LOS 300




Más info y entradas en

El trio granadino formado por Manuel Collados, Zeke Olmo y Jimi García, vuelve con los guantes puestos al cuadrilátero para lanzar 13 golpes canallas a la música latina, al swing y al estandarizado jazz funk en el elegante “The Fighting Kangaroo”, su nuevo LP.

Tras su sorprendente primer album “The Monkey Howler Times”, con el cual irrumpieron en la escena de la música negra, el jazz y el movimiento tropical, pasando por festivales como Weekend Beach, Imagina Funk o Sonidos Líquidos, llamaron la atención de los espectadores por su auténtica forma de tocar a base de loops orgánicos, sonando en escena como si fueran trescientos músicos, de ahí su nombre de pila. Ahora, Los 300, regresan con “The Fighting Kangaroo”, un disco más festivo y maduro, compuesto por 13 ganchos musicales cada cual con su intensidad que dejarán KO al oyente.

Lettuce - Witches Stew: A Tribute to Miles Davis (2017)

Since 1992, Lettuce have kept a very distinct strand of festival funk alive, but with their newest outing, Witches Stew, the band veers into uncharted cerebral territory. Recorded live at the Catskill Chill festival in Lakewood, Pa., Witches Stew pays tribute to jazz icon Miles Davis with a reimagining of seven Davis originals.

The centerpiece of LP is a full recreation of his acclaimed fusion record In A Silent Way, and the band’s Berklee education shine through as they swing and groove through these bold musical abstractions. In A Silent Way is considered by many to be Davis’ greatest creative advancement. Rock critic Lester Bangs called it “transcendental new music” that gleefully “flushes categories away.”

And in many ways, the members of Lettuce strive to do the same on this LP. Sure, it’s a bold undertaking, but the band’s all-star roster definitely has the chops (guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, drummer Adam Deitch, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, vocalist-keyboardist Nigel Hall, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis and trumpeter Eric Bloom). Additionally, Witches Stew advances Lettuce’s prior forays into sonic experimentation, and proves that resting on their laurels is not an option.

Most tracks bust open to surpass the 10-minute mark, and needless to say the horn section thrives. There are some bite-sized grooves too, namely the funky, three and a half minute “Black Satin.” However, Lettuce are at their best when raw and unhinged, pushing their limits to honor a legend.
