NEW YEARS EVE….INTERVIEWs from East to West Featured PODCAST w/ Matthew Good

Today we at greenarrowradio, were fortunate enough to revisit with Playas and Hata ceo Hota. He is a local guy on the fringe of making a hit in the urban entertainment industy. http://broodmoor.com/

We reflected w/theblog-master himelf Theron from thought mechanics. He has had an eventful 2005 as well and he led us to a new voice/mind on greenarrowradio, Mr. Matthew Good. You know him from the music world, but he is also a web-designer and blog captain himself. You can check out both of their work on our blogroll. Listen to the podcast now.

Matthew Good: Audio of Being

A friend of mine is collaborating with his favorite musician…on a web designing adventure….which brought me to this cd. With the release of IN A COMA, Matthew Good’s recent best of release….I went to a comfort zone.

This album is one of those rare treats. Solid from top to bottom. Like a perfect cup of morning coffee, the blend of mellow acoustic and ramming electric riffs makes it a sure repeat on the sound system. It travels well on any ride and is a good companion in a snowstorm for sure….

Take a reminder listen to this album if you forgot about it, if you have yet to uncover tis gem….take my advice and check it out.

Morcheeba: The The Antidote

I had such an odd mix of feelings when I found out Morcheeba had a new cd. I was ready for it, I planted myself firmly ready to go…but, that soon ended when I got this cd and realized something was VERY wrong. SKYE is gone!!!! There is a new vocalist who just DOESN’T do it for me.. Skyesound brought the soul to Morcheeba, and her airy, seductive vocals were a HUGE part of what made this band so incredible. Former Noonday Underground member Daisey Martey, a powerfully voiced singer who now sits in the lead position. There is something too different, but maybe change is just difficult for my ears. I like the fact that I can catch a hint of the Velvet Underground throughout this release…..I will give it more chances….

Dr. John: The Best of the Parlophone Years

This disc pulls from the four albums Dr. John recorded for the British Parlophone label from 1997 to 2004 (released in the United States on Blue Note and Virgin). In the several decades since his popular emergence as the Night Tripper he’s become one of the respected men of New Orleans music. These 17 songs show him to be drawing from deep Crescent City traditions, as well as R&B, jazz, swing, balladry. The tunes also showcase his work with a range of notable guests (from Paul Weller to Randy Newman to Mavis Staples). These artist prove just how broad their shared influences are. Dr. John truly is a regular guy with a shadow that looms large over New Orleans.

Walter “Wolfman” Washington: Blue Moon Risin’

Walter is a long-time favorite in New Orleans, and he has done some great work, but he really outdid himself here. The horn section in “Blue Moon Rising” has that majestic feel of Coltrane’s “Blue Trane”, and his melody line in that song is a downward walk down the stairs of longing like no other melody line I have heard in a blues song – deliberate, pensive, refraining from the acrobatic vocal loop-de-loops of modern R&B / soul. His voice can be both smooth like a crooner and tormented like a screamer. Songs like “Stop and think” and “Glasshouse” left me hitting repeat many times after the first listen, and true to his birthplace, Walter writes lyrics that not only *mean* something (are you listening, pop world?) but also decry the troubles of this world without becoming larmoyant. If you don’t listen to the lyrics, you might think “He Will See Us Through” is from Prince’s Purple Rain rather than a wonderfully soulful, hopeful, and danceable *gospel* addressing someone who has lost a loved one. When the going gets tough in New Orleans, people go dancing, so the same music that makes your foot tap also makes your heart cry and open up. (Maybe we should build better levees instead of partying – get to that next life.)

Charlie Hunter, Bobby Previte W/ DJ: LOGIC LONGITUDE

This is the second installment in the collaboration between Hunter (master of the 8-string guitar ) and Previte (electronic and acoustic drum virtuoso). This time around the rotating third member slot is filled by turntable wizard DJ Logic. Together they’ve turned up the heat, further progressing their sound into a more aggressive mix of funk, jazz, and jam band-style rock.
Guest DJ Logic’s messing around with turntablism allows Previte & Hunter to ride free in continuous sound hints and sparkling solos. Previte is powerfull and heavy-beating on acoustic drum; Hunter turns distorsion on and plays lots of dramatically-bare riffs for high moments of interplay.
Less ‘jazz-like’ than Latitude, maybe difficult to listen to for predictability-bound ears, but fresh and stimulating if you approach music by the what-could-it become.
Take the time to check the whole album out and you won’t be disappointed.

Mr. G reccomends ****

Daby Balde: Introduction to Daby Balde

Daby Balde is one of Senegal’s best-kept musical secrets, long celebrated at home and now filtering onto the international scene. His amazing arrangements are based on his Fula traditions from the south of the country and feature the fiddle, accordion and flute accompanied by the more familiar West African sounds of the kora, acoustic guitar and percussion. With handsomely rich and beautiful melodies, captivating vocals and a repertoire that ranges from euphoric to melancholic, Daby Balde is a West African star on the rise.

Horace X: Strategy

Horace X takes it to the other end of the spectrum, pushing the craze factor to 10, painting band members in day-glow paint and putting onoutrageous live show. This album as well as the 2003 release, SACKBUTT, skillfully weave (among other things) dancehall rants, punk rock, Middle Eastern melodies, Irish fiddle, funky bass, live drumming, strange vocal samples and Balkan music into a non-stop dance party. They have a sound that defies description–“global fusion” just doesn’t quite do them justice
