Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter

FUNK, FUNK, FUNK, FUNK ME UP

I want to share this note with yall from one of our readers (I don't think that he would mind one bit...

BROTHERMAN - I knew there was some real credence to the depth of your knowledge as regards our music and you need no validation. Upon checking your intro to the Fatback Band and shout-out to the Roosevelt High Class of '73 and making mention of the Polish Hall in Hempstead. I can unequivovally say! "Bob, you are the Mo-Tap of SJs (slow jams) and Funk, i.e., Classical Black Music.

No doubt you've experienced "Strong Island-" My day: The Celebrity Club, Paraglide, The Rainbow, Stereo Lounge and groups such as (Gene Johnson, Gail Houston, Ms Paulin) of "Thats What Boys are Made Off," fame; Bobby and George Coleman of the Blenders, Andy Winslow and the Majestics. Can't forget Jimmy Kessler and The Leo Price Band. As you are the self acclaimed master of slow wine! What about the gigs in the projects (Laurel Ave) and others of basement lore.

--Ben of Tampa Bay (formerly of Hempstead)

P.S. Keep the juices flowing - Really dig your interviews


Now of course I love getting email like this, and I wish that more of you would write in more often. However I am posting it here because I know that when I say things like "there used to be 1,001 Funk Bands" to younger people or to people in other parts of the world, they don't belive me....lol

Without getting too much on a "nostalgia tip", there really used to be a different culture that existed when i waqs a teenager. It was a culture that I was a part of and this is a person from the same neighborhood that I have never met, who lived in the same area and shared the same exact "places and spaces" that I did. This has been a VERY tough year for many of us, for a wide variety of reasons. And the reality is that for many of us, 2009 promises to be even worse.

It goes without saying that as the year winds down, we have a great reason to forget all about the existance of 2008 and wish it a VERY fond farewell.

AND I PLAN TO DO EXACTLY THAT WITH ONE OF THE FUNKIEST BANDS IN ALL OF THE LAND: THE FATBACK BAND.

And if you can feel what I'm talkin about, you will be right there with me, if you are going to be within 100 miles of NYC on December 27th. I dunno about yall, but I need a BLAST OF SOME REAL FUNK MUSIC...

Now I must ask you a SERIOUS QUESTION

(AND I WANT YOU TO BE HONEST WITH YOURSELVES)

Can YOU really afford to go out on New Years Eve this year?

(I can't)

So instead I am going to, get nostalgic....
& KISS 2008 GOODBYE WITH THE LEGENDARY FATBACK BAND

Album Review: Fatback Band Live In Tokyo
(Funk)

Fatback Band Live In TokyoJust in case a few of yall out there might have some doubt if THE FATBACK BAND can "still do it like they used to", I would like yall to read the following review of the Fatback Band's LIVE 2005 release, written by "Enorman." And if this doesn't convince you (then just turn in your damn FUNK BADGES)

I LIVED IN JAPAN for 2 years back in the late 70's while stationed at a Navy Base in Yokosuka Japan. So I would like to think that I went to enough concerts to know how the Japanese respond to great American musical genius no matter what the genre. I have seen the Herbie Hancock VSOP tour there also the Emotions and quite a few other shows but I wish I had been there in 2006 when one of the enduring Funk Bands of all time the Fatback Band laid down it's own brand of Soul Cooking that rivals all the other legendary Funk Congregations.

On this just released disc that is sure to bring back memories of your first smoke, your wildest night, that special first girl or guy or the first time you got a whiff of that Fatback it will make you remember the Funk! Percussionist and leader Bill Curtis heads this always flamboyant in their sound defiantly brilliant assembly of musicians. Wiki Wacking their way through fatback funk classics in a way that is more party band then concert band you want to dance from the first cut Funk Backin to the last maybe the most famous of their tune "I Like the Girls" they show that from soul to funk to jazz they can turn a dance floor into something a kin to a soul food kitchen bringing that same ambiance with all the flavors of funk flowing in the air just like when you are getting ready to do a Black Family reunion..

If for some reason you have fooled yourself that the funk is not as important or as funky as it used to be you need to hear this like i did the first time loud and sober, because this music is just as funk sober as it was when you had to have a toke. Doesn't matter how you hear the next time it will already be one of the favorite Cd's! It's not just funky it is fun, fun, fun! The CD includes mega hit " Money got to get my hands on some" "Spanish Hustle", "Backstrokin" , "Bus Stop", "keep on steppin", "Yum Yum", and if you notice they leave off the g's on every word that should end in "ing" and that it self is funky to me! The sax work by Edward Jackson is Superb and so are the background vocals and Bill Curtis's back beats. On the CD it list Bob James as the keyboardist, don't know if it is Bob James of
"Heads and Touchdown" but it sounds like it might be. For all these reasons and more you need to get Fatback live in Tokyo cause as we say at the Friday night fish fry: Greasy is Good! And this CD is sho nuff Greasy!!
