1. Quickie CD Reviews: Hugh Masakela, Cassius White, George Duke, Joe Quartermaine, Tim Terry, Leela James, Bee Note, King Powell, Paul Jackson 


Cassius White

Cassius White - From The Inside Out
(Soul/Jazz)


When I first met Philadelphian Cassius White he described his new instrumental CD as "Smooth Jazz". I can certainly understand why he did that. After all I understand that from a marketing perspective, damn near anyone who has an instrumental album has to label it as "smooth jazz" in order to have any hope whatsoever of getting commercial airplay in the year 2005. However upon closer inspection and some serious listening, it's obvious to me that it's quite a bit more than the overused and poorly understood phrase "smooth jazz". As I listened to the music during my daily commute another overused and poorly understood phrase comes to mind...."OLD SCHOOL". Not "old school" in the Tom Joyner sense. But "old school" from the real side. As I drive along in my car listening, the music forces my mind to drift back to the 1970's to a time when driving a different car ("69 duce & a quarter"....lol), with the top down, speakers blasting the cool sounds of CTI as I was cruising around the streets in ghetto neighborhoods of cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, etc. looking for god knows what. That's what this album makes me think of...

CASSIUS WHITE: SMOOTH JAZZ THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE

Hugh Masakela - Revival
(Jazz/Pop)


I truly despise the term "world music". Whenever I hear it makes me think of things like colonial empires and the days when small european countries exerted an "iron rule" over the countries and people of the world of color. The term "world music" is the recording industry's way of saying "non american, non european, non white music that we like". Unfortunately this term, despite it's implications of colonialism is probably what you will have to look for if you are trying to find the new CD by Hugh Masakela called "Revival" in your local "wreckastow". And this indeed is an album that you should look for This is a vocal/instrumental jazz album with at least one song that could be a pop hit song if it were to get enough airplay (Woman of the Sun). So what we really have here is a typical Hugh Masakela album, full of slammin funky jazz and pop songs that are actually mainstream enough to make the R&B charts

Sir Joe Quarterman and Free Soul - They Want Funky Music
(Funk/Classic Soul)


Back in 1969 (I think?) Sir Joe Quarterman and Free Soul rocked the Soul music charts with what was probably the quintessential Black anti war/social consciousness song done to that point in time. I'm sure that yall remember "So Much Trouble In My Mind"? That song was historic enough (I always wondered if the song influenced Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On"?) that if you go to any "oldies but goodies party" even today, you are likely to hear that song being played. Well Sir Joe Quarterman and Free Soul are back with a brand new CD and it's called "They Want Funky Music" and it's a badd slama jama. This album doesn't make any pretenses whatsoever. It truly sounds like a "retro album", nothing "new" here at all, this is an album of 100 percent pure classic soul/funk. In fact the best way I could describe this album is that if you heard it and didn't know what it was, you might just mistakenly think that it was the electric southern fried funk of Johnny "Guitar" Watson. That is with the exception of one song...."I Want A Love I Can Wallow In", which sounds like doo wop influenced "east coast grind" material.

The Tim Terry Experience
(Soul/Nu Soul/Funk/Memphis Soul)


Close your eyes for a moment and imagine that the legacy of the STAX record company had not been appropriated by John Belushi and Dan Ackyrod, but instead had continued thru the 70's, 80's, 90's right up to 2005 and been entrusted in the stewardship of people who understood that the purpose of the record company was not to mimic (in whiteface) what the music sounded like in 1969. Assume for a moment that the people running things understood that the music of STAX in 2005 should be the same as the music of STAX in 1965. And that is a reflection of what current everyday life is like for Black people, done in a commercial pop music mode, with a little bit of FUNK and a whole lotta BBQ sauce & fatback thrown into the mix. Well if you were to wake up from this dream, you might just hear the music of Tim Terry playing in the background.

