Etiquetas: Andy Bey. The reissue boasts remastered sound. InHerbie Hancock's group the Headhunters, which brought him immense success at the time, released their first solo album. While the thought of a Hancock-less Headhunters might puzzle some listeners, the group did extremely well without him -- in fact, Survival of the Fittest may be the ultimate space-funk album.
The interplay between all musicians is tighter than tight, especially in the rhythm section of Jackson-Clark-Summers, who can effortlessly make everything groove and move. The first track, "God Make Me Funky," marks Jackson's debut as a lead vocalist -- a role he unfortunately wouldn't reprise too often. While his singing is a bit off-key, his vocals owe much to the blues tradition and carry great urgency and authenticity. At the end of the song, his voice is quite reminiscent of Ray Charles.
Survival of the Fittest is consistently interesting and features lots of great performances by excellent musicians -- Album) it never forgets to groove. Unfortunately, the album is out of print and was only issued on CD in Japan.
Hancock is not a featured player on the album, although he did produce these sessions. Six tracks including 'God Make Me Funky'. Etiquetas: The Headhunters. Johnny "Hammond" Smith - Black Coffee Wonderful are reissued in full on a single CD, Black Coffee. Although influenced by Jimmy Smith, this particular organist was also a strong grooving player, able to play both blues and more complicated chord changes. The material with eight colorful originals including "I Remember Clifford," "Body and Soul," and "He's a Real Gone Guy" among the 15 numbers has a fair amount of variety, and Johnny "Hammond" Smith is heard at his best throughout this reissue.
Etiquetas: Johnny Hammond. Last Moment. Etiquetas: Attila Laszlo. The Headhunters - Straight from the Gate The Headhunters are an American jazz-funk fusion band, best known for their albums they recorded as a backing band of jazz keyboard player Herbie Hancock during the s. History Herbie Hancock originally assembled the band for his album Head Hunters.
The Headhunters' new lineup and instrumentation, retaining only wind player Bennie Maupin from Hancock's previous sextet, reflected his new musical direction. Bassist Paul Jackson was really the only other member who maintained a continuous presence in the lineup in subsequent recordings and concerts.
For the next Hancock album featuring Headhunters, 's Thrust, Mike Clark took over drumming duties. Both Mason and Clark contributed drums to the Hancock's 's solo album Man-Child which featured 18 musici].
This song was sampled by The Fugees, among many others, for their track "Ready or Not," and has been covered by Jamiroquai as a live track. While Hancock's Man-Child moved a bit towards more commercial sounds, Survival of the Fittest kept Headhunters focused to intense jazz-funk.
Vocals were heard on two songs but there was still lots of experimental fusion on the album the band's music is called "space-funk" on some re-issues of the album. As the s turned to the s, Herbie Hancock drifted away from the band as he moved into his electro-oriented phase, and they ceased operation as a visible unit. The band reunited with Hancock for the album Return of the Headhunters.
Clark, Jackson and Summers have since continued recording and performing as The Headhunters, with varied incarnations such as Victor Atkins or Robert Walter filling in for Hancock on keyboards, and utilizing the amazing gifts of Donald Harrison as often as possible. They toured again inwith Jerry Z on keyboards and bassist T. Stevens and, most recently, in have done gigs featuring Geri Allen on keyboards and Donald Harrison on alto with Richie Goods playing bass.
Their new album, Platinum, will be released on June 14, and features many of the original members of the band with guest spots by Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, and Killah Priest, among others, I Remember Clifford - Johnny Hammond - Rufus Toofus (Vinyl.
The group is also notable for its pioneering use of electronic instruments and effects. This band, along with James Brown are one of the key influences from funk music. As in funk music, the band often built a groove around a bassline; Paul Jackson's deceptively simple licks are frequently the bedrock of Headhunters material, as much as Harvey Mason's iconic inimitable drumming "Chameleon", the famous opening track of Head Hunters, provides a fine example of this, although in this case the main bassline is played by Hancock.
Also taken from funk music is the technique of building a complex groove by combining many small but carefully interlocking, syncopated contributions. While straightforward funk depends I Remember Clifford - Johnny Hammond - Rufus Toofus (Vinyl a snappy, danceable backbeat from the drummer, Mike Clark and Paul Jackson's innovative interplay danced in and around the groove motif, creating some advanced and complex rhythmic patterns that put them on the map and in the history books.
This is arguably best exemplified by the music on Thrust, particularly on the song "Actual Proof", Mike Clark has established himself as a true innovator of linear style drumming, incorporating jazz and funk. Clark and Jackson's intro to their song "God Make Me Funky" is one of the most sampled pieces in hip hop music. Early editions of the Headhunters were notable for the absence of a guitarist. All guitar-like parts were handled by Herbie Hancock on his first two albums with the group, with one exception: The "rhythm guitar" heard interacting with Hancock's synthesizer bass early in the track Chameleon is actually Paul Jackson playing in the upper register of the bass guitar, as pointed out by Steven F.
Pond in his book Head Hunters Although the Headhunters' albums were often belittled as "pop" by purist jazz critics at the time, it is now widely accepted that they were significantly influenced by, and made a significant contribution to, the "serious jazz" canon.
