Videotipp: sneak peek @ Album 2 “Music’s In Everything” by Tahirah Memory

Ihr Debütalbum PRIDE gehörte für mich 2015 zu den SOULGURU Alben des Jahres – ein wundervolles Werk zwischen Soul und Jazz.

Jetzt hat Tahirah Memory mit einem Song über ihren Vater einen Vorgeschmack auf ihr zweites Album “Music’s In Everything“ geliefert.

I wrote this song because one of the most beautiful things my dad ever told me, was that music is simply in every single thing. He has passed away, and I hold on to it, and I look for it in all of the pieces of my life.

Tahirah Memory versucht “Music’s In Everything” über Crowdfunding zu finanzieren.

Wem der Song gefällt, kann Tahirah und ihren Traum vom zweiten Album hier unterstützen:

He produced all of the arrangements and performed all of the instruments himself.
Prince, Andre Cymone And Bobby Z recorded instrumentals in the rehearsal room of Owen Husney’s Loring Park office.
They sound like well-crafted compositions rather than spur-of-the-moment jams.
The tracks feature keyboards (Prince), Bass (Andre), Drums (Bobby Z).

NOJAZZ haben ihr neues Album „Soul Stimulation“  veröffentlicht und ein Blick auf die Gästeliste lässt staunen: gemeinsam mit STEVIE WONDER, MAURICE WHITE und US-Rapper BISHOP LAMONT verquirlen sie Drum&Bass, HipHop und Ethnoelemente mit Jazzgebläse und Synthesizer zu einem herrlichen Mix, der Laune macht:





„Sunset City“  ist ein Disco Konzept Album des britischen Produzenten, Komponisten und Remixer Soulpersona und der Sängerin Princess Freesia, das erfolgreich via Crowdfunding finanziert wurde.

Es entführt uns in das idyllische Land von Sunset City:

The girls are pretty, the grifters play hard, the police force is female, but the underlying cracks beneath the glamour and glitz are evident.

Musikalisch orientiert es sich an Disco, Jazzfunk, rare Groove und Soul der späten 70’s und frühen 80’s.

Disco concept albums don’t come along too often these days, which makes Sunset City even more of a treat. I’m loving Aviator, Tryin‘ and SCPD but really the standard of song writing and musicality is of a very high standard throughout this LP.“
– Joey Negro

Fast 20 Jahre nach ihrer Gründung behaupten The Haggis Horns ihre Spitzenposition an der Spitze der britischen Soul- und Funk-Bands.

Dies belegen auch die Arbeiten mit hochkarätigen Künstlern wie Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamiroquai, Lily Allen, Lou Donaldson, John Legend, The Roots, Martha Reeves oder Roots Manuva.

Das neue Album „One Of These Days“  beweist einmal mehr, warum The Haggis Horns nach zwei Jahrzehnten immer noch top sind:
