FeelinAlright-back

Reviews:
By Stephen Cook (AMG):
While it fits in with the glut of Top 40 boogaloo efforts that record companies pressured jazz artists to record in the late '60s and early '70s, Mongo Santamaria's Feelin' Alright does offer a more than decent program of covers ranging from Motown to "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." Santamaria and band spike the even-keeled, groove-heavy parade of horns, Latin percussion, and rolling basslines with tasty trumpet and saxophone solos and manage to recast most of these rock and soul hits as engaging and infectious Latin-a-go-go jams. Like Willie Bobo, Santamaria does a fine job of straddling the fence between soulful interpretation and limp mood music. And though attempts at reforming rock material like Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" fall a bit short, jazz-friendly tracks like "On Broadway" come out sounding worthy of Santamaria's talent. The band's lively rendition of the title track and sophisticated takes on the Sam & Dave hit "Hold On, I'm Coming" and Jimmy Webb's perennial "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" further maintain the high standard. Although a fun record to listen to, Feelin' Alright should be passed over by newcomers for more viable first-disc choices like Fantasy's Mongo's Greatest Hits and Rhino's Skin to Skin anthology.

One of Mongo's biggest records of the early 70s – and an important early side for Atlantic Records! Moving to Atlantic from Columbia, Mongo hipped things up even more – picking up on important trends in soul, rock, and the Latin underground of the time. Atlantic gave Mongo the freedom to open things up a bit more – and fill his grooves with a bit more funk, jazz, and Chicano soul than heard on earlier albums. The result is a wonderful blend of styles that crackles with electricity from track to track. Arrangements are by Mongo's longtime partner, Marty Sheller – and titles include "Hip Hug Her", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Hold On, I'm Coming", "On Broadway", and "In A Gadda Da Vida", which is a real trip!

''Feelin' Alright''


Biography By Richard S. Ginell (AMG):
A Mongo Santamaria concert is a mesmerizing spectacle for both eyes and ears, and even in his seventies, this seemingly ageless Cuban percussionist/bandleader could energize packed behemoth arenas such as the Hollywood Bowl. A master conguero, Santamaria at his best creates an incantatory spell rooted in Cuban religious rituals, quietly seating himself before his congas and soloing with total command over the rhythmic spaces between the beats while his band pumps out an endless vamp (a potent example on records is the hypnotic "Mazacote" available on Afro-Roots [Prestige]). He has been hugely influential as a leader, running durable bands that combine the traditional charanga with jazz-oriented brass, wind, and piano solos, featuring such future notables as Chick Corea and Hubert Laws. He also reached out into R&B, rock, and electric jazz at times in his long career. No Cuban percussionist, with the possible exception of Santana's Armando Peraza (and let's not count Desi Arnaz!), has reached more listeners than Mongo.
Ramon "Mongo" Santamaria originally took up the violin but then switched to drums before dropping out of school to become a professional musician. A performer at the Tropicana Club in Havana, Mongo traveled to Mexico City with a dance team in 1948 and then moved to New York City in 1950, where he made his American debut with Pérez Prado and spent six years trading percussive barrages with Tito Puente and performing and recording with Cal Tjader (1957-1960). Mongo's first significant recordings in America were made in 1958 for Fantasy; his second Fantasy album, Mongo (1959), contained a composition called "Afro-Blue," which quickly became a Latin jazz standard, taken up by John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, and others.
Santamaria's breakthrough into the mass market may have come as a result of a bad night at a Cuban nightclub in the Bronx in 1962. As the story goes, only three people showed up in the audience, so the musicians held a bull session in which the substitute pianist for the gig, Herbie Hancock, demonstrated his new blues tune, "Watermelon Man." Everyone gradually joined in, the number became a part of Mongo's repertoire, and when producer Orrin Keepnews heard it, he rushed the band into a studio and recorded a single that leaped to the number ten slot on the pop charts in 1963.
The success of Santamaria's cross-pollination of jazz, R&B, and Latin music on "Watermelon Man" and a string of Battle and Riverside albums led to a high-profile contract with Columbia that resulted in a wave of hot, danceable albums between 1965 and 1970. With a brighter, brassy sound propelled by trumpeter Marty Sheller's driving charts, often covering hits of the day, the Santamaria band perfectly reflected the mood of the go-go '60s, and Mongo continued to mix genres into the '70s. Santamaria then returned to his Afro-Cuban base, recording for Vaya in the early '70s, teaming with Gillespie and Toots Thielemans for a live gig at Montreux for Pablo in 1980, recording several albums for Concord Picante (1987-1990), a sole effort for Chesky in 1993 and a return to the Fantasy fold via its Milestone subsidiary in 1995. He died on February 1, 2003, at Baptist Hospital in Miami, following a stroke.

