The new Robert Glasper (and a lot of friends like Herbie Hancock) CD released named F#$k Yo Feelings. Robert doing kind of a Mixtape with great musicians and recorded at great studio. I'm a big fan of Glasper and long time Herbie fan so had to pick this up the day it dropped. Also if you've ever seen any of Robert's videos especially in the studio he is so funny.
I'll be damned if this isn't one of the catchiest songs of all time, cannot stop listening! I was led here by seeing Empire of the Sun on Later with Jools Holland. Very theatrical in a Mad Max space alien kind of way, wearing this long blue gown, playing a brand of EDM (I think), but then he whips out a pretty nice guitar solo, quite odd. So I digs a bit, and lo and behold they have this tune, that has apparently boosted their career by being used in Honda commercial. Whatever, this is just so damn catchy.
Having recently seen TOTO for the first time and having the pleasure of meeting Steve Pocaro and the rest of the band, I'm in a complete TOTO groove these days...dissecting and learning as much of that material as possible. Some of it is simply brilliant.
Just picked up this, and really digging it, Amendola vs Blades: Everybody Wins. Scott Amendola on drums, Wil Blades on keys, mostly Hammond and Clav, along with a few guests like Tortoise's Jeff Parker on guitar. Great, funky, experimental but low-key stuff. I've seen Blades live a few times, he's a wonderful player.