Leela James - A Change is Gonna Come
(Southern Soul/Slow Jams)


Imagine if a major label decided that it would be in their best interests to hire a crack production team to take a young Black woman out of South Central Los Angeles with a POWERFUL set of lungs and create a piece of art that takes you back to the time when singers like Carla Thomas, Betty Wright, Mavis Staples and others ruled the charts? Now imagine this recording being created back in 2003 and sitting on the shelf till now? Do you like your slow jams dripping with a mixture of erotic love juices and BBQ sauce made for dipping your "biscuit" into? Well if u do (like I do) then you might just like this CD, scheduled for a June release.

Bee Note - Bee Note
(Funk/Dance/Slow Jams)


This album is truly a unique package. The all star aggregation of artists on this album working under the umbrella of "Bee Note" includes Patrice Rushen, Philip Ingram, Kevin Toney, Dorian Holly, Tony Lewis, Larry Ball, Wayne Vaughn, Mumjungo Jackson, Alfonso Jones, Kevin Johnson. So what you have here is Patrice Rushen with members of Switch, Blackbyrds, Slave, Ohio Players, Zapp, Dynasty, Sun and Slave along with former background singers for Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Micheal Jackson (whew.... lol). So what you have here is essentially an extremely diverse soul/funk/dance album made in 1999 that's worth a serious listen right now. I think that the funk cuts are truly SLAMMIN and so will you when I play them for you on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio. The ballads are top flight original pop songs that sound like they could easily appear on albums by Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Micheal Jackson. This album may have been recorded 6 years ago, but I guarantee you that it will still sound fresh 6 years from now.

King Powell - King Powell
(Jazz/Pop/Standards)


At first blush this album sounds like something that you might hear playing on the stereo of a 50 year old man. As I turn around and look at my birth certificate and notice that I have recently turned 48 it gives me cause to pause at that statement. Yes indeed the "baby boomers" (including myself) are growing up and it seems that standards of the past are becoming more and more popular. Now in my case it goes just a little beyond just being an "aging baby boomer", the reality is that one of my "dirty little secrets" has been that I have always been a big fan of this type of music. First starting with my introduction to the music of Billy Holiday via the soundtrack of the movie "Lady Sings the Blues", then later in the 1980's when I purchased the Linda Ronstat trio of standards albums, that she recorded backed by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, in the mid 1990's with what is in my humble opinion the last great album by the Temptations called "For Lovers Only", right up to the 2004 release of the "Dana Owens Album" by Queen Latifah, I have pretty much always dug this type of music regardless of how old I am. The self titled CD "King Powell" is at the same time "lizard lounge music" and romantic music that certain brotha might put on as a part of a larger exercise in "seduction". The duo of Cathryn King and Patou Powell do a fantastic job of singing these classic songs accompanied only bass, piano and drums in a "sparse" mix that has actually been one of my secret pleasures since I first got it a few months ago. Of course my favorite song on the album is "Fever", featuring the sultry and seductive voice of Cathryn King. This CD is highly recommended for your Saturday night after midnight mix of music (even if you aren't a member of the "baby boom generation").

George Duke - Duke
(Jazz/Pop/Funk)


George Duke is an artist who I truly love, however he has also been a disappointment to me from time to time. As we all know, he is one of the FUNK MASTERS that sometimes allows his music has a tendency to drift off into "elevator music territory". He avoids doing that with this CD and he uses artists like Ndugu Chancellor Airto and Sheila E to help out. This is a funky album and it has a few twists (for example he even samples the voice of Chuck D.... lol). Another surprise is his cover version of Stevie Wonder's "Superwoman", it's so damn cool that I suspect that the "neo soul" crowd would eat it up. The song "Hybrids" sounds like it could have come off of a Miles Davis CD. There are many strong songs here that could easily be hits in various radio genres, but that matters little to me. It's going to be a hit record in my back yard this summer, so if you come over to my house, don't expect to leave without hearing this album at least once.

