Shades of Blue: Madlib Invades Blue Note 

2003

Blue Note Records

*** noteworthy


Hip-hop influenced “invasion” of the Blue Note catalog, hopefully angering some purists but more likely giving Blue Note fans something fresh to enjoy with the catalog, likely turning some jazz fans on to hip hop, and introducing old jazz to some young hip hop fans.


Highly recommended for fans of Mr. Madlib and his band of aliases.

Porch Ghouls

Bluff City Ruckus

2003

Roman/Columbia (CK 87033)

Produced by Greg Cartwright and the Porch Ghouls

Executive producer: Joe Perry


Debut (and apparently only) long player from this Florida/Memphis outfit, garage blues and back-porch electric Memphis stomp, letting the Tennessee hillbilly come through without sounding like rockabilly.  Unlike their previous EP of mostly covers, all these songs are credited to band members.

It’s not a great album, just a good one, noteworthy 21st Century garage, produced by Greg Cartwright (Oblivions, Reigning Sound), released on Joe Perry’s Roman label . (The Aerosmith / Reigning Sound connection!)

NYC garage stomp, the guy doing the lead vocals, the first of two sets, the sound coming from the South but with that East-Coast R&B swagger, taking cues from the best years of rock and roll: 1954 – 1963.