Gwen Guthrie – Portrait - back


''Padlock''

Reviews:
Sly and Robbie again, and the same basic formula: mindless dance tracks Guthrie didn't write, some with good hooks ("Seventh Heaven"), some without ("Hopscotch"), and a couple of fine Guthrie slow numbers ("Younger Than Me," "Oh What A Life"). The most embarrassing moment is a bubble-gum funk cover of Sly Stone's "Family Affair," which loses all the original's power. Guests include Bernie Worrell and Jimmy Maeulin.
From WARR

Early work from Gwen Guthrie – produced by Sly & Robbie, but with a sweet modern soul sound that's got a lot less of their influence than you'd guess! The sound is much more New York than Jamaica – and that's probably due to some great instrumental backing on keyboards by the likes of Harry Whitaker, Bernie Worrell, and Wally Badarou – all massive talents that bring a nice sweet jazzy sound to the best cuts on the record. There's a definite 80s sing-song groove going on – in that not-yet-top-of-the-charts soul sound that you'd hear on the better small urban stations at the time – moving back and forth nicely, in a strong link between the mainstream and the underground clubs! Tracks include "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Oh What A Life", "Younger Than Me", and a nice cover of Sly Stone's "Family Affair".

Gwen Guthrie – Portrait - label


''Seventh Heaven''

Biography:
Guthrie was born in Okemah, Oklahoma and raised in Newark, New Jersey. In school, she studied classical music, and her father began teaching her piano when she was eight years old. By the early 1970s, she had joined vocal groups such as the Ebonettes and the Matchmakers, meanwhile working as an elementary school teacher. When a backup singer scheduled to sing on Aretha Franklin's 1974 single "I'm in Love" fell ill, Guthrie took the vocalist's place beside Cissy Houston; thus Guthrie would happily state that her career on record began "at the top".
Guthrie soon began moonlighting as a singer of commercial jingles, sometimes with her friend Valerie Simpson (of the Ashford & Simpson fame). A songwriting partnership with her then boyfriend, trombonist/bassist Haras Fyre (professionally known as "Patrick Grant") resulted in Ben E. King's comeback single, "Supernatural Thing", and "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", covered by numerous artists. Together they wrote seven tracks on the Sister Sledge's 1975 album Circle of Love: "Cross My Heart", "Protect Our Love", "Love Don't You Go Through No Changes on Me", "Don't You Miss Him Now", "Pain Reliever", "You're Much Better Off Loving Me", and "Fireman". She was also the writer of Roberta Flack's "God Don't Like Ugly".
As Guthrie's solo career developed, she worked extensively with Sly and Robbie on dub-influenced club cuts, and began racking up dance hits. She was dubbed "The First Lady of the Paradise Garage" as several of her songs became anthems at the venue, helped by the frequent and dynamic performances she gave there. She soon teamed musically with famed Paradise Garage DJ Larry Levan, and recorded her first major landmark hit, "Padlock" in 1983 with the Compass Point All Stars in Nassau, Bahamas which became a club and radio hit two years later.
Guthrie is probably best known for her 1986 dance anthem "Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent", a self-written and -produced track which garnered some controversy for its misandric and materialistic lyrics such as: "You've got to have a j-o-b if you want to be with me/No romance without finance". A literal reading suggests a man only require the finances to make a relationship work. However, Guthrie's lyrics intend to motivate her partner into being responsible for maintaining equality and financial stability.
"Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent" was later sampled by numerous dance and hip hop artists, notably by Foxy Brown in her 1998 song "JOB" featuring Mýa and by Utah Saints for the original version of their hit "What Can You Do for Me". The song is referenced in the Eddie Murphy monologue "No Romance Without Finance", in his Eddie Murphy Raw concert and film (also available on DVD). Guthrie also had a hit in 1986 with a cover of "(They Long to Be) Close to You", which reached number twenty-five on the UK Singles Chart the same year.
Her single "Can't Love You Tonight" boldly addressed AIDS at a time when the disease was a taboo subject. Guthrie was an ally to the gay community, and to people with AIDS long before the masses caught up. Proceeds from the single went to the AIDS Coalition.
Other club hits of hers include the Compass Point All Stars-produced "Seventh Heaven", "Peanut Butter", and "Peek-a-Boo". "Padlock" was later covered by M People, who included it on their 1995 album Bizarre Fruit, featuring vocalist Heather Small.
Guthrie died of uterine cancer on February 3, 1999, at the age of 48, and was interred in Fairmount Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey.

