Ozomatli are only a few weeks away from releasing a brand new album called Fire Away, and those with turntables will be very happy to know that it will be released on vinyl as a double LP. Not sure if it will be packaged in a standard cover or in a gatefold, because as you know, the gatefold can be placed on your lap for celebratory interactivity in honor of 4/20, the release date.
Pre-orders are being taken at Amazon for it, so head there and buy a copy or three. If you order from Ozomatli’s own website, you can have the album as a part of a few bundle deals.
The group also recently celebrated their 15th anniversary as a band on April 1st while on tour in Australia. Once they return, they’ll be touring almost non-stop throughout the year, including a number of festival stops.
Singer Yuko Ito studied jazz in New York because she wanted to become more involved with the music she fell in love with while growing up in Japan. Her MySpace page features a phrase that is fitting of her music and her voice: “a born again Brazilian New Yorker”.
Mania De Docê (Funny Baby Face) could have easily been recorded in the mid to late 70′s, as it has an authentic quality that comes from someone who sounds like she was born and raised in South America. Her versions of “Garota De Ipanema” (“Girl From Ipanema”), “Agua De Beber”, and “Flor De Lis” may be able to transport you to the places of inspiration, but it’s Ito’s voice that’ll blow you away. She also does her own background vocals, and again, it sounds very true.
Ito covers a wide range of music outside of the jazz and Brazilian realm, and I’m sure no matter what she embraces with future albums, she will make it sound like her music, as any artist should.
My first introduction to Moustapha Faye was when he played with the group Sing Sing Juniors. Galan U Sabar Ci Ngéwël (The Géwël Tradition Project) is his latest release, and the album features nothing but cultural, historical, and rhythms that Faye and his family (from Dakar, Senegal) have played for generations. No melodies and no songs in the Western sense, it’s nothing but powerful and at times complex rhythms that will keep you moving throughout the duration, it’s the kind of percussion album that I enjoy finding, and the type I enjoy listening to.
There are eight tracks total, from the powerful opening track “Tagumbar” to the moving “Mame Sing Sing”, which goes back to his great-grandfather. What I also find moving about an album like this is that these are sounds preserved for the future, of a music where time is within the rhythms, not something to be rushed by modern conveniences. It’s of the Earth and of the people, and you hear the pulse of the people in these tracks. I’ve been told that this CD is the second in a trilogy of releases Faye is releasing (the Sing Sing Juniors CD released in 2007 is the first of the trilogy, my review of which can be read here), and the final installment, said to represent their elders, will be released in May), and I can’t wait to hear that one too, with the hopes of more albums to come from Faye, his family and friends.
Joe Chambers‘ discography and all one can do is just welcome a new release with respect and honor to the drummer/percussionist who has played incredibly well throughout the years. Horace To Max (Savant) is an album of a man who you can immediate detect just by the way he plays. His band here features Eric Alexander (tenor sax), Helen Sung (piano), Xavier Davis (piano), <>B (percussion, drums), Richie Goode (bass), Dwayne Burno (bass), and vocalist Nicole Guiland.
True to the title, Chambers and friends honor the music and lives of Horace Silver and Max Roach by covering such classics as “Lonesoem Lover”, “Mandacity”, “Man From South Africa”, and “Ecaroh”, where you feel as if you’ve almost traveled back in time to a place in time when these songs were first recorded. There is a sense of elegance that makes jazz… well, “jazz”, it’s the kind of jazz I’m attracted to because of how it sounds and the kind emotions it helps create, in me or in others. Alexander’s solo in “Ecaroh” is brilliant as Davis’ piano accompaniment makes it sound as if they are on the same page, knowing the target and emphasis, and knowing how to get their in their own stylized ways.
If Only For One Night (HighNote) begins with the sound of one man playing with a trumpet, in this case Wallace Roney, and after a very brief passage, he and the band go in for the kill and commit an incredibly funky jazz fusion vibe in the 11½ minute “Quadrant”, almost sounding like Sextant-era Herbie Hancock. “Only With You” brings to mind the sound of that Kansas City jazz entering and welcoming New York City for the first time as it observes the people, sounds and aromas of the bigger city. “Metropolis” comes from the “Giant Steps” school of things, and it’s almost as if you can smell it.
“Let’s Wait Awhile” is a cover of the Janet Jackson song ahd everyone just cools down and commits to creating a sensual mood as described in the song, where one has to wait for what the other really wants. It’s followed by what could be called the afterglow of the Jackson songs, “I Love What We Make Together”, originally recorded (and co-written) by Miles Davis as a song made for vocalist Al Jarreau and also called “Al Jarreau” (you can find it on Disc 12 of the 20 CD box set The Complete Miles Davis at Montreux. The song starts out with Roney playing a muted trumpet, Miles style, before building on it and then when son Antoine places his saxophone work in the mix, it becomes his (Antoine’s) party. In honor, the album ends with “FMS” (“For My Son”) and it’s as if the torch between father and son has been passed.
If Only For One Night can be romantic in nature, but it can also be a way to say that if Wallace Roney only had one night to say thank you to family and friends, he would have done it in the way presented on this album. A job well done.
(If Only For One Night will be released on April 20th, but can be pre-ordered now through the linked CD icon below, which leads to CD Universe.)
A lot of electronic musicians and 8-bit enthusiasts have been covering older music and intrepreting them as if they were made in the era of Nintendo games. So what if Pink Floyd were gamers and decided to release Dark Side Of The Moon as an 8-bit album for the NES? It would sound like this. Moon8, created by Brad Smith, can be downloaded for free by clicking here.