Paul Jackson - Funk On A Stick
(Stone Cold Booyah Tribe Natural Born Funk)


This album is sooo STANK that I had to go and find my close pin and place it over my nose. I guess that my expectations were nothing less from one of the founding member of the Headhunters under Herbie Hancock. I saw Paul Jackson as part of the Headhunters back in 1974 in what was the greatest funk concert I have ever seen (Herbie Hancock/Miles Davis). There isn't much more that I can write about this FUNK BOMB, but I guess I have to. It sounds to me like Return To Forever/Headhunters with James Brown, Oscar Brown and Chuck Brown speaking dat secret "Booyah Tribe Language" on vocals!!! (how's dat for a description???) Right now I am listening to it in my headphones as I type with the volume turned up to "ear bleed level". Are you a funk music fan???? (Then this CD is essential for you to own) Don't look for it anywhere on commercial radio, Clear Channel, Infinity & Cathy Hughes won't allow you to listen to it there. However I do know of one place you will be able to hear it and that is on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio

stay tuned....

3. Commentary: Album Covers?


Soul-Patrol Newsletter Anybody here remember LP covers??? Whatever happened to them and why should we care about them here in the year 2005? Well they "evolved"....

It speaks to the continuing dumbing down of the society. When I'm at my dad's house I enjoy looking thru his wonderful collection of vintage UNSCRATCHED Jazz albums from the 1950's.(at last I'm old enough to touch them) While the artwork of the era was simplistic I'm always struck by the liner notes. The notes were written in a manner that assumed the reader was intelligent and educated. These albums were released in a decade when much of the country had not even completed high school yet the information in the liner notes was presented on the highest level just like the music inside the cover.

In the 1960's and especially the 1970's the artwork on the album covers greatly improved. Liner notes varied but were often well written. Although I might have been in junior high school they still addressed me as if I were a thinking and reasonably educated person. Today the drop out rate for African Americans is approaching what it was in the 1950's. The drop out rate for urban white ethnics is following at an alarming rate. The drop out rate for Latinos is as high in the inner city as it is in rural communities and the drop rate for rural whites threatens to exceed every demographic in the country if current trends continue. Yet unlike the under educated 1950's the recording industry of the butt-hole new century neither challenges the consumer academically with liner notes or artistically with packaging artwork. It instead meets the consumer where they are. So as the "Jerry Springer" generation marches backwards the recording industry will be right there to profit. Rarely!
Requiring that anyone think or be inspired by anything visually, intellectually or God forbid MUSICALLY!!

Just let me download the file and gimme the sampled beat.

4. Online Listening Party: Skip Martin's Miles High (Hosted By Skip Martin of Kool & the Gang/Dazz Band)


Skip Martin - Miles High
The release of Skip Martin's (of Kool & the Gang/Dazz Band) new INDEPENDENT jazz CD called "Miles High" is an important release for Black music. First and foremost it's a tribute to Miles Davis, one of the key inspirations for the existence of the Soul-Patrol website. Secondly it's a major move by a popular singer into a genre that he is not well known in and there aren't many singers these days that will pick up an instrument and play it as a bandleader. It's sitting at #12 right now so lots of folks are listening. Skip's obviously bucking several trends and we think he is going to be successful.

Here is some background, taken from Skip's website….

The idea of Skip Martin's first solo jazz project was pure and simple - "it was just time".
With a total of 26 album releases as lead vocalist with Dazz Band, Kool & the Gang and his own solo projects, Skip wanted to record a project where he did his 'singing' through his trumpet. "I've recorded on both groups in the horn section but never as a solo instrument" stated Skip.

The result is 'Miles High' filled with hip, cool, funky, smooth jazz grooves. "You'll definitely come away ... with ... a sense of what Miles might be doing musically if he were still with us." (Scott O'Brien for smoothjazz.com).