Our definitive position about corporate advertising.

A 'Death Spiral of Disrespect'; If the Consumer is Really King, Why Do Marketers Keep Bombarding Him?

By Gary Ruskin
Commercial Alert

In the United States and across the planet, there are myriad signs of a growing revolt against the advertising industry.
Polls show rising resentment of the industry and its aggressive tactics. According to a new Yankelovich Partners poll, 65% of Americans say they are ‘’constantly bombarded with too much’’ advertising; 61% think the quantity of advertising and marketing they are exposed to ‘’is out of control’’; 60% report that their view of advertising is ‘’much more negative than just a few years ago.’’
Responding to sports fans’ disgust over the sale of naming rights, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors restored the name Candlestick Park to its baseball stadium, which became the first pro sports arena to return to its popular name because of popular protest. In Denver, Mayor John Hickenlooper rose to prominence as the lead opponent to the sale of naming rights to Mile High Stadium. The placement of ads on pro baseball uniforms and batting helmets drew a spate of negative news coverage this month, a letter from a U.S. senator and a New York Times editorial.
Advertisers are being expelled from schools in droves. Channel One, the in-school advertising service, was removed last school year from Nashville, and will soon be kicked out of Seattle. New restrictions on the marketing or sale of soda or junk food in school have been approved in places such as California, Texas, New York City and Philadelphia.
These are just a few flashpoints. I could list many more. The point is that the advertising industry is growing a formidable list of opponents. It would do the industry some good to ponder why this is happening. The main reason, I suspect, is that the industry abides no limits or boundaries. There seems to be almost nowhere that the industry won’t stick an ad.
Most Americans accept advertising as a part of the circus of life. We at Commercial Alert certainly do. But the advertising industry seems caught up in a death spiral of disrespect. In its desperate clamor to claim the attention of potential shoppers, the industry invents a new intrusive ad mechanism almost every week, until citizens are driven nuts by all the billboards, product placement, junk faxes, pop-unders and all the rest of it.

No Royal Treatment
As for the bromide that the ‘’consumer is king’’-well, no one harasses a real king.
The industry’s implicit message is a total lack of respect for our time, our privacy, our attention, our peace of mind, and not least for our concerns about our kids. ‘’Your attention is ours,’’ the industry says, in effect. ‘’We are entitled to it at every moment.’’ This implicit disrespect for consumers is starting to overwhelm the explicit messages that each advertiser is trying to get across.
The industry’s disrespect is obvious in the spread of coercive advertising. If advertising were popular, why would the industry force us to watch it? But it does; the industry takes advantage of captive audiences in schools, colleges, movie theaters, airport lounges, mass transit and at ATM’s, gas pumps and doctors’ offices, among other places.
Even worse is the industry’s disdain for health, especially that of our children. American children are suffering from an epidemic of marketing-related diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, while millions of children will die from the marketing of tobacco when they grow older. Yet the industry denies any responsibility for the declining health for our youth, and the prospect that our children may have shorter life spans than we do.
Worldwide, the industry is creating a powerful backlash over its impact on public health. Last year, the World Health Organization unanimously approved the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, which bans the advertising of tobacco products in countries whose constitutions permit it. Hundreds of the world’s top public health organizations, scholars and elected officials have endorsed a proposed worldwide ban on the marketing of unhealthy food to children.
Then there’s the corruption of civic institutions, like city governments, schools and police. Coca-Cola has signed marketing deals with Huntington Beach and East Lansing, Mich., while PepsiCo has agreements with San Diego, and Fresno, Calif. The schools are rife with advertising. So are our post offices. One company has even been trying to sell ads on police cars. More and more, our civic institutions are looking like commercial pawns in a banana republic.

Reaching Limits
We Americans are a tolerant bunch, but there is a limit to the amount of hassling and insults we will absorb.
The upshot is: If you have contempt for citizens, we will have contempt for you, too. The outcome of that mutual contempt will be decided in courts and legislatures for decades to come, but the rising intrusiveness and unpopularity of the industry does not bode well for its chances.
Mutual contempt is bad for business. But it can be reversed. You might start with a bit of self-restraint.
This country is hungry for acts of heroism and principle in the advertising arena. If advertisers want to stand out from the noise, then stop the commercial trespassing. Make it known that you respect us, and our civic institutions, children, noncommercial culture, public health and public spaces. Then act accordingly. This would make advertising more welcome, and probably more effective, too.
If you don’t take responsibility for your own actions, don’t be surprised if citizens demand some relief. Such as: prohibitions against forcing anyone to watch advertising; bans on ads that increase the incidence of marketing-related diseases; no advertising to children 12 years of age and under; and no conversion of governments, schools and public spaces into advertising vehicles.
It is better for the industry to act voluntarily. Otherwise, after a long court battle, angry citizens will get rid of the commercial speech doctrine and replace it with the right to be left alone.

