By JR on 8:23 AM

Filed Under: , ,

Music fans Radd and Tall Black Guy spark insight in discussing the connection between life, happiness, creativity and music in a short interview. From his musical career in making heads nod to soulful music and positive messages, the art of producer TBG is definitely one who brings a new perception in the way we appreciate our lives through music listening.

"Berlin-based, New Zealand-born Noah Slee has enjoyed a remix by Tall Black Guy for his track "Rampant Wild Free" from debut EP, which was released in March.

TBG has taken the banger style track, originally produced by Ben Esser, and put a more laid-back, old-school hip-hop slant on it, removing the synths in favour of subtle, tinkling keys."

If your in the United Kingdom, catch Tall Black Guy performing on Saturday July 30th 2016 at the event Better Days & Groovement at the venue First Chop Brewing Arm in Manchester. Tickets available here at Skiddle.

Michael Jackson's "Thriller" Trumpeter Jerry Hey Interviews With Drummer JR Robinson

"Jerry Hey is a world class trumpeter, arranger and orchestrator whose career has spanned over four decades. From Dixon Illinois, born to a pianist mother and trombonist father, with older brothers who played trombone and tuba. He started playing at an early age on his older brother’s boy scout bugle. Jerry studied in high school with Charlie Geyer from the Chicago Symphony and then went to Indiana University where he also studied with William Adam. He connected with lifelong friend, Larry Hall and others who lured Jerry to Hawaii for gigs. After that, Larry Williams came and joined with Ken Wild, Bob Wilson, Kim Hutchcroft and Pauline to form The great band, Seawind.

Seawind moved to L.A. in 1976 and recorded two albums for CTI Records. The great Quincy Jones asked Jerry to play and arrange on Q’s record, “I Heard That”. That was the catalyst which put Jerry as Quincy’s “go to guy” . Next was the Brothers Johnson’s, BLAM which hit #1 on the R&B charts. Not only did the future six-time Grammy winner become Jones’ “first call” horn arranger on all his subsequent projects (George Benson’s Give Me the Night; Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad), but Hey became the go-to trumpeter and horn arranger in the industry, contributing to some of the biggest records of the subsequent decades including Chaka Khan’s “I Know You, I Live You,” Al Jarreau’s “Boogie Down,” Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove,” Toto’s “Rosanna,” Teena Marie’s “Behind the Groove,” Donna Summer’s “Bad Girls”.

Today, the Illinois native is still one of the most dependable musicians in the business, having worked on recent records from Mary J. Blige, Wilco, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, D.J. Cassidy and Dirty Loops." - John JR Robinson, drummer

Enjoy the interview plus a Spotify playlist which features the trumpet of Jerry Hey throughout the 1970's, a collection of music which spans Soul, R&B, Jazz Fusion, Disco, Brazilian, Rock and more.

Aaron Neville Delivers Soul Music Powerful Enough To "Make Your Momma Cry"

By JR on 6:46 PM

Filed Under: ,

"Neville's past several solo albums have read as loving markers of the music that's contributed to his formation: 2006's Bring It On Home was a collection of soul classics, 2010's I Know I've Been Changed a gospel hymnbook, 2013's My True Story a dedication to doo-wop and R&B vocal groups. But Apache — the first album he's primarily written himself — is a fresh, confident statement of who Neville is now. It nicely captures and resolves the duality that hangs around him: He's known in his solo career for heartrending ballads, but in his work with Allen Toussaint and with his brothers Art, Charles and Cyril for hard-driving funk. He's a man whose formidable figure and rocky past might come as a surprise once you've heard that gold-filigree voice." - NPR
