Funk Jazz | Turkish Traditional Music | mp3 | 192 Kbps | 82 Mb | 10 Tracks



This is an unusual offering for the New York funk/jazz/hip hop outfit, recorded in Istanbul in consortium with local combo Laço Tayfa. Already adept at fusing funk, reggae, Latin, and jazz in their mix, Funk Essentials here add Turkish rhythms and instruments like the kanun, oud, zuma, and clarinet, usually just for color in the dance groove. When things work, as on the title track, it's a highly successful marriage, but at times it is a little forced. The material strays to a couple of sappy "urban contemporary" ballads, but luckily Buzz Bag is generally upbeat, and the band's inherent musicality, humor, and intelligence keep things afloat. The most interesting tracks are the ones that carry the most Turkish influence, but generally this is less a World Summit than a Nu Kultural Flava.


Welcome to Istanbul!!

Grand Funk Railroad - On Time (1969)  Music

Grand Funk Railroad's 1969 debut is a wildly uneven affair. Although the exuberant energy and power-trio theatrics that would fuel their 1970s hits are in place, the group's songwriting and arranging abilities are very much in their infancy.

When Jerry Lee Lewis was recording for Sun records it was his most prolific period in my opinion and this great box set containing 128 of his best recordings is simply stunning. One of the best box sets out there. Each of the four discs contains plenty of vintage rock 'n' roll as well as a few country songs, an even some gospel and rhythm & blues ditties thrown in for good measure. Of course, all of the big hits are included, as well as some rare gems that will have you coming back for more. Also remarkable is the attention to detail in the beautiful booklet, which includes several terrific photos and a very informative biography. Also there's a very insightful commentary, complete with recording dates of every song in the collection.

Hi, I'm Oz Noy and welcome to Essentials: Funk Rhythm. Funk guitar is rooted in rhythm, packed with concepts like groove, playing in the pocket, and interacting with other musicians. In this edition of Essentials, we'll jump right in to the playing with 11 funk pieces in a variety of keys and feels. We'll start with a fundamental rhythm incorporating funk chordal runs. Next, we'll cover a repetition based rhythm part, then I'll show you how smaller chords can really help emphasize a groove. We'll go over some right hand techniques and really start to drive our rhythms. Then, we'll work on a funky approach using 7/6 chords, work on a wah-wah inspired guitar groove, and look at voice leading. Incorporating rhythm guitar grooves with other instruments is another key approach, so we'll focus on how the guitar interacts with the drums and bass. Finally, we'll use muting to enhance a funky rhythm part. I'll perform every piece and break it down for you, pointing out every technique you need to know.
