Although he has been involved in many musical projects, the album with the most legs seems to be his work with John Medeski, Lunar Crush. He is associate professor of guitar at Berklee School of Music, as well as a jazz “FUZE”ion guitar visionary.
In 1994 David, in collaboration with keyboardist John Medeski of Medeski Martin & Wood, woke up the sleeping jazz fusion world with a landmark CD, Lunar Crush chosen by Guitar Playerâ€™s 30th Anniversary Edition as a â€œDisc of Destinyâ€ â€“ in Guitar Playerâ€™s estimation, one of the most influential albums of the last thirty years. A funky, freaky party, Lunar Crush was a wild 90â€™s tribute to Tony Williamâ€™s groundbreaking early-fusion band â€œLifetimeâ€. Fuzeâ€™s signature palette of otherworldly guitar sounds and enormous chops received astonished accolades from critics and fans alike and landed him on the cover of Guitar Player as a trailblazer who could â€œchange the way you play!â€ In 1994 David became the original guitar player in Meshell NdegÃ©Ocelloâ€™s debut band and is prominently featured on her first two Grammy-nominated CDâ€™s.

A backwoods country boy surfer whose surfing jaunts took him around the world long before music did, Mofroâ€™s JJ Grey embraces the title of “redneck” yet defies any of the negative stereotypes it evokes. Heâ€™s a multi-instrumentalist (voice, guitar, piano, harmonica, bass and drums) or as he says â€œI play just good enough to pull off a song or two.â€ As a lyricist and songwriter he is primarily a storyteller, trying in his own way to carry on the oral tradition. J.J. still resides on his grandparent’s old chicken farm where he and his family continue the tradition by farming organic vegetables.

What a nice guy. We spoke of upcoming “in the studio” time, tours and a little bit about DAD. Take a listen to the conversation and you will learn a lot about Jordan including his work with Notorious B.I.G…I know, I am as suprised as you. I hope to keep in contact with Jordan and perhaps try to get him and whomever he gets onboard for the upcoming tour, to visit this area. Until then visit him here at his website.

We had a bad connection, as I believe Mr. Allen was at work on his cell. Either way, I certainly appreciate the time he took to chat and as always, he is a musician looking out for the others. We learn thru this interview that a re-mix of Return the Gift will be out in May.

That’s right, I chatted with G-Love about the bands release-to-be in August. We spoke about his 76ers and my Celtics. We put away dishes and chilled out talkin’ about hip hop blues. We got on the subject of his collaborating with one of his influences Mr. John Hammond, who we spoke to hear a few weeks back. As you would expect….G-Love is a cool cat and one can only imagine if John Hammond will dip his toes into the hip hop blues world that G-love calls his own.
This is one of the coolest conversations I have been a part of. G Love and I just chillin’. He’s a good multi-tasker…Seriously, the musical sponge really does put the dishes away…and minds his 4 year old as well.

I had the incredible fortune to speak with John Hammond jr. Check it out and see how much John and I have in common with our musical tastes. Also, some grammy award winning blues artist is picking UCONN to go all the way. Listen in.
John is a real soft telephone talker, so make sure your volume is up at the right notch. ENJOY!!
