Jeff Ament Says Pearl Jam Are ‘Inspired’ To Record A New Album

first_imgWith a major tour coming up for Pearl Jam, including headlining sets at Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo, it’s up to bassist Jeff Ament to get people excited about the tour. In anticipation, Ament gave a big interview with Popmatters, in which he mainly discusses his side-project RNDM, but slips in a few tidbits about Pearl Jam that caught our eye.While Ament previously said that they don’t have specific plans to record an album, the new interview now makes it seem like the group is inspired and eager to get into the studio. “The political answer – we don’t have any plans. Beyond the shows this summer is trying to get into the studio and mess around a little bit. That’s always exciting for me. Everybody’s ready for the challenge and everybody’s ready to do something different. Maybe the last couple of records have been trying a different formula. Everybody’s sort of on board with that. It feels like there’s inspiration, like people are inspired right now. That’s exciting.”He also addressed the fact that 2016 marks Pearl Jam’s 25th anniversary. In the interview, Ament says the band doesn’t have any special plans to mark the occasion, unlike their major celebration in 2011 for the 20th. Read the quote below:“We don’t have any plans for PJ25. And I think largely because PJ20 really does almost feel like it was last year. That’s how fast time goes at this point. Going out and playing shows, having people show up, having our fans be so great and so engaged in the shows—all the shows that we play feel like celebrations. I’m enjoying acknowledging that on stage more than I ever have and really taking that in and being humbled by it. Being really proud of what we’ve created as a band and the decisions that we’ve made. That’s the PJ25 answer.”For the full scoop, head to Popmatters. The band’s full tour schedule can be viewed here.last_img read more

Watch As Ween Jams With The Great Bernie Worrell In 2003

first_imgIt’s well known that the guys from Ween are huge fans of the great Bernie Worrell. The band’s lovable guitarist Dean Ween recently had the opportunity to play with Parliament Funkadelic guitarist Michael Hampton, and had scheduled a Dean Ween Group show that was supposed to feature Worrell as a special guest star. Though Worrell had to unfortunately cancel due to his ailing health, the group still played the set, however, dedicating the music as a tribute to Worrell and his legacy.The Ween-Worrell connection has a much deeper history, as the funk wizard once joined Ween at their performance on September 26th, 2003 in Berkeley, CA. The band hit the Greek Theatre, welcoming out Worrell for an extra funky take on the Ween original tune, “Pandy Fackler.”Watch some footage of that jam session below, as well as a full-length audio stream of the collaboration. For the Ween faithful, here’s a playlist of every song from that fateful performance in 2003. Enjoy!last_img read more

Dead & Company Pay Tribute To Rob Wasserman In Colorado Opener [Full Audio/Videos]

first_imgDead & Company made their way to Folsom Field in Boulder, CO last night, playing the first of two exciting July 4th weekend performances in the colorful state. The venue had not hosted live music since 2001, making these performances all the more special for local fans. What would Dead & Company do to honor the occasion?The group brought some serious fire to the venue, opening up the show with a bouncing “Bertha” before jamming into the classic Dead cover, “Good Lovin’.” The band was smokin’ from the get go, and brought out jams like “Tennessee Jed” and “Cold Rain and Snow” to keep things moving. From there, Bob Weir took a moment to honor his lost friend, Rob Wasserman, who passed away earlier in the week. Wasserman was a member of Weir’s band Ratdog, and the Dead & Company band decided to debut Ratdog’s “Even So” in his honor. It was a touching moment.The set finished up with “Uncle John’s Band” and “One More Saturday Night,” as the classic Grateful Dead numbers filled the air of the Colorado venue. The band then opened the second set with a great song pairing: “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire on the Mountain.” They were locked in and firing high, bringing out “Saint of Circumstance” before going into “Terrapin Station.” Dead & Company really showed off their improvisational prowess through the run of songs, and kept things going with a sick “Drums/Space.” “Stella Blue” brought the band back to Earth, and “Throwing Stones” and “Not Fade Away” closed out a wonderful second set.Finally, the encore brought one of Dead & Company’s newer songs, as John Mayer handled vocals on “Black Muddy River.” Check out videos and the full setlist below!Bertha/Good Lovin’One More Saturday NightScarlet Begonias/Fire On The MountainThrowin’ StonesBlack Muddy RiverFull Audio (via taper Jeff Frank)The setlist can be seen below!Edit this setlist | More Dead & Company setlistslast_img read more

