CD Reviews  00 Soul  All Brothers Different Mothers

00 Soul
My recent discovery of California-based "00 Soul" put me in such a contemplative and conflictive funk, I didn't know whether to laugh, or cry.  So, like any red-blooded
macho M-16 totin' hombre, I did both. Laughing to be able to revisit all too familiar territory...crying that I could not forever freeze the moment.

At 45 years of age, the sub-generative aspect of my nature is forever sealed in the 1970's, the period most influential on my life.

And, if you are along my same time frame (or, even if you are not), you need to check these refreshing guys out, particularly, since their very essence pays homage to such '70's periods acts as; War, Brass Construction, the JBs, and all that wonderfully funky era.

I wish I could say that I had a favorite tune among  this repertoire but, alas, I do not.  And, that is a good thing when you can enjoy an entire recording, through and through sans discrimination of selections, especially in this war-torn music industry and today's often sad and shallow offerings.

But, in the interest of titles, check out; "Hot Sake," "Arroz Con Gandules," "Pullin' Teeth," "New Afro," "Brothers and Sisters," "Hey Hey Hey" "Doble-o" and "Stupefied."

Guys, it's truly been a nice experience.  I am still pinching myself because I don't believe you guys really exist.