''Involuntary Bliss''

Reviews:
Eddie Henderson, George Duke, and Alphonso Johnson brink the funk on this one. A really amazing album full of tight ensemble playing, brilliant and out solos, funky grooves, and excellent compositions. Many might know Henderson from his work in Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi group and although the last track on this album sonds similar to that free style of jazz this album is really much more funk oriented, with pretty tight arrangments. If you are a fan of Geroge Duke's early solo work or Stanley Clarke's early work, you'll love this album.
From Amazon

Funky fusion doesn't get any funkier than this – and the album's one of the greatest 70s recordings by jazz funk trumpeter Eddie Henderson! The album's got a harder edge than a lot of Eddie's other records of the decade – razor sharp rhythms crackling away underneath a sublime space-heavy mix of keyboards, bass, saxes, and Eddie's funky trumpet. The group includes work by Harvey Mason, George Duke, Julian Priester, Alphonso Johnson, and Bennie Maupin – and the great Skip Drinkwater is at the production chair, cutting the grooves here with a lot more fire than in some of his later work! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Involuntary Bliss", "Galaxy", "Kumquat Kids", and "Explodition".

''Hop Scotch''

Switching over to Blue Note, which was then reaping a fortune with Donald Byrd's R&B outfit, Eddie Henderson pursued a harder, earthier, more structured, funk-driven sound on his first album, while maintaining some of his marvelously spacier instincts for spice. Henderson continued to keep several components of the Herbie Hancock Septet together, for drummer Billy Hart, bassist Buster Williams, reedman Bennie Maupin, and now trombonist Julian Priester are back. But this time, Hancock is replaced by George Duke, and fusionaire bassist Alphonso Johnson and drummer Harvey Mason (late of the Headhunters) are added -- and these switches make much of the difference. Duke is as much of an techie as Herbie was; he delights in flaunting his Echoplex and burbling, shooting, twinkling synthesizer effects. Henderson himself is more into electronic echo and wah-wah effects than before, definitely pursuing the current Miles Davis line but in a brighter, more tonally brilliant manner, and Maupin has many impassioned and creepy (on bass clarinet) moments. The title track, a ruminative Henderson tune with a leaping funk beat, and Mason's archetypical funk workout "Hop Scotch" are the best cuts.
By Richard S. Ginell (AMG)

Biography by Scott Yanow (AMG):
Eddie Henderson was one of the few trumpeters who was strongly influenced by Miles Davis' work of his early fusion period. He grew up in San Francisco, studied trumpet at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but was trained to be a doctor when he permanently chose music. Henderson worked with John Handy, Tyrone Washington, and Joe Henderson, in addition to his own group. He gained some recognition for his work with the Herbie Hancock Sextet (1970-1973), although his own records (which utilized electronics) tended to be commercial. After Hancock broke up his group, Henderson worked with Art Blakey and Mike Nock, recorded with Charles Earland, and later, in the 1970s, led a rock-oriented group. In the '90s, he returned to playing acoustic hard bop (touring with Billy Harper in 1991) while also working as a psychiatrist.

Catalog # SS-5226642

Tony’s Theme (from the film Lady In Cement)
Hallelujah! I’m Comin’ Home
Thousand Finger Man

Herbie Lovelle- drums.


''Jump Back''

