The 70’s music scene seen the rise of disco music in the later years of the decade . Proving most popular in North America and Europe. Disco had been around for years before it peaked in popularity .The listeners and fans of disco were club goers . People at the time went to clubs to forget about the fighting and unlawful actives of the previous decade , this contributed greatly to the peak of disco music .
“Disco fused different musical styles such as African, R & B, Latin, Jazz and even Classical into an undeniable force which brought together people of different races, ethnicities and sexual orientations.”[ Remicks , date unknown ] .
The main characteristics of disco music was the vocals in most instances were treated with lots of reverb , another defining characteristic is that the instruments recorded in early disco music were real live instruments , synthesisers and harmonisers were not used until later . Instrumentation, bass was the most important instrument in disco ; it was the drive of the funky rhythm of the song . Syncopation is a strong rhythmic feature of bass lines in disco. Guitar was used a rhythm instrument which had a distinctive sound cause of thecommon use of a wah-wah pedal . Drums with regularly used HI-Hat in rhythm patterns of semi-quavers or demi-semi-quavers , bongos were also a popular choice of percussion in disco recordings . Strings features frequently in disco music , instruments such as violins, violas and cellos , in later recordings synthesizers would have been used to emulate the sounds of a string section. Horns were also used to create a sort of jazz sound , they would be used as an accent instrument . But despite its popularity just like glam rock its success and rise was short lived as its commercialization and silliness was realised my many.
Tonight we chill with some of the greatest male jazz artists - Phil Perry, Najee, Ramsey Lewis, Stanley Clarke, Wayman Tisdale, Art Porter, Herbie Hancock, Gil Scott Heron, Grover Washington Jr., and George Duke just to name a few...so relax and get your chill on with The Men of Jazz!
This is TheSoulFM's third time chillin with Phil Perry and each and everytime it's new and exciting!
Born and raised in East St. Louis, Phil Perry has spent most of his career as one of the most sought-after backing vocalists in the music business. His bright, multi-octave range has played a supporting role on dozens of albums by such acts as Anita Baker, Boz Scaggs, Rod Stewart, Peabo Bryson and George Duke. But he has also distinguished himself through a series of strong solo albums that have highlighted both his ability to interpret classic soul songs as well as his own songwriting skills.
Perry first came to the attention of Soul Music fans as the lead singer of the Montclairs, whose "Begging's Hard to Do" was a moderate hit in 1972. In 1985 he married soul/jazz singer Lillian "Tang" Tynes, and began a marriage partnership that has lasted ever since. After a brief stint as part of the singing duo Perry and Sanlin, Perry went solo in 1991 with The Heart of a Man, an album most notable for Perry's sheer guts (or some thought audacity) in releasing as a single a remake of Aretha Franklin's "Call Me." It was a real coming out for Perry, as he ripped through the song in bold fashion, even surpassing Aretha's revered original version.
With three platinum and five gold albums, Najee is one of the pioneers of what is commonly known as Contemporary Jazz. A combination of jazz improvisation and R&B, this genre forms a bridge from the jazz fusion of the 70s to the jazz pop of the mid 80s.
A native of Jamaica, Queens, New York, Najee shared all of his musical dreams-and later, many professional gigs-with his brother Fareed, a guitarist who was a year younger. Their father passed away when they were very young, but their mother encouraged a deep exposure to jazz via recordings by artists as diverse as the Miles Davis Quintet, Junior Walker and Mongo Santamaria. Najee showed an early interest in the sax but a grammar school teacher steered him towards clarinet when there were no sax chairs available in the school band.
Najee, along with his brother Fareed, attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston with a concentrated study in performance and composition.
Najee left the Conservatory after three years and moved back to New York, where he immersed himself in the club scene. One night when he was out playing straight ahead jazz, Lesette Wilson, keyboardist and musical director of Chaka Khan-who was hot at the time with her trademark hit “Ain’t Nobody”-came in and loved what she heard. She called him to audition for the singer’s upcoming tour, and in no time Najee found himself on the road for a year with the legendary diva, playing alto sax and flute. Najee’s good fortune transferred to Fareed’s career as well when Chaka’s longtime guitarist Tony Maiden failed to show up for a rehearsal. Fareed plugged in and was hired to play alongside Maiden for the tour.
Taking you back to the days of Afro's, platform shoes, hot pants and Blu-Lite in The Basement Parties...it's the jams you loved to slow drag to with that special someone.
