Half Notes: Free Form Funky Freqs – Urban Mythology, Vol. 1 (2008)

by Mark Saleski

This is a certified jazz/funk/power trio bomb. With Vernon Reid on guitar, Jamaaladeen Tecuma on bass, and G. Calvin Weston on drums, there is not a flabby moment on this record. Many people know Reid from his fire-spitting days with Living Colour. If you weren’t paying attention though, you might be lead to believe that Reid was only capable of those tangled rock solos. Not true. The man has soul. Tons of it. Mountains of it! Tecuma and Weston (great names in their own right) have joined forces with Reid to produce this spectacular funk assault.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
