 The Dish: TRAEDONYA: The Bride of New Funk Hip Opera (1068 reads)
MD News Every new singer with a loud voice is being hailed as the "New Queen of R&B" or a "Hip Hop Diva." All this usually means (besides having a hype machine behind her) is that said artist has some vocal chops and the willingness to use them ad nauseam. Some of the best voices of the last ten years -from Whitney Houston to Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige - have taken what a real soul singer would use as the peak moment of a song and made it a starting point. Worse yet, they've made it a style unto itself, replacing tunes with vocal gymnastics that butcher songs. Think American Idol.

 The Dish: Jeff Merchant: Window Rolled Down (1062 reads)
MD News We are seeing the beginnings of a pop music revolution. Musicians from such far-flung musical worlds as James Blunt, Christina Aguilera and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have common elements, ones that underlie most of the great music ever created. These are discernable, memorable melodies and song structures. In response to hip hop, rap music, and those never-seem-to-die punk variations (most indie rock, neopostpunk, blah, blah) listeners and artists are, to quote Christina's new album title, going back to basics. And by going back to those timeless elements, artists are opening up themselves and listeners to fresh new vistas of expression that are so old that they're new.

On Excalibur (), this style manifests itself in soulful sounds similar to the mournful wails of Robin Trower or Jimi Hendrix' cries of love, but are far richer because the cello is larger than the electric guitar and made of resonant wood and thick strings.

If your guitar is too big, your fingers won't be able to reach across the fingerboard with any strength; your right shoulder will get sore from reaching your arm across the body; you'll be wrestling the wood box instead of playing it. And don't be fooled by classical guitars with small bodies but wide necks. Be comfortable; this is fun!

MD News If the 60's had Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and Country Joe and the Fish's "Feel Like I'm Fixing to Die Rag," then today we have the anti-war concept album, The Diaries of Private Henry Hill. Created by the mysterious entity known as Blow Up Hollywood (BUH), this CD/DVD, like Trumbo's book, takes a soldier-eyed view of the hell that is war. The group is completely anonymous. Their faces are never seen, neither on CD covers nor during live performances. Blow Up Hollywood's intention is stated in their manifesto: "Beyond the illusion, without regard of egoism... comes a new breed of artists for the new millennium... Blow up Hollywood is a metaphor expressing our willingness to eradicate all hype."

This is the music explored by guitarist extradordinare, Brian Rolland, whose clear love and affinity for that music is celebrated on his CD, Dreams Of Brazil ().

 The Dish: Lee Lindsey Above the Madding Crowd (1086 reads)
MD News In those freewheeling days of yore, the golden '60s and '70s, it was as normal for an R&B artist like Ray Charles and a folkie like Bob Dylan to both adopt/adapt country and rock and roll to their music, as it was for the Beatles to play Motown songs and Ramsey Lewis, a jazz artist, to reimagine the Beatles. While not as stylistically radical as these artists, on her new CD Above the Madding Crowd, Ms. Lindsay presents a body of songs that, in the past or distant future, would be played on pop, rock and country stations right alongside The Little Willies (with Norah Jones as a band member) and those notorious, dangerous, subversive Dixie Chicks. Sadly, we don't live in that world but you can still check her music.

 The Dish: Following Indiana Gregg Down The Yellow Brick Road (1973 reads)
MD News
Indiana Gregg is emphatic and clear about the musical well that she draws from. "My influences are rock, gospel, jazz and SOUL! Ray Charles is at the top of my list of soul geniuses," she said. "Roberta Flack would be my favorite female soul artist. These two icons very deeply impressed my musical psyche. My favorite pop artists would be Don Henley, Prince and Madonna. Of course, everyone from my era would have to mention Janet and Michael Jackson." Listening to these songs, I can imagine them playing on any pop, country or rock radio station. This not to suggest that she has produced one-size-fits-all music. It's like a stew that has been cooking for a long while: well blended and tasty. Ms. Gregg has achieved a rare feat in the world of music outside of jazz: she has created something organic. And it didn't happen overnight.

MD News Rockin' guitars have been all over us for years. Nearly every band has got a guitar - mostly electric, sometimes acoustic - so what's the big deal when another CD comes out with a guy playing guitar and singing rock and roll? When the guy is Joe Burns and the record is Things Ain't What They Seem, the big deal is here is a guy who plays hard rockin' riffs, blazing leads, and, on the mellow tunes, nice acoustic guitar. What's more, he writes songs that stay in rotation on the radio station in your mind. His songs are about many things, and they are straight expressions from the heart. Like true rock songs, you don't have to have the hipster, college rock references to understand them. No topical, clever irony here.