GRiZ Collaborates With Cherub For Funky New Single “PS GFY” [Listen]

first_imgFor his second single release from his forthcoming album Good Will Prevail (release date of Sept. 23rd), Michigan-based funk producer GRiZ has released the track “PS GFY” which features long-time friends and co-conspirators Cherub. The song features some upbeat funk with some ripping guitar work and vocals (take a listen below).“I originally wrote this song about my brothers ex-girlfriend but then it turned into a funky middle fingers up but celebratory and super swaggerific f*ck you to anyone who done you mad dirty,” GRiZ recently discussed with Billboard Dance. “But the strong thing about a proper f*ck you is to make sure you give them a nice condescending ‘hope life treats you swell.’”“We’ve been friends with Grant for years now,” says Cherub’s Jason Huber. “It’s always a rowdy time pulling renegade DJ sets, deep in the music festival campsites. We are so stoked to make the collaboration all that much more official with ‘PS GFY.’ Grant’s dedication to his music and his fans is really inspiring. I’ve seen the blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into this new GRiZ record. It’s an honor to be a part of it.”Listen to “PS GFY” ft.

GRiZ To The People: ‘Good Will Prevail’ [Album Stream/Review]

first_imgIn light of rising tensions across the globe, GRiZ’s most recent musical message is to embrace the faith that Good Will Prevail. The mastermind, Grant Kwiecinski formally, has always encouraged the doctrine of showing love and spreading love, and this fifth studio album is a soulful gospel for the choir. With an excellent blend of spirit-lifting funk and head-banging bass, GRiZ continues to radiate positivity from his core – and out his sax!Check out the full stream here and read the review below.Haunting vocals by Eric Krasno, along with a deep, spacey drop and piercing horn, make for an aptly named opening track, “Wicked.” The rock ‘n roll heavy banger, “Can’t Hold Me Down,” has been on repeat since its release last month – for GRiZFam at least – and features Tash Neal of the London Souls. If your knees aren’t bottoming out, you’re doing it wrong. “My Friends and I” is an instant favorite, with Chicago’s Prob Cause spitting lyrics that are funk nasty fresh. Be warned: the basslines in this track will straight up slice and dice you!Ida Hawk, unsurprisingly (yet wonderfully), was tapped in for “I Don’t Mind,” along with Sunsquabi and Artifakts, who complete the horn-filled, jammy tune. Other familiar voices include Leo Napier, who delivers strong lyrical content in “Before I Go,” and Muzzy Bear, whose “whoas” and electric guitar sing beautifully in “Rather Be Free.” Ganja-praising sing-along, “Good Times Roll,” is as epic as you’d expect from a collaboration with Big Gigantic, but with the original release being back in 2015, this track now feels like a bundle of warm funkin memories.Cherub’s playful influence is evident in the edgy “PS GFY,” which was originally written about GRiZ’ brother’s former love. It’s a great middle-finger-in-the-air anthem – and probably my ex-boyfriend’s new favorite song. On a lighter note, “Feelin Fine” is a nice slow jam fit for a midnight cruise in the moonlight. “What We’ve Become” will also keep you lifted, with poppy vocals from Cory Enemy and Nat Dunn, and some sultry sax to complement. The final, dreamy track, “Driftin,” featuring Son Little, will leave you sailing real far away.Enveloped in these feel-good vibes, it’s easy to forget the troubles of the world. Music, in general, provides these brief releases, and for that, and to GRiZ, we are thankful. The upcoming supporting tour, which kicks off next week at Red Rocks, will surely make a believer in all of us. Good Will Prevail!last_img read more

