REVIEW: Chewy is Chewy Good

Funk and jazz. Smoothed out but meaty, pungent beats made from an organ, Fender Rhodes piano, bass, and fat back drums. A woman’s soulful voice; doin’ it like Tina Turner said back in the day when she and Ike took the gentle, country, rock song “Proud Mary” and dowsed it with grease and lit it on fire: nice and easy then nice and rough. Yeah, we’ve been hearing this sound from Chaka Khan, representing the funky soul side of the sound to Norman Connors and vocalist Jean Carn playing their unique brand of multi-cultural, freedom jazz. For those opening your ears for the first time in the 1990’s, there was the Brand New Heavies, whose live action British-born acid jazz (the funk breaks from ’60’s and ’70’s artists like Horace Silver, drummer Idris Muhammad,! and electric saxophonist Eddie Harris) injected a hip hop flava, which was the main seasoning on the neo funk and soul souffle of that time.Read More

Right around the time I discovered what the world’s all about, i.e., that we’re lied to and manipulated by a system that is a vast Leviathan, a relentless machine powered by work, consumption, conquest abroad, and repression at home, I took the blue pill of awareness in the form of coming to New York for college, studying Existentialism, and seeing punk rock and avant gard jazz every night. I also read political philosophy books like “The Revolution of Everyday Life.” This book explained a lot – why my parents and other adults I knew would become more dissatisfied and angst ridden the more they bought stuff that they didn’t really need; why as a young teenager I would always go to the neighborhood where it was “happening” and always be disappointed because nothing was; why the revolution promised by the ’60’s, despite great gains, metaphorically speaking, ended in murder and suicide.Read More

Mashed Buddha, Electro and Four Keys To Zen: Rise of the Human Being

The Legendary Headhunters Deliver A Bravura Collection Guest Artists Include Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, Killah Priest, And More

Electronica and the rise of machines in music, like machines everywhere, are moving to include, eclipse, and displace people and the human touch. iPods replace DJ’s in clubs. A buddy of mine pointed out that from Broadway to Las Vegas, living musicians are being replaced by synthesizers and drum machines. Karaoke is now considered an art form and folks who pay $50 to $500 to see a “live show” see a “band” playing computer music. And if there is a live band, as in the case of, say, Beyonce’s ongoing tour, the musicians interface with and are subservient to, the almighty machine in the form of click tracks, videos and other special effects.Read More
