Prelude to some Jazz, Funk, Blues, R&B and Zydeco…A Musical Gumbo

Congo Square was the only place in America where African slaves were allowed to market goods, socialize, and participate in drumming, music making, and dance in the 1700s-1800s, establishing the roots of American music. Although the historic use of the site predates jazz, it is significant because of the role the square played in New Orleans’ musical heritage and as a symbol of the early African-American contributions to the origins of jazz and other musical forms. Hi, I’m Jeff Duperon your host for a three hour journey of musical delights showcasing the music of New Orleans and the surrounding Region. Welcome…to Congo Square on listener-supported…TaintRadio.

FreeWorldNetworkRadio-X – 07/30/2009

So far my favorite concert of the summer: Tuesday night i went to see and hear Tower Of Power put a hurtin’ on the stage at City Winery in NYC! City Winery (generic names are the trend right now…you know the deal.. no hype leaves something to be desired) is a very beautiful room themed of dark wood&iron sort of like a fancy wine cellar and has fine food and spirits I might add… it is a place you can bring the whole family and apparently is owned by Michael Dorf of Knitting Factory fame. I got home from the show around 1:30am and by 2:42am I still couldn’t settle down. I just wanted to pll out all the Tower Of Power CDs or vynyl I have and play it loud! Beside being in top form, Tower Of Power is in their 41st year and they played as if they were in their 2nd year of existence with something to prove. As many of you know, this band has nothing to prove to anyone… they’ve done that already by influencing a world of musicians and are part of a very special time for creation in popular American music -the late 1960′s and 1970′s. It was a crazy tight and funky set featuring founding members, leader- Emilio Castilio on tenor sax&vocals, Stephen “Doc” Kupka- Baritone sax&vocals, Francis “Rocco” Prestia-Bass, and David Garibaldi-Drums! The new singer -Larry Bragg has a clear and expressive tenor voice that cuts through all the syncopation of T.O.P.’s unique rhythm section with ease. He clearly has a voice of his own but really gets what T.O.P. is about. You can hear glimpses of the great and former lead vocalist Lenny Williams in him of course… I mean how could one not bring that to the table for anyone ready to digest Tower Of Power? I mean outside the horns and rhythm section, Lenny’s voice became just as much a signature of the band as the other components to the point where one might imagine him to be there while knowing he left the band after only a 2 and 1/2 year stint (1972-74)! A big impact Lenny made and obviously some big shoes to fill for anyone not to slight the rest of the band by NO MEANS… So I give much props to Larry Bragg, because he did his thing in a world where singers come a dime-a dozen. But that wasn’t it, former band member and lead tenor sax soloist – Lenny Pickett joined the posse for some cameo stage time and exceptional solos! Come on now, it just doesn’t get much better for a TOP fan after 40 years… Lenny Pickett blew his horn ’til it literally whistled elongated tones reminiscent of the late-great St. Clair Pinckney (The JB’s)- he was blazing! Then one of my favorite trumpeters appears as special guest sololist – Mr. James Zollar! Yo!!! Mr. Zollar (who I met while working with Atiba Wilson) was killin’! He soloed on “You’re Still A Young Man” beautifully and later (in the 2nd set which I was so fortunate and grateful to be around for – thanks Jared & Mr. Dorf) he and Lenny blew the audience away with killer solos on “What Is Hip”! Oh, btw, the fact that in the middle of their sets they performed a mini-tribute to James Brown didn’t help to calm things down – they flat out tore up “It’s A New Day” and “There It Is”!
All I can say is… it is almost 3am now and I still can’t settle down. It felt as though it was a new sound, yeah, just that fresh it was. Pure hotness! I guess you realize I’ve been funktified again… which isn’t hard for me to be since that’s what I’m pretty much about… so bare with me if I roll with some back-to-back funk in this show.
I deliberately do not play stuff back-to-back because it would stifle may various tastes and be just self gratifying ALL THE TIME. Even one’s own gratification can become boring to the gratified one. That being said, one day I’ll have to do a funk special and trust that T.O.P. will be somewhere at the top of the list along with other horn-based soul/funk and afro-caribbean funk bands like Mandril, The JB’s, The Beginning of the End, Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns, Maceo & The Macks, Kool & The Gang, The Brecker Bros (r.i.p. Michael Brecker), Earth, Wind&Fire, Blood Sweat&Tears, Parliament, the Ohio Players, Fishbone and others… but one thing I found… I still be diggin’ on James Brown…!

As a matter of fact and in keeping within the format of what I do: I have some new funk from the artist- Dayton Flic and something I just picked up after meeting a band I enjoyed in Philadelphia known as the Ross Brown Project, so that’s how we’ll start off this set. Enjoy. – Bruce

Van Morrison’s contractual obligation album

Why has it taken me so long to discover the album Van Morrison recorded to get out of his contract with Bang Records? Songs like “Want a Danish,” “Ringworm” and “Blow In Your Nose” make it one of the great ‘fuck you’s’ in rock history:

In order to fulfill his obligation to his early solo label Bang Records, Van Morrison sat down in 1967 or so and cranked out 31 songs on the spot, on topics ranging from ringworm to wanting a danish, to hating his record label and a guy named George. Make sure you get past the first few tunes – it takes him a few to get cooking.

[via this Metafilter thread about this fun linguistic analysis of a Morrison audience insult (marred only by the linguist's inexplicable inability to appreciate Morrison's musical genius)]