Brooklyn Comes Alive Announces Full Schedule With Artist Additions

first_imgThis Saturday, October 22, Brooklyn Comes Alive is taking over Williamsburg for the second year in a row. Inspired by the vibrant musical communities of Brooklyn and New Orleans, the festival is bringing over 50 musicians together to perform in specially-crafted supergroup formations for once-in-a-lifetime collaborations across three nearby venues within a 10-minute walking radius. From rock to jam, funk to jazz, electronic to hip-hop, there’s something for everyone. The full lineup can be found here.Brooklyn Comes Alive has also added a few more artists to the lineup, including a special cocktail hour with DJ Logic, keyboardist Steve Molitz (Particle), drummer Scotty Zwang (formerly Dopapod), and bassist Luke Bemand (lespecial) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Maurice Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band) and Chauncey Yearwood (High & Mighty Brass Band) will also be joining the Tribute to J Dilla with Borahm Lee, Adam Deitch, Adam Smirnoff, Nate Edgar, and Stu Brooks. With Brooklyn being known for its artistic residencies, you’ll never know who else might show up to play during this daylong event!Today, the festival announces the full schedule for all three venues. From brunch at The Hall at MP Taverna to late-nights at Brooklyn Bowl and Music Hall of Williamsburg, the day is to be jam-packed with non-stop music, first-time experiences, and a vibe only available in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets to the event grants you access to all three venues, and can be found here. More information can be found on the event’s website.Get pumped with this Brooklyn Comes Alive playlist!The Hall at MPThe All Brothers Band: Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company, Allman Brothers), keyboardist and flautist Kofi Bubridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Derek Trucks Band), keyboardist Neal Evans (Lettuce, Soulive) and drummer Alan Evans (Soulive, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) are making their debut performance as “The All Brothers Band.” The brothers collaborated for an EP earlier this year, though they’ve yet to present this project for public ears. We can expect smooth layers of funk and jazz with these players, but there’s really no telling what they might have in store.The Coomes Brothers: Featuring Lettuce’s Jesus Coomes and his brother Ty Coomes, along with Lettuce’s Adam Smirnoff, Eric “Benny” Bloom, and Ryan Zoidis, this group is sure to bring intergalactic funk and freestyle fusion, with roots of hip-hop, R&B, and soul mixed in.Holly Bowling: Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There’s one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly’s devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. The past year has seen Holly expand her repertoire into the realm of the Grateful Dead. Using classical piano technique to reinterpret these jamband luminaries, Holly’s live performances infuse new with old, tradition with surreal, and creates a concert experience like nothing else in the music world.Jason Hann’s Rythmatronix: Jason Hann is bringing an all-star group of musicians to join his NYC edition of the Rhythmatronix, featuring Oteil Burbridge, virtuoso guitarist Fareed Haque (Sting, Joe Zawinul, Garaj Mahal), keyboardist Todd Stoops (RAQ, Electric Beethoven), and Afrocuban drummer Raul Pineda (Chucho Valdez, Sintesis). When we spoke to Hann about the new project, he excitedly described it as “global fusion music with a collection of badass musicians playing international grooves.” More information here.Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven: A brand new instrumental collective with a direct focus on the classical suites of composer Ludwig Van Beethoven. The brainchild of bassist Reed Mathis, the band features Jay Lane (drums), Todd Stoops (keys), and Clay Welch (guitar) in a movement that can only be described as “Classical Dance Music.” More information here.Roosevelt Collier’s NY Get Down: The pedal steel guitar player will lead bassist Michael League (Snarky Puppy), Rob Compa (Dopapod), Eli Winderman(Dopapod), and Adrian Tramontano (Kung Fu) through a set of game-changing jams and deep cuts alike. More information here.Tim Palmieri & Friends: Selecting a band of musicians that will bring the funk, the fusion, and the party, Tim is ready to entertain you with guitar shredding and good times! Featuring Alan Evans on drums, Dan Edinberg on bass, Rob Marscher on keys, Rob Somerville on sax/vocals, Johnny Durkin on percussion, and Jen Durkin on vocals – this band is an amalgamation of the Northeast jam sound. Expect the unexpected.Organ Freeman: It’s some serious toe-tapping jives, fueled by the trio hard at work: guitarist Erik Carlson, drummer Rob Humphreys and organist Trevor Steer. Like many bands comprised of tight-laced musicianship, Organ Freeman emerged from an intensive music program called the Musicians Institute of Hollywood. Steer explains that the group “initially formed the group as more of an opportunity to experiment than a serious project while we were all students, and continued on as a creative outlet while we all played out as freelance musicians. It wasn’t until years later when we were presented with the chance to do a record that the band sort of morphed into what it is today.” More information here.Brooklyn BowlEarth, Wind & Power: For the second time, The Nth Power will lead Oteil Burbridge, Kofi Burbridge, Natalie Cressman, Skerik, The Shady Horns, Farnell Newton, Danny Sadownick, and more through a tribute to Earth, Wind And