to some of the earlier artists who shaped the meaning of funk. The album is also filled with many rare, sought after and undiscovered funk tracks. It covers the period from the emergence of New Orleans Funk in the early 1960's through to the mid-seventies. The record is an essential part of anyone in any way interested in Funk's record collection. It has some vital ingredients in it that you can't find elsewhere. With the sound of the New Orleans Funeral March Bands, Mardi Gras Indian Tribes and Saturday Night Fish Fries all as inspiration New Orleans Funk developed into a unique sound. New Orleans is a port town. Originally owned by the French, this was where many slaves were brought from the West Indies. Many of these slaves came from Haiti and brought with them the religion of Voodoo and its drums and music. It became one of the first parts of America to develop a strong African-American culture leading to the invention of Jazz in the early 1900s. A main feature of Jazz in New Orleans were the Jazz Funeral Marching bands. Solemn Brass bands accompanying a coffin would, on burial, be joined by a second line of drummers and dancers which would turn the event into a celebration of the spirit cutting free from earth. This African tradition is strong in New Orleans and still goes on to this day. The backline drums play a syncopated style that is neither on the beat nor the off-beat. It is these rhythms that are the basis of New Orleans Funk. The album comes with a booklet presenting a historical explanation to how and why this music came about, and with lots of information about the people involved.

ANOTHER GREAT COMPILATION FROM SOUL JAZZ RECORDS!!!