'Are You Ready' the debut single, which features Skip on trumpet and vocals is "...a laid back blend of classic styles. If Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd were in the same band they would open their set with this tune..." (Gene Harris, Jr., MBA and Cat Lee for GrooveDoctorsRadio.com).

Ronnie Laws appears on sax on the 'Smooth Sailing' track in a beautiful trumpet and sax duet - ranging from sultry grooves to profound narratives.

'Miles High', the title cut, a tribute to Miles Davis written the night Miles died, clearly shows an insightful range of diverse influences from the modern jazz era known as the Miles Years. "...jazz that can appeal to the novice and seasoned listener..." (Enorman for soul-patrol.net.radio).

The album also includes the first recordings of spoken word poet Bronze Paragon on the tracks 'Are You Ready' (Spoken Word) and 'Apropos' (Spoken Word) - which just make you sit up and listen .

"I'm very excited about this project" admits Skip Martin. "It took 2 years in the making with a few starts and stops but the journey was well worth the time".

Join us on Saturday April 23 at 10 pm est in the Soul-Patrol chat room (www.soul-patrol.com/chat) as Skip hosts while we listen to his new CD. As we listen to MILES HIGH, Skip Martin will answer your questions about the Miles High CD as well as your questions about the past, present and future of his career with Kool & the Gang and the Dazz Band.

5. Soul-Patrol.Net Radio: Mid April Rankings


Soul-Patrol RadioThese numbers are compiled from our server logs. They are a relative ranking of shows on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio and are an indicator of relative popularity of the audio programming which appears on the site at any given point in time. Nothing more. Nothing less

- NEW MUSIC RULES THE DAY
(what can I say???)

The top 40 includes 14 shows that are focused on new music (1, 2, 3, 5, 12, 18, 22, 27, 28, 33, 34, 36, 38, 39)

- The popularity of our "Slow Jams 2005" show (#1) is proof positive that artists like Alison Crocket, Unified Tribe, Barbara Mason, Martha Redbone, Byron Woods, Chi-Lites, RioSoul, Etta James could co-exist on the same radio station.
(ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION CATHY HUGHES????)

- The release of Victor Wooten's new CD ("Soul Circus)
will pose an interesting (but nice) problem for us. To solve that problem we are going to incorporate his new CD into his existing link (#2 on this survey), so that yall will get a Victor Wooten "Double Play" :)

- Julie Dexter (#3), Cooly's Hot Box (#33), Krush (#36) all bear watching because they represent the concept of "back to the future".10 years from now these artists will still be around and playing music that is consistent with the historical legacy of Black music. And they will be doing so long after many of those original artists have departed from this earth. This is what we mean by "extending the legacy". The fact that so many folks on Soul-Patrol are listening to these artist is a healthy sign for the future.

- Soul-Patrol Jazz (#28 & #34 respectively) shows that the programming tactics of the "smooth jazz radio stations" may well be starting to wear thin. People are tired of "whitebread jazz". They want the REAL thing and they want it from artists like Queen Latifah, Marlon Saunders, D-Erania, Eloise Laws, Bobbi Humphrey, Kne-O'Chaw Hampton, Monnette Sudler, Phillip Bailey, Dale Fieldler, Jonathan Butler, D-Erania, Leroy K. Wofford, Digable Planets. THESE ARTISTS KNOW THAT JAZZ ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE MUSIC THAT PUTS YOU TO SLEEP. And the proof is in the pudding because folks that visit our site are listening to it in BIG NUMBERS

- And the NEW MUSIC keeps on coming.
Look for the appearance of more NEW MUSIC on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio from artists like Will Wheaton, Kashif, John Hickey, Joe Quartermaine & Free Soul, Like So, Devoted Spirits, Billy Jones Bluz, Dexter Wansel, Angela Johnson, Brian McKnight, Unifics, George Duke, Cassius White, Terry Johnson/Flamingos, Stevie Wonder (and many others very soon)

Anyhow...
Here is the Top 40 so far for the month of April/2005.