Their music featured extensive solo and group improvisation over chord progressions, just as in the jazz mainstream.
Most of the overtly jazz-influenced material comes in the form of solos from Herbie Hancock and Bennie Maupin. A strong connection to African music is evident, with the role of percussion hugely enhanced compared to mainstream jazz, and more extensive exploration of complex polyrhythms compared to most funk. The Headhunters are also notable for the unusually wide range of instruments they use. Hancock used a myriad of keyboards, from the staple Fender Rhodes electric piano to the Hohner clavinet, as well as being an early adopter of synthesizers, particularly instruments from ARP.
Maupin used bass, tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, bass clarinet and bass flute, and oddities such as the Saxello and Lyricon. Unusual choices like beer bottles and the Voice Bag also featured in their instrumentation. What's Goin On. Etiquetas: Charles Earland. Charles Earland - Street Themes Charles Earland came into his own at the tail-end of the great s wave of soul-jazz organists, gaining a large following and much airplay with a series of albums for the Prestige label.
While heavily indebted to Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff, Earland came armed with his own swinging, technically agile, light-textured sound on the keyboard and one of the best walking-bass pedal techniques in the business. Though not an innovative player in his field, Earland burned with the best of them when he was on. Earland actually started his musical experiences surreptitiously on his father's alto sax as a kid, and when he was in high school, he played baritone in a band that also featured fellow Philadelphians Pat Martino on guitar, Lew Tabackin on tenor, and yes, Frankie Avalon on trumpet.
After playing in the Temple University band, he toured as a tenor player with McGriff for three years, became infatuated with McGriff's organ playing, and started learning the Hammond B-3 at intermission breaks. When McGriff let him go, Earland switched to the organ permanently, forming a trio with Martino and drummer Bobby Durham.
He made his first recordings for Choice inthen joined Lou Donaldson for two years and two albums before being signed as a solo artist to Prestige. Earland's first album for Prestige, Black Talk! He recorded eight more albums for Prestige, one of which featured a young unknown Philadelphian named Grover Washington, Jr. Kendrick's death from sickle-cell anemia in left Earland desolate, and he stopped playing for awhile, but a gig at the Chickrick House on Chicago's South Side in the late '80s brought him out of his grief and back to the Hammond B Two excellent albums in the old soul-jazz groove for Milestone followed, and the '90s found him returning to the Muse label.
Earland died of heart failure on December 11,the morning after playing a gig in Kansas City; he was Ginell, Rovi. Joey Defrancesco - Legacy Extending the good vibes created out of their first pairing on the live recording Incredible! The two stellar and funky musicians have a great musical rapport and seem to really enjoy playing together. Fans of Incredible! The album has a heavy Latin sound with percussionists Ramon Banda and Jose "Joey" de Leon supplying additional timbales and conga rhythms respectively.
Also joining in this time around is special guest tenor saxophonist James Moody, who adds his fiery bop chops to "Jones'n for Elvin. He began playing piano at age four and quickly switched to his father's instrument, preferring the sound of the Hammond B-3 over the modern synthesizers that had become the dominant alternative to piano.
He began sitting in at his father's club gigs around age six; by age ten, he was performing paying gigs on the weekends and sitting in with artists like Jack McDuff and Groove Holmes. DeFrancesco continued to study through high school, drawing from Philadelphia's rich jazz organ heritage and the numerous veteran players who still found work on the city's club scene. He met Miles Davis on a local television show and impressed the trumpeter enough that DeFrancesco was invited on tour following his high-school graduation in After appearing on the well-received Live Around the World and Amandla albums, DeFrancesco scored a solo deal with Columbia and released his debut as a leader, All of Me, in Four more Columbia albums followed Where Were You?
His arrival presaged -- and, in fact, helped kick-start -- a renewal of interest in organ jazz of all stripes, and he remained one of the most versatile and advanced of the new breed of players; inspired by Davis, he even picked up the trumpet as a second instrument.
His appearance on 's After the Rain and his subsequent international tour with McLaughlin brought him to a whole new audience.
He spent the next few years working mostly as a sideman, however, I Remember Clifford - Johnny Hammond - Rufus Toofus (Vinyl returned to the studio under his own name inrecording All or Nothing at All for Big Mo; he also appeared with his father on All in the Family for High Note. The following year brought The Champ, a tribute to Jimmy Smith also on High Noteand a new record deal with Concord Jazz, which kicked off with the Mafia movie soundtrack tribute Goodfellas.
DeFrancesco finally teamed up with longtime hero Jimmy Smith for 's Incredible! In the meantime, he also continued to record sessions for High Note, including the sequel The Champ: Round 2 and another tribute to one of his influences, The Philadelphia Connection: A Tribute to Don Patterson He revolutionized the instrument, showing it could be creatively used in a jazz context and popularized in the process.
His Blue Note sessions from to were extremely influential and many, like 's Back at the Chicken Shack and 's The Sermon, are classics.
Smith turned the organ into almost an ensemble itself. He played walking bass lines and chordal accompaniment with his left hand, while solos were played with his right hand. A booming, funky presence punctuated every song, particularly the up-tempo cuts.