Fire. Perhaps one of the most talked-about sets of the Jazz Fest season, “Earth, Wind & Power” isn’t letting the fire extinguish just yet. More information here.DRKWAV: Featuring keyboardist John Medeski (MMW, The Word), drummer Adam Deitch (Lettuce, Break Science), and saxophonist Skerik (Garage A Trois, Critters Buggin’), the trio revels in the pitch black while continuously discovering beauty and shedding light through sonic exploration. Expect a unique blend of space-shifting jazz, experimental rock, and psychedelic transformations. More information here.Scott Metzger, Joe Russo, Robert Walter, and Andy Hess: This will be the group’s second show together, following their performance as “The Brooklyn Bowl All-Stars” in August of 2014. There’s a distinct mix of rock, soul, funk, and jam in the mix – so be sure not to miss these all-star musicians as they make their BCA debut. More information here.Natalie Cressman presents Nikki Glaspie, Will Bernard, Chris Bullock, Benny Rietveld, and Samora Pinderhughs: Raised in an eclectic musical household, Natalie Cressman has only continued to diversify and expand her musical universe. Still in her early 20s, the trombonist/composer/vocalist has assimilated the full range of her sonic influences into a startlingly mature, strikingly original voice that melds the sophistication of modern jazz with captivating storytelling and intoxicating melodies reminiscent of indie rock’s most distinctive songwriters. Cressman has spent much of the last four years touring the jam band circuit with Phish’s Trey Anastasio, while also performing with jazz luminaries Nicholas Payton, Wycliffe Gordon, and Peter Apfelbaum. With Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power), Will Bernard (Stanton Moore Trio), Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Benny Rietveld (Santana), and Samora Pinderhughs (Emily King, Branford Marsalis) on board, this set is sure to be jaw-droppingly wonderful.Ripe: Ripe is a Funk/Pop band out of Boston, MA that was born as a result of its seven members’ uniting over one belief: with enough passion and honesty, music can still make the earth shake. With one eye looking back to the inception of both funk and psychedelic music, and the other looking forward with a modern concept of what makes people move, Ripe seeks both to honor musical history as well as to make it. The perfect fruit is equal parts past and present, and this is the approach of the Ripe sound. More about them here.The Music Hall of WilliamsburgA Tribute To J Dilla: Led by Break Science’s Borahm Lee, the tribute will run deep in the roots of hip-hop with fine-tuned artists, drummer Adam Deitch (Lettuce/Break Science), guitarist Adam Smirnoff (Lettuce), bassist Nate Edgar (The Nth Power), bassist Stu Brooks (Matisyahu, 50 Cent, Pretty Lights), trumpeter Maurice Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band), Chauncey Yearwood (High & Mighty Brass Band), and more. Since his untimely death in 2006, Dilla’s productions have achieved cult status, and his legacy has grown with posthumous album releases and a slew of tributes by everyone from Flying Lotus to Kendrick Lamar. Brooklyn Comes Alive looks forward to honoring the beat master with some of the most creative players to date. More information here.[Br]eaking [Bi]scuits: Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee are teaming up with The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner for a one-time-only collaboration, merging together the worlds of electronic, hip-hop, psychedelic grooves and heavy jams. More information here.BRASSTRACKS: The Brooklyn-based power duo, self-described as “future brass”, were recently featured on Chance The Rapper‘s Coloring Book for the hit song “No Problem” but its their original music that truly showcases the young talents of Ivan Jackson (trumpet) and Conor Rayne (drums). Check them out!Brownie DJ Set: The Disco Biscuits bassist will be mixing deep cuts, throwbacks, and his favorite dance tunes for a special night in funky town! If you’ve never seen Marc Brownstein throw down a DJ set, don’t sleep on this one.Horizon Wireless Live: NYC’s own Horizon Wireless blends psychedelic break-beat & house music with a variety of other styles including trip-hop, minimal tech-funk, and nu-jazz to create smooth, high energy, and live soulful dance experiences for fans of all genres of music. The band includes Teddy Midnight’s guitar virtuoso Willey Griffin, Lespecial’s low-end wizard Luke Bemand on bass, Daniel Scott Lyons behind the kit, and a rotating cast of keyboardists as well.Manic Focus And Friends: Manic Focus is the beat-bumpin’ project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Chicago-based electronic music producer hailing from the Twin Cities. A multi-dimensional artist with a rowdy style unbound to any one genre, Manic Focus transcends sound waves by fusing soulful blues with heavy-hitting bass, creating a resonating tone that’s entirely his own. And he’s bringing some very special friends!DJ Logic/Molitz/Zwang: Turntablist and live music staple DJ Logic is hosting a special set with keyboardist Steve Molitz (Particle) and drummer Scotty Zwang (formerly Dopapod). The three musicians will present a genre-defying performance of live improvisational jamming that will set the perfect tone for the rest of the night. See you on the dance floor!last_img read more

The point is clearly proven on numbers such as “Right Now”, while Smith and Cassarino providing those extra layers and depth on keys and guitar, respectively.“Take My Soul” is a truly gritty blues number, featuring Cassarino channeling his inner Stevie Ray Vaughan.
