Clyde Stubblefield – Funk Thing

You don't have to do no soloing, brother, just keep what you got... Don't turn it loose, 'cause it's a mother. - James Brown to Clyde Stubblefield

Some drummers are all pyrotechnics. Some are all power. Others are rock-solid consistent. Not many could play one little twenty second break immersed in a ten-minute impromptu vamp and make an irresistible, booty-shakin' force that changes the landscape of music forever. There are probably more people in the world today who have – whether they realize it or not – heard a Clyde Stubblefield break or vamp than people who haven't. The Funky Drummer laid the rhythmic foundation of five decades and counting of the most popular music the world has ever known.

Bonus: Clyde and Jabo solo, together.

Kamasi Washington – The Rhythm Changes

We've spun a bit of Kamasi before, but no reason not to do so again. Good track for a Friday.


2016

I really want one of those Moog keytars. Also, those drummers are on point.

John Luther Adams – Inuksuit

You have to admit this is cool.  Dozens of percussionists, a big warehouse, and John Luther Adams' "ultimate environmental piece".

This is a 15-minute edit of a 60-minute piece, which is absolutely worth a listen if you are so inclined.

Gary Clark Jr. – Bright Lights


    okay, there a couple things to deconstruct here:

  • first of all, sweet chops.
  • as someone noted in the comments, the reflection of the crowd in his aviators is pretty sweet.
  • dave grohl with the drumming assist.
  • yet another sweet double humbucker hollow body.
  • jimi hendrix and kurt cobain were noted left handed guitarists that played right handed guitars with the strings reversed. WHY THE HELL IS HIS LEFT HANDED RHYTHM GUITARIST PLAYING AN ACTUAL LEFT HANDED GUITAR WITH THE STRINGS REVERSED!?