Review by Patrick Jones:
Born in the El Cerro barrio of Cuba in 1921, Candido Camero began his musical career playing popular eastern Cuban “Son” (the foundation of what we now call “Salsa”) music on bass, guitar and mandolin at an early age. In this initial period, Candido worked with legendary percussionists Luciano “Chano” Pozo and a young Romon “Mongo” Santamaria. Later, Candido switched his attention to the bongo and conga and developed a trailblazing technique that added a new rhythmic dimension to the instruments. In essence, Candido would keep a steady rhythm with one hand while improvising with the other. He is also credited with playing two, and sometimes three, congas simultaneously for the first time. Both of these innovations quickly earned Candido the attention of other great jazz, latin and R&B players. As a result, from his arrival in the United States in 1946 through the present, Candido has recorded on over 100 albums with such legends as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Taylor, Erroll Garner, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington Charles Mingus, Machito, Ray Charles, Tito Puente, and many others. Candido’s music blends traditional Cuban rhythms with various American musical styles.
On the Candido’s 1970 release, Thousand Finger Man, we find the famed percussionist mining popular dance music for an exuberently energetic album of funky soul-grooves. The sound is big and bawdy and the obvious point is to get people on their feet to shake a tail feather. On this level, the record is a tremendous success and should be of value to current DJs ever in pursuit of a new groove as well as rare groove, retro-connoisseurs. While Joe Cain’s arrangements, particularly on horns, are occasionally cheesy (in a similar way to Herbie Hancock’s Warner Brothers releases from the same era), conjuring images of late-’60s, early-’70s television shows or action films, Candido’s improvisation will leave even the stiffest jaws on the floor. On “Tony’s Theme,” “Soul Limbo,” Come On Choo-Choo Train,” and “Jump Back” he employs three congo drums at once with blistering skill. The title track includes a propulsive mix of bongos and congas and the gospel-influenced “Hallelujah! I’m Coming Home” features Candido on bongos for a clearer, yet no less frenetic, sound. This is not an album to think too hard about. It is an album to put on when you are feeling up, dancy or like having a party. Viva Candido! Play on!

DJs: Piero Cossu

Piero Cossu - Foto di Simone Durante
Piero Cossu - Foto di Simone Durante

Ciao mi chiamo Piero Cossu, seguo la Musica Funk dalla fine degli anni 70 grazie ad una radio locale che trasmetteva nella piccola cittadina dove vivevo, Radio "E" dove la "E" sta per Explosion . All'età di 15 anni mi sono appassionato al mondo della discoteca continuando ad ascoltare oltre al Funk anche il Rock , scegliendo dopo qualche anno ed escursioni sonore il Soul ed il Jazz . Il mondo della disco mi ha catturato fondendo nella nascente House tutti i suoni che avevano caratterizzato gli ascolti della mia infanzia.
Comincio ad ascoltare i primi Dj della capitale Romana all'epoca il Mitico Marco Trani , Francesco Borgese e Claudio Cataldi che preferivo ad altri . Da loro ascolto la tecnica di fusione dei vari brani il Mixaggio. Da allora dopo aver passato più di 15 anni nei club prima come cliente poi come Dj la passione non è cambiata e rimane più viva che mai. Dopo un'interruzione apparente nel senso che non ho più frequentato eventi nè Club in veste di cliente Qualcosa si smuove .
La Mia scelta musicale rimane la stessa arricchita da influenze elettronico Tribali, ed ambienti Deep.
Piero Cossu

First excuse for my English...
My name is Piero Cossu and i'm living in Italy near Rome. I had followed Funk Music since the '70ies. Thanks to a local radio that transmitted in the small town where I lived Radio "Explosion". To the 15 year-old age I have grieved some world of the disco continuing to also listen besides the Funk the Soul and the Jazz. The world of the disk has captured me melting in the dawning House all the sounds that had characterized the listening of my infancy.
I start to listen to the first Djs of the Roman capital to the epoch the Mythical Marco Trani, Francesco Borgese and Claudio Cataldi that I preferred to others. From them listening the technique of fusion of the various passages the Mixaggio. since then after more than 15 years to have passed then in the clubs first as client. Some year later as Dj the passion is not changed and remains more alive than never. After an apparent interruption in the sense that I have frequented neither events nor Club anymore as client Something he shifts.
My musical choice remains the same with enriched by influences electronic Tribal, and environments Deep.

From SoulBrother Records UK

Hidden Strength-disco mix long


''Hustle On Up (Do The Bump)''
Extended 12'' Disco Version

A killer bit of funky soul from Hidden Strength – an uptempo 70s group with a very tight groove! The group are clearly in the mode of Earth Wind & Fire – extremely proficient instrumentally, grooving together in a righteous style that has plenty of jazz, but which is also going for a more straight ahead soul-based approach. Hidden Strength are best known for their classic groover "Hustle On Up (Do The Bump)" – a killer track with a nice funky bus stop groove and some great moog – but the whole album's pretty darn sweet, with other tracks that include "It Didn't Have To Be This Way", "Angel Of Love", "I Don't Want To Be A Lone Ranger", "I Wanna Be Your Main Man", "All We Need Is Time", and "Happy Song".
