Samuel Purdey - Musically Adrift [QTCY-73009]

Samuel Purdey - Musically Adrift [QTCY-73009]

Samuel Purdey has suddenly appeared in fornt of me. They are said to be the true succesor of Steely Dan and on this album we can confirm that their music is heavily influenced by that of Steely Dan. You can find the musicians name closely related to Steely Dan's recording works on this album. One man is Elliot Randall on guitar and the other is Frank Floyd on backing vocals. And 5 tunes of this recording works are mixed by Elliot Scheiner also known for his mixing works with Steely Dan. Their sounds is a kind of the alternative approach of Steely Dan if Donald Fagen and Walter Becker were young in late 90's. So, their music has Acid-Jazz taste too. If you like Steely Dan's early days works, it might be worth listening. [http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~takeito/6-99.html#samuel]

David Garfield & Friends - "Tribute To Jeff" Revisited [CREATCHY 019]

David Garfield & Friends - "Tribute To Jeff" Revisited [CREATCHY 019]

A fresh look at a classic musical collaboration of over 78 world-class musicians and artists paying tribute to the late great drummer Jeff Porcaro. This new remastered cd includes a couple of new vocal versions of tracks that were originally instrumental on the original release, as well as a couple of bonus tracks and surprises!Jeff Porcaro was adored by fans all over the world, and sought out by the very best musicians and artists in the music business. He had a rich, full life cut short long before its time. Jeff not only achieved extraordinary success as a musician, but as a human being as well. Porcaro, drummer nonpareil, multiple Grammy winner with the band Toto and one of the Los Angeles music scene's brightest guiding spirits for two decades, passed away thirteen years ago, but his extraordinary musical soul is alive and in full groove thanks to all of his friends and fans, colleagues and protégés.

Covering an amazingly wide ranging cross section of the genres and styles that inspired, shaped and defined Porcaro's career, Tribute to Jeff by David Garfield and Friends is a grand statement in the Quincy Jones "cast of thousands" tradition and an incredible feat both musically and logistically. Not to mention, great entertainment. But at the core of its diversity and passion lies a labor of love for all the musicians involved, an opportunity for them to laugh and cry and remember the man who set the standard and enriched all of their lives.
